WT237 SCS challenge



Meet Roger and Jo. Two cats who know how to have fun on an autumn day! This is one of my new releases for Squigglefly Digital Stamps that is currently available to purchase for your immediate use!
I joined in the SCS challenge for today, which I haven't done in a dog's age. I have missed those challenges! Today Julia asked us to do something out of your comfort zone. For me, that is using white on white layering. I have always loved the look of cards that had it, but never had the guts to actually try it. I actually think I did pretty good, considering this is my first crack at it. It sure was hard to think of how to do it so it wouldn't be boring!
I popped up both layers (also unusual for me to only have two layers!) and used my Scor pal to give one white layer some interest by creating a frame around the main image.
I printed my image onto Manga drawing pad paper with my laser jet printer and heat set before coloring with the following Copics:
Pumpkin:
Y32, YR12, 15, 16, E97, 99
Pumpkin leaves:
YG21, 23, 63 I also used YG21 on the stem as well as E31, 35
Right cat: B91, 93, 95, E70 and R81 for the blush of his cheeks, inside ears and nose
Left cat: E70, 71, 74, B60
Ground: C3, 4, 6, E31, 35, 39
B000 all around them, faded out with colorless blender



I did have a good time playing the challenge today! Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving your sweet comments!
Hugs!

  8. I love to see how the artist of an image colors the image and it's not often we get to see that so I truly thank you for not only giving us such wonderful images to color and use, but for also creating with them yourself and sharing that with us.
    I love the popped up layer because it's really effective with the white on white. The twine is a great addition too!
