Fun Cats

Last night I drew some funky cats and scanned them into the computer. I printed out several copies on card so that I could colour them in different ways.

The first one I have coloured using Inktense pencils – lovely to use as they are thick and slightly waxy to use, and then you can blend the colours with a wet brush. They become set once dry, so you can add more and wet them without reactivating the previous ones.

I am planning on colouring the other ones using acrylics, Sharpies, coloured pencils or watercolours, and perhaps some Perfect Pearls, as the fancy takes me, and maybe adding some Zentangle and doodles. Lots of scope!

Last year I began a project using my then new Kitty Squad stamp, but never completed it because of everything else that was going on last year – I had hoped to make a Valentine card for my hubby but never managed it because I was under a lot of stress at the time in the run-up to when my operation should have taken place. I still have the bits I made for that project, and I am hoping to do it for him this year instead. Having practised drawing the funky cats, I will be incorporating one into his card, and using the Kitty Squad stamp as a background. Watch this space.
