Feline Patience

     Today was play day.  I told you guys that I'm crazy about these Mo's Digital Pencil images.  Well here's another one.  Isn't it fun!
     Speaking of fun . . . yesterday the FedEx man brought me 100 new Copic markers.  I have two full sets and went through what colors were left and picked out 100 that I thought I would really need to round out my collection.  That should be the end of my Copic purchasing until I run out of ink. ;-)  Anyway, I just thoroughly enjoyed myself coloring this image.  I think I'm improving on the blending.  I do think I'm going to try some other paper brands in the future, but I was really pleased with how the image turned out.
     Here's a pic of the little tag that slides in behind the image.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Claudia and Company Challenge--tag it with love

Unknown said...

Oh my goodness... This is such a cute card.. I love that image.. It looks wonderful..

100 more copic.. that is wonderful. I only have about 40.. I was going to ask you if you use a special kind of paper.. It does seem to me that some papers bleed more that others.. What do you use.

Hugs, Linda
