Copic Creations Challenge #19

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you're having fun doing whatever you do to celebrate, and I hope you can check out our CC challenge which is Coloring Fur. Our sponsor is Squigglefly, and we are featuring some cute images of theirs, all done up by our DT. I got this gorgeous tiger called "Just a little longer", and I enjoyed doing this a lot. I know Marianne's technique for doing fur requires a "nasty rag," but in the case of the tiger, I decided that his fur was on the smoother side so I tried doing more tiny strokes with my marker. The colors I used are posted on the CC site. I used a branch from a SU set to create the tree behind Mr. Tiger, and I used a combination of sentiments (SU's "Enjoy" and Gina K's "Lazy Days") to make the card one that I would actually send to someone. I also used some Nesties and my Cuttlebug "Argyle" embossing folder for the main CS. The half-pearls are Pewter from Kaiser. Thanks for stopping by and I want to wish you all a wonderful and happy New Year!
