Something New

Happy weekend my sweet bloggy friends. Today I decided to try a new technique, well, maybe it isn't quite a technique but rather approach to making a card.

For challenge #19 over at Delicious Doodles the theme
is to try something you have never tried before.

So, I decided to try monochromatic. Whew, a lot more difficult than I at first blush thought it would be! I picked an image called "Just Purr-fect" from Delicious Doodles, and set to work... It felt like I used all of one of my Spectrum Noir grey markers while I was blending layer after layer trying to get the shading just right... then the skin and eyes...oh my gosh! Well, here she is...with the final little touch of a handmade stick pin!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
