Thanks friend!

While I was coloring the second "Madame Cat" card, I realized that I was not happy with the total pinkness of R81, so I made my own "less than R81" pink Copic marker by mixing one squeeze of R81 refill with a few pipettes full of Copic blending fluid.

The result is a paler pink which I used to color the dress of this super-sweet little girl from the same Cats unmounted sheet by The Enchanted Gallery.



I used E40 & R0000 for her skin; YR30, Y23, and & 26 for her hair; R81 & "less than R81" for her dress, and C1, C0, C00 for the kitten.

The patterned paper is from the Urban Prairie 6x6 pad by Basic Grey. The scalloped ovals and the bottom layer (with the paper lace trim) was popped up on dimensional adhesive. The pearls and button were airbrushed with R83 and the Copic airbrush system.

The edges of the patterned paper and the little sentiment-bearing tag (Mixed Messages by Paper Trey) were distressed to add a shabby feel to the card. Last of all, the card is a small one, measuring 3.5" x 5". Fun size!!!

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall be entering this card in the following challenges:
