Hello, my dear crafty friends!
Can you believe I'm here posting on a Saturday evening?! I cannot remember the last time I did that!
I've been coloring up a storm lately. Makes me so happy when I am able to find some time to do that! As I often say in my Copic classes, coloring is great therapy!
My card today is made with one of the free, printable images that come in the Coloring Cats & Dogs book from Copic's Coloring Foundations Series of coloring guides. Such a sweet image, isn't it?
The Coloring Cats & Dogs book is perfect for anyone who wants to learn how to color animals better, as well as improve their Copic coloring techniques. It will teach you how to smoothly color, blend, add texture, and create fur in a variety of lengths. The book has 10 fully illustrated step-by-step tutorials, as well as several pages of line art (all manner of cats & dogs) that you can copy & color as much as you like.
I followed the instructions for coloring up the fluffy tabby kitty, only changing the colors I used. The guide makes it EASY PEASY, my friends!
I copied the image in black ink on X-Press It Blending Card. The patterned papers are from the Meow collection from My Mind's Eye. How cute are those papers???
Here's a look at the Copic Markers I used:
While we're on the subject of cats & dogs, did you know that one of this year's brand new Copic Coloring Workshops is Coloring Animals? It is such a great class, and includes several cats & dogs as well as other fun animals. I highly recommend taking it if you can get to one in your area! I'll be teaching in Toronto, Ontario CANADA on May 5th & 6th & then in Philadelphia on May 19th & 20th. Come and color with me!!! I promise you'll be glad you did!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends! I'll be back tomorrow with a very different project from my usual cards. I'm pretty excited about it; so come on back and see me!
Have a fabulous rest of your weekend!
