Good morning everyone. It was so nice of all of you to wish Chesney a happy birthday yesterday!
I have to be honest with you here and tell you a little secret about myself. I have a terrible time coloring eyes! I'm never sure what part to color and what part to leave white. I was always calling Chesney up and asking her until finally she drew an eye and colored the colored parts so I have it saved to my computer and I can look at it when in question. I know, it sounds silly even to me and I'm sure she's laughing at me right now.
But the image they released today; Scaredy Cat threw me for a loop. The part that is usually black is white, and I colored in some of the white part below the black leaving little white spots, but the eye still didn't look right. So, I colored in the white in the center and it looked weird to me. I finally just colored it all in black leaving some colored below with little white spots. I am not sure this is right, but it looks okay to me!
Now with all of that build up, here's my card

This card also qualifies for the Squigglefly Challenge #3 which is to use bordering blue, chocolate chip, and pretty in pink. I didn't have the bordering blue so I improvised with brocade blue instead.
I colored the cat with copics and here are the colors I used.
I'm getting pretty good at remembering to take pictures of the colors! The sky is chalked and the designer paper is some more of the stuff they had on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I tied a little bow and then tied a square pink button to the center of that.
At the last minute I decided to add some crystal lacquer to the eyes. If I've done the eyes wrong I'm only drawing more attention to them! LOL!
This cat looks like he's tried to jump over the fence and couldn't quite make it and now he doesn't know what to do! Or maybe he thought the grass was greener on the other side of the fence and he jumped up only to see it wasn't. What's your take on the image?
I hope you all have a wonderful day and find a little time to create something. Thanks for looking!
