Brownish Cats



These two cats were done in a similar way. 

The yellow-eyed cat (actually a mix of gold & green Smooch inks) started as a varigated brown cardstock stamped with dark brown ink.  I added more color with brown and dark brown chalks, outlined it in black over the dark brown, added smooch for eyes & nose.  And - touched up the center of the pupil with a white gel pen.



 The blue-eyed cat started as a single tone tan/brown cardstock stamped in brown.  It was colored with browns & blackish grey chalks with just a hint of a orange-brown color in a few spots.  The eyes & nose are Smooch inks (eyes are mix of blue-green & silver), and I added white gel pen for the center of the dark part of the eye to make it "pop".

Adorable! Still waiting to see how you use all these cute kittens!--kids birthday cards? get well cards? thinking of you?

Thanks! Hold on until Friday and you'll see my first card with these - a "Thinking of You".
