I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge 10

The challenge this week at I ♥ ProMarkers is the above sketch which is being sponsored by Whimsey Stamps. The DT have all used a Whimsey image, take a hop over to the I ♥ ProMarkers blog to check them out.

As you can see I chose to work with this cat, which is odd for me as I'm really not into cats, I think it was it's fluffiness that caught my eye ! I've kept the shading quite light with my Pro Markers and then I cut the image out with a circle Nestability, and blended Scattered Staw and Aged Mahogany Distress inks around the edge. The embossed piece is made using the Victoria Cuttlebug embossing folder and I've blended Aged Mahogany over the top.

The background paper is My Minds Eye that has been slightly distressed with some more Aged Mahogany. The colour of the ribbon hasn't come out too well on the photo, as it's quite a rich burgundy colour IRL. The text is from the S2G challenge which is to use the word Merci on your project, and I'm entering this card. The background card is from Stampin' Up. I'm also entering this card into the Winter Wonderland challenge which is to do some embossing.
I'm posting early tonight as I'm going out for a meal with a friend who I don't get to see very often. Right best go an get ready !
Thanks for looking
