Another Pink Cat Digi Peek!

I really love this image!!! Little Betty the Lady Bug is looking so darn sweet perched on her flower! You can get this new Digi Image over at Pink Cat Studio's Digi Store. At just 3.49 us a piece, they are a steal! Not only that, you have the option of resizing your images to your taste.

This was a very simple card! I coloured the image with Copics, highlighted and pollinated with White Gel Pen and then sponged Caramel Ink around the entire image to gie it a distressed look.l I also used some black microliner dots and strokes to add some dimension to the image! I find that for black areas, such as the dots on the lady bug, I prefer to use shades of cool greys, with slate being the darkest colour I use. This is because if you colour something completely black, it tends to have a very flat look and is rather dull looking. Even when the sun shines on something black, you will see shades of grey, dark blue, purple or green depending on the pigment in the paint.

May arts ribbon makes a cool border for this card, picking up the brown in the centre of the flower!!!!

Head on over to the Pink Cat Digi Store to see all the neat new images!!!

Happy Stamping!
