I totally challenged myself on the colors for this one. I have the hardest time coloring lightly, and with more of a pastel-soft look. I’m super envious of our Anna-Sigga and her creations!
By trying to color with only light tones, in order to keep low contrast on the image, the picture came out with a sort-of vintagy feel to it. I added some vintage camera paper & then I couldn’t stop myself from adding that contrast I desperately needed with some black washi and black silky ribbon. 🙂
I used the following Copic Markers:
Cat: YR02, YR07, YR20, R81
Bow/Spats: R81, R83
Dress: B00, B02, B04, C0
Sweater: Y23, Y26, Y28
Camera: C0, C1, C3, C5
That black contrast was perfect for the sentiment as well, which is from the fabulous Photo Kaylee Clear Stamp set.
With some clever coloring techniques and a bit of self-challenge, a whole new-to-me look came through with this card. I’m super happy with, plus the Hipster Cats are seriously fun to color up!
