Through The Craft Room Door Guest Designer

Hello Friends!
Today I'm excited to share a creation that I made as the Guest Designer

Last month I was honored to have my card chosen as winner  ...
and if that wasn't exciting enough, they also asked me to be a guest designer
and the card I share today will also be in the Through The Craft Room Door Magazine.
 How cool is that!!!  Thanks so much to Deonna and team for this opportunity!

The theme is ANYTHING GOES and the sponsor is Morgan's Art World
Today I'm creating with the image titled 'Cat in Flowers'

I have a lot of friends who are cat lovers so I'm sure I'll be
using this image over and over again for various occasions.  
I must admit ... this is a really cute kitty!!

Here's a close up of my coloring ... it's not perfect ...
but not too bad either.
 I've used both Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (kitty) and Spectrum Noir pencils (flowers) for the coloring on today's image.  I haven't taken the time to color with the pencils very much but I will be now because I REALLY liked working with them!!

I do hope you will check out the Through The Class Room Door blog
and then come join in the fun.  It's a great place to be ... lots going on!

Love this stamp and how you colored the kitty and flowers. Putting this on such a pretty fame and background paper made it so elegant and the kitties on the bottom are a perfect touch. Congrats on guest designers spot.

Oh, my gosh, this is so cute! Not just cute, but pretty, too! My kitty used to lay in the flowers, and now LuLu likes to tuck herself under the blooming azalea branches in the spring. Funny how she only does it when it's in bloom. Love your coloring and all the extras that make this such a fun and fabulous card!

Very pretty die cuts and composition! The penciled flowers turned out nicely. I haven't tried the Spectrum Noir pencils yet, but have been playing with my first set of pencils (Prisma watercolors) recently.
Thanks for joining Eclectic Ellapu’s August challenge!
