Christmas Kittens

 This card is my DT entry for The Holly and the Ivy Christmas Challenge.  It is an Anything Christmas Goes challenge.  The image I  used for today's card is from Aurora Wings.  For the first time in nine years I did not use Copics.  This image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.  I definitely don't like the results as well as I do Copics, but it is something different.  I will be taking some pencil classes from Kit & Clowder as soon as I make the time.  I thought it would be good to have something that shows how I colored before taking the class for comparison.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Digi Choosday - Anything Goes
Show Us Your Pussycats - Furrything Goes
Stinkin' Inkers - Lovely as a Tree 
2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Anything Goes with a Critter
Ching-Chou Kuik - Dogs or Cats
Crafty Animals - Anything Goes with an Animal
Sparkles Christmas Forum - Feature a Creature
Dragonfly Dreams - Include an Animal
Alphabet Challenge - A is for Animals
Winter Wonderland - Cute Christmas

The little white kitten is my favorite!

Oh Diane, I am so excited to see that you have given your pencils some love. You did a great job, we are always our own worst critics. Very cute image too. I look forward to seeing more pencil work here.
