Teddy Bo Cat

 It's a new month so time for another sketch and challenge at A Die for a Sketch.  The only rules for entering the Challenge #3 is to follow the sketch and use a minimum of one die cut on your project.  Easy, huh?  Here's a pic of the sketch:
This is the first time ever I've used a Teddy Bo image and this one is called fairyd_tb_cat.  I love that silly look on his face... it's like 'whaaat'?  I used Copics to colour him and although he looks very orange in the picture, it's not really... his tummy, ears and footpads are pinkish while the rest of him is more orange/yellow so it must be the lighting.
The dies I used is Quickutz for the circles and then I got a new Memory Box die named Cherry Blossom which I purchased from Simon Says Stamp and I really like it!  It has a little tab between two petals that you pull together which gives the flower dimension without doing any rolling or folding.  The bow is from my stash and so are the pearls.  The paper is Basic Grey's Plumeria.  I coloured the image, then rubbed in some of Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass distress ink for the shading and then dotted with a glue pen and added Stampin Up's Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Copic colours I used are:  Cat - E99, E97, E95, E93; Tummy and paw pads - R24, R22, R20; Scarf - V17, V15, V12.
Be sure to check out A Die for a Sketch and see what the rest of my teamies have created for you to check out.

O M G! Such a cute image. I think you did a fabulous job with the coloring. I just love BG Papers and Plumeria is one of my favorites since I'm partial to anything purple.

Oh, how cute he is, the little fellow. He is doing very well on the great paper.
In the first moment I thought it would be a dog, but as I read I realized ...it's a cat.
Thank you for your nice commentaries to my card. I am very happy that you like it.

Greetings from Daen'Ys
