Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 19 April 2019

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "CATS OR DOGS".

Here is my inspiration post with that theme.
 For my birthday card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Purple Woods - Grayscale" (which comes in a set along with "Spring Spread - Grayscale" and "Awake in a Purple Dream - Grayscale".  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Posca gold and white pens.

The backing papers are from The Works.  One of the papers I put through an embossing folder and inked over gently with a brown Versamagic ink pad.

I have finished the card off with a Joanna Sheen border die, gem flowers, flowers from a friend, Sue Wilson die-cut greenery and a die-cut sentiment.

The Promarkers that I have used are: 
Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Soft Peach, Tan and Putty
Cat - Ice Grey 1, Ice Grey 2 , Soft Peach and Bright Green
Dress - Leaf Green and Bright Green
Trees/background - Cocoa, Burnt Sienna and Cornflower.
