Critter Coloring: Kittehs

So I have been on a crazy coloring binge since I have discovered the blending technique using colored pencils & baby oil from my post here

I fell in love with the critter stamps from Penny Black – the hedgehog, kitties, mice and critters are just about the cutest things EVER and are versatile enough to use for any age & occasion card!
I have found that Simon Says Stamp is the best place to get them online (other than Ebay) – great prices and even BETTER shipping!  Being Canadian I really appreciate when sellers can offer reasonable rates. 

Ok – enough of the hype, here is my latest creation. 

 

ImageI used only colored pencils & baby oil to color it.  I love that it looks like a cross between watercolor pencils & Copic (or alcohol markers).  Best of both worlds I think!  My boyfriend (yep, he’s *that* awesome) came up with the idea to fussy cut the balloons them pop them up with pop dots. 

The inside has a white matte to cover the ribbon, and I used the “Celebrate” sling mount from the Outlined Occasions set from Stampin Up’s 2011 Sale-A-Bration.

  1. Cutie patootie. I just ordered the Penny Black critters Critter Party. I do wish Stampin’ Up! carried something this cute and whimsical. Love your card and great coloring job. I will have to give that technique a try.

    • Thanks Penny!! Since I have found this blending technique I have done SO MANY Penny Black cards – I just LOVE all the critters!!! I wish Stampin Up would bring back some of their cute critters too 😛
      Let me know how it goes when you get your new stamp set in the mail & try out the new technique!
