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.
