Monochromatic Kitty


Today marks the start of another challenge (#25) over at CCC Digi Creations, and this time it is a Monochrome theme , using a Digi image.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Auroroa Wings Stamps, and the winner will receive US$10 worth of stamps from the store.

I used the Kitten in a Tea Cup image, and decided to leave the kitten white and make the flowers around it, and on the china, orange.

The image was coloured with prismacolor pencils. To mount it, I cut away the blank part of the image and then mounted it over a brown piece of card covered with some net, to mimic a table and cloth.

The image panel was then mounted over an embossed piece of yellow card that I had used the letterpress technique with orange ink, but the ink did not colour the yellow as well as I had hoped.

I placed some ribbon around the panel before adhering it to the base.  The designer paper was from an Amy Tangerine pad Ready, Set Go.
Some flat back pearls were added as the finishing touch.
