Kitty Kard!

I'm addicted to cats.  I think all my posts are proof of that.  Even this one:

Paper-Michael's, Image-Milk Coffee Stamps, Sentiment-PaperCrafts magazine

This cute image is called "Charlotte and her kitten."  She has a Siamese kitten.  I'm a bit partial to Siamese since my first two cats were Siamese (though my present kitty is Calico, which is really hard to color).

I've been experimenting with my PrismaColor colored pencils.  I'm trying to master shading and highlighting.  How is it?  Any advice?  I'm finding it's best to using my oil painting shading techniques-start darker and gradually lighten.  I'm proud of Charlotte's shirt and skirt, but I gave up on shading her hair finally.

It's a simple card but still cute.  OWH is low on cards right now, so I'm trying to go simpler and quicker while still making quality cards.
