Another Ketto Card

Good morning,

Since I was in the  'animal' theme mode from last friday's Bellariffic challenge, I decided to color up Felix Ketto with a Flower.  So as usual I stamped on Bella's Bestest paper with Black Memento and colored with pencils and gamsol.

I added many colors to Felix, trying to get him to look like he had fur - I don't know how well you can see in the picture, but I think I captured what I ventured out to do. What do you think?  I added a bit of cloud shading in behind and some grass at his feet.  I just hope someday I'm able to do grass as good as Linda and Paula. It's not as easy as you would think.(sigh!)

I used paper from the 6x6 pk of
Earth Love by Cosmo Cricket.  Have I told you how much I love the 6x6 paper packs? Well I do! I have so many 6x6 pks, I need to start using them, I can't hoard them forevah! lol!.
I used nesties labels 12 to cut out the image and the layer behind. (BTW - the card base and the layer behind Felix is actually a rust color not red like it looks) Border punch is by SU.  I finished up with some glitter on the flower, used glossy accents for the middle of the flower, added some ribbon, flower and a button.

Thanks for peeking in today.I hope you enjoy the rest of the long weekend. 
Till next post....

Great card. Your coloring is fabulous.
I have a love for the 6X6 papers as well. I'm actually ashamed to tell anyone how much I have; I need to do what you are doing and use them. I tend to hoard them as well.

You have many gorgeous cards. TFS
