What's New, Pussycat? Welcome Ana and Leigh!

Ana and Leigh have both joined the amazing DT at The Cat's Pajamas! Their work is absolutely beautiful: check out Ana's blog here and Leigh's blog here, and I'm sure you'll agree. Please join me in welcoming them to the team!


Today I made this card with stamps from two companies: the stamp of the girl on the chair is by Inky Antics, and "What's New Pussycat?" is by The Cat's Pajamas (of course!). Patterned paper is from the Autumn Leaves MOD Collection.
And this week I have been experimenting with the Gamsol technique which basically allows regular colored pencils to give the effect of watercolors. There's a tutorial on the technique here if you'd like to check it out! I liked it because I felt I had a little more control over the distribution of color than I do with watercolor pencils and blender pens. Let me know what you think!
