***This stamp came from one of my favorite stamp sets: Pink Cat Studio's Cat Plate 1. This is a really good stamp set because it includes "fashion kitties" as well as "Christmas kitties". It's rare to see sets include everyday use with holiday use... it's kind of refreshing! :)

Wow... side by side there is a HUGE difference!!! The black cat was done with Copic markers and the blonde cat was done with Stampin up markers. Now, I have been trying to shade and blend with Stampin Up markers for quite a while now... which I WAS able to do... just not well. Copics just take everything to a whole new level. I REALLY need to take the certification course! I'm sure there are a ton of techniques I can learn. For now though, I'm just going to keep practicing. I can honestly say that these markers have taken my paper crafting to a whole new level. It's the difference between black and... well, blonde! LOL!
