Coloring Fur With Distress Inks Part 2

Okay! So lets do the poor little squished orange Tabby on the bottom of the "pig Pile". I will be using the following Distress Inks for this tabby:
Spiced Marmalade
Vintage Photo
Worn Lipstick
Start off by coloring the whole tabby with a light coating of Spiced Marmalade..

then do the same thing again but this time only in the shadow areas.
Lay down more of the Spiced Marmalade here because we want the cat to be 3 dimentional and a 3 dimentional anything needs shadows!! Have a look at the next picture and you'll see what I mean:

And finally, lay down Vintage photo in your shadows to really darken them.
Don't be afraid of the dark! Its your shadows that will make your coloring come alive.
To finish up, color the nose and tongue with a bit of Worn Lipstick. Tada!

In Part 3 we'll move on to the final and sweetest kitty, the princess on the top, a pretty little yellow kitty...
