  20. Hi Pauline

    Oh this is a super cute one. Great image and brilliant layout - such delicate colours too.

    You asked what Promarker colours I had used to colour my Penny Black cat.

    To start with I colour the whole cat in "ivory" then I add finishing touches using "oatmeal", "apricot" and "blossom".

    Hope this helps.

    There are just so many Promarkers to go at. I have built my supply up slowly over many weeks by just ordering the odd two or three every so often - but it is surprising how quickly then mount up. I have yet to wear one out and I use them every day!!

    Have fun!

    Love Jules xx
