Hello there lovely peeps, and a very happy Tuesday to you all.
Another Through the Classroom Door “Anything Goes” challenge has rolled around again and our very generous sponsor this week is…..
Squigglefly has a very large selection of digital images created by many very talented Artists. I did not own any of their images prior to this challenge, but make no mistake when I say I will be visiting them often, and you should too!
For today’s challenge I was generously provided with this very cute image called “YUM”, which speaks for itself!

I created a C.A.S card for a change as I find some images just need to be front and centre without any frills.
I also challenged myself with this one too; given that I chose to make the cat black and working with gray Copics to create black is still not my strong suit. I also attempted to create the illusion of a real glass bowl using glossy accents.
Basically, I like the way it turned out, minus the orange fish bleeding into the cats eyes after I applied said glossy accents. (So, no close up shots this week). However, I definitely still need to work on creating black with any of the gray collections. You know the age old adage; practice makes perfect!  
One thing I did do different though was I used my Neutral collection of gray tone markers, and I must say that I like working with them much better than the Cool collection. Not sure why yet, but I just do.
So, I hope my card this week has inspired you enough to join us this week, but if not perhaps stopping by the blog and taking a peek at my fellow D/Teamies creations will.
I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Please take care and thanks for stopping by!
