The Mystery of the Black Cat Candy Thief

I made this card to play along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge this week.

Mo Manning was very generous and gave the members of her SNR group this wonderful little detective image called Lookin' for Clues which I combined with Bronte dressed in his Halloween cat outfit. Cute, huh?

I printed the image onto my Cryogen white paper with my inkjet printer. Copics used:
Bronte - E41, E42 E43, R21
Cat costume - BV23, BV25
Pumpkin - E92, E95, E97
Coat - originally grays but it did not match the DP so I added E51, E53, E55
Skin - E000, E00, E02
Hats - B91, B93, YG63
Pants - B91
Shoes - Y21, B91, YG63

Then I airbrushed BV11 around the image before removing it from my long rectangle Nestabilitie die. Finished size is 4 x 8.75 inches.

I love how you put Looking for Clues and Bronte together. They fit so well. You can see the story with your presentation of the images. Great coloring and Drippy Goo is perfect!!
