Inky Impressions Challenge!

Hello Hello!
This is my first time participating with Inky Impressions as a Design team Member for challenge team A! Whoop Whoop!! Hopefully I get this done right and painlessly because I have asked so many questions I'm sure they are wishing they had never met me!! Lol
Any how, this weeks challenge was Animals. Can I just say there are some darn cute ones to pick from at the Inky Impressions Store!?! I chose Snow Kitten for mine. She is soooooo stinking cute!!!

It's so funny that as I went to go back and get the link for her for this post, I've used almost the same color's as they do in the shop! I'm not sure if that is sad on my part or what but... oh well I guess! Great minds?
Color's used are here:

Fur: E50, YR23, W3, W5, W7, YR23.
Mouth: E70, R11, E04, Ears: R11, E70, E04. Eyes: G05, G29.
Sweater: V28, V25, V22, V20.  Skirt and accessories: RV99, RV69, RV66, RV63 and RV00.
Flowers on scarf Y35, G03.

For the background, I cut out a center snow border and dug out a cloud cut from the Silhouette.
(TIP: I like to keep extra's in a bag so I don't have to cut new ones every time I need one)
It was as simple as using some cheep dollar store sponges cut to small pieces and sponging out the background using inks from Stampin' up. Colors included: Soft Sky and Pacific Point for the sky and Lavender Lace and Bordering Blue for the snow area.
I then cut my background to size, lightly taped it to a piece of printer paper and ran it through the printer and printed the image out onto my back ground.....
of course I couldn't get it right the first time and ended up having to make my background smaller due to over print. :P
I then printed a second image out at the same size on copic paper and fussy cut her out.

Added some pop up tape and popped her on to the back ground. Easy Peesy! Then to colored her up!

I added some Tim Holtz embossing paste for some fluff, then made it pretty with Stickles. Cause everything is better with glitter right??
The white snow dot's are filled in with Molotow pen then stickled as well....

I can't wait to try this beautiful Snow Kitten again after I've done the Kit and Clowder animal class!!
I hope you have enjoyed this Post! Hopefully not over kill :)
