So this bit of coloring was a two-fold experiment.  The first part was I didn't use my usual paper, X-Press it or even Neenah solar white but this textured paper from Michael's.  It is actually a 5.5" square card with envelope pack and I really liked the way it looked.  I stamped the Stampendous image with MFT Hybrid black ink pad and the image came out
very clear (I was surprised because of the texture of the paper).  Then I colored it and was pleasantly surprised with how it came out.  The second part of the experiment was the dark background ( I so love how Sandy Allnock  does her wonderful dark backgrounds and I have only used distress inks for mine).  The colorless blender didn't work very well on this paper to pull color out so a little weird on the dots in the background. I used a black multiliner to added more definition to the fur cause it kind of got lost in the color and it helped with the edges. No card made yet but here is the colored image. And yet again I forgot to watermark!

Most of the markers I used and one multiliner.
