Mycroft goes Siamese.

Hi Everyone! I come to you from the land of the plague. I've pretty much been in bed since the start of 2019! No... not an epic hangover, the mother of all colds (possibly the man flu!) attacked me and I was truly knobbled! Anyway, germs can't reach you through the tinterweb, so you are safe to read on.

Mycroft is back on Dr.Digi's House of Stamps Friday! My favourite Dr.Digi cat (yes, there is more than one) is this time, a long haired Siamese! (Tho I realise I'm not sure if that's super different from a Persian? )

You know I like to set myself a bit of a colouring challenge, so this time I decided to tackle wet fur, underwater fur and floating fur. It really was a challenge. I think I might be trying again, I wasn't happy with all of it, but it seemed a good point to finish up and think about it more for next time! (Crafty colourist friends, I really do want to tempt you into having a go!? He's only £1.50/$1.99 in the shop!)

Here is the stamp -

And here is my version -

So I used polychromo pencils as normal, and actually didn't change much (for me). Dr. Digi has kindly included lots of detail to help on this one, even the shine of the bowl!

I was going to go without white posca pen, but decided in the end that the white highlights and damp spot really needed something extra, so it was either posca pen or glossy accents, and I went with the pen. Font is A.C.M.E. Special Agent. Background paper and corner gems from the stash.

Thanks for joining me today and sharing in my colouring adventure! I shall aim for more impressive bedraggled cat results next time I tackle him, lol! Click the badge below to check out the busy Dr.Digi's facebook group!


  1. I hope you feel better soon Annabel!
    Well I don't know where to start, I'm just sitting here looking at all the details of your coloring! I don't know why you are not happy! It's AMAZING! from the fur in the water to the wet fur on the chest. The tiles and the droplets of water on the floor are so realistic!
    Fabulous coloring Annabel!
