Cara ... When I colour fur I use my markers to create little dots to give texture and to blend the colours. I used my pink grey's to colour this cute little fuzzy owl. I also used the gorgeous new Graph'It Shake Glitter pens to colour my die-cuts and add a little sparkle!

Simonne ... I am trying to make a dent in the huge pile of Christmas cards I need to make this year, so I inked up this cute Christmas Mouse for my furry friends challenge card this week.  I used the Neutral greys to colour him and used my white opaque pen to add some highlights to the fur.
