Copic/Promarker Challenge - The Outlawz (and More)

Good morning!  Happy Friday! Are you looking forward to the weekend like I am?  Hope you have something fun planned!  I'm here bright and early to share my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site.  This week, the theme is "monochromatic/vintage coloring".  My card is also for this week's Craft Your Passion Challenge #91 (anything goes + distressing) and Challenge #17 at Through The Craftroom Door Challenge Blog (monochromatic).

Here is my card:

I started with a card base of SU Blue Bayou and layered with monotone papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello 6x6 pad.  I saw a similar sketch somewhere, but I can't remember where I saw it.  If you recognize it, let me know and I'll link it.  My sweet image is Jack & Ginger from Mo's Digital Pencil.  You can find it in Mo's store here.  I printed it on Cryogen White and colored in monochromatic colors with my Copics.  I did a bunch of distressing around all the panels.  I cut out the banner from the patterned paper and added it to the top of the card.  A bit of crocheted lace trim finished my vintage card.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit the Copic/Promarker Challenge thread and feast your eyes on the gorgeous creations from my amazingly talented teammies and our wonderful Guest Designer for January, Linda Palmer!  We hope you'll be inspired to pull out your Copics and join in on the challenge.  As always, there are some great prizes up for grabs!

Have a great day and hope to see you soon!
