Copic/Promarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  I'm off to a bit of a late start today, but I'm here to share my DT card for the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz.  We've had a few changes to our team.  Our wonderful team leader, Lynne Armstrong, has stepped down  to pursue an exciting new business venture.  We will miss her a lot, but wish her all the best!  Also, Darlene Lyons, who was formerly part of the Twisted Thursday team, has joined our team! We are thrilled to have her with us!  We are also excited to have a new sponsor for our our challenge this month!  Mayzy Arts is offering a prize of 6 digis from her shop to one lucky winner from this month's challenge entries. Be sure to visit Mayzy's Etsy shop and check out her fun images!

OK, on to this week's challenge.  The theme is "inspired by nature" - any way you want to interpret that.  You just need to have some Copic or other alcohol marker coloring on your creation.

Here is my take on the challenge:

I started with a card base of SU Soft Sky and layered with patterned papers from the Prima Sun Kiss 6x6 pad.  I created a little nature scene by merging two images: Sunflower Garden from Make it Crafty and Bicycle from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I printed the merged image onto Cryogen White and colored it with my Copics.  I added a few punched butterflies and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers (Pastel Green Cherry Blossom, Cream Aster Daisies and Earth Tone Roses) to finish my card.  I am also entering my card in the Wild Orchid Challenge #46 (things with wings).  I have butterflies and a bird on my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over to the Copic/Promarker Challenge and check out the fabulous "nature" creations from my wonderful DT sistahs!  We hope you will play along with us!  We always love seeing your beautiful creations and there are some awesome prizes up for grabs when you play along with the challenges at The Outlawz!

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter to those that celebrate!
