Copic/ProMarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good afternoon!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have fun plans for the upcoming weekend!  I am late posting today because I have had major computer problems.  It seems some nasty malware snuck onto my computer and I've spent all day scanning, restoring and updating.  I think it's better now, but I am definitely going to keep an eye on everything for awhile. Not a fun way to spend the day! Anyway, I'm here to post my DT card for this week's Copic/ProMarker Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is "May flowers".  You can interpret this as you wish, but you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Cambridge Court 6x6 pad.  I used some Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight diecuts to frame the bottom DP panel and the main image.  The sweet image is Bella Sole Love Letters by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.  I stamped her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added in a cloudy sky and some grass, also done with Copics.  I added tiny pearl accents to her dress, the flowers and the corners of the diecuts using my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen. The sentiment is computer-generated.  A cluster of Wild Orchid Crafts roses and two sprays of pearl beads finished my card.

Here is a close up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/ProMarker Challenge and check out the gorgeous floral creations from the rest of the DT.  We hope you will play along!  The May challenges are being sponsored by 2 Cute Ink.  One randomly-selected participant in the challenges will win 3 digistamps of their choice from the 2 Cute Ink shop.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

  5. Carla, Are you sure you are not a professional colorist? I'm always amazed at how gorgeous your coloring is with every one of your cards. When I grow up I want to be able to color like you. LOL. (I'm sure I'm older than you) Anyway this card is just delightful and I really love the way you make your clouds and sky. Absolutely lifelike. Enjoy your weekend.
