Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi again!  I'm back, as promised, with my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Being the last Friday of the month, our theme is "anything goes" with the option to add a Christmas twist.  The twist is completely optional.  The only requirement is to have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is my card:

I went with the Christmas twist and kept the layout "flat" for better mailing.  Yes, I'm learning - lol! My card base and mats are SU Lucky Limeade and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Festivus 6x6 pad.  The fun image is digi16709 Need More Elves from QKR Stampede.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added a bunch of Waterfall, Red and Green Stickles to the gifts and star on the tree and Glossy Accents to Santa's spectacles.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the fun creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will be inspired to play along this week!  This is your last chance to be in the running for the fab prize from our June sponsor, Digistamps4Joy.  One lucky participant in this month's challenges will win 5 digis of thier choice from the Digistamps4Joy shop.  There are also lots of great site-wide prizes to be won when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz.
