Alcohol Marker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend ahead!  I think we will be dodging thunderstorms all weekend, but hopefully, there will be some breaks in the action to get out and do a few things.  Before getting on with the day, I am here to share my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "music".  Interpret that any way you'd like, but you must have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is what I came up with:

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Surprise 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Retro Chester by Pollycraft for Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Isn't he just the cutest?  I colored him up with my Copics and framed him with a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle diecut.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added a few pieces of confetti, a sparkly epoxy balloon and a few gems to finish my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the fantastic creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you play along this week!  Our August challenges are being sponsored by our very own DT sistah, Dawn, who is offering up three digis from her LilyPinkScraps Etsy shop to one randomly-selected participant in this month's challenges. There are also lots of fabulous site-wide prizes to be won when you enter any of the challenges at The Outlawz.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Seems A Little Sketchy #45 (sketch)
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner #74 (music)
Through The Craftroom Door Challenge (anything goes)

Allsorts Challenge #218 (photo inspiration)
