Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  At last, the weekend is upon us!  Hope you have fun plans for the weekend.  I think we're going to be trying to catch up on everything that's fallen behind, although if the weather is nice, that could change in a heartbeat!  I am here now to share my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "read all about it".  We want to see your reading- or book-inspired projects, but don't forget you must have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand).

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Blue Bayou and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Collectable "Remarkable" 6x6 pad.  The cute image is A Tasty Read from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon and a button from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored 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 play along this week!  Our sponsor for the month of September is Digistamps 4 Joy.  One randomly-selected participant in this month's challenges will win 5 digis of their choice from the DS4J shop.  There are so many gorgeous images to choose from!  There are also lots of fantastic site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday #274 (sketch)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #68 (anything goes)

Here is SS-274:
