Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have fun plans for the upcoming weekend!  I hope to finish up my craft room and then strive to keep it neat and organized!  I know hubby will be thrilled once his part of the "project" is done!  Anyway, I am here with the first of two posts today to share my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is another color inspiration.  We've been enjoying adding in one of these here and there.  Please know that the color palette shown is just a guide.  You do not have to match every color exactly.  We just want to see the general color scheme on your project.  You must have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) to enter.

Here is the color inspiration:

Here is my take on it:

My card base is SU Not Quite Navy and the solid patterned papers are from the Authentique Winter and Basic Grey What's Up 6x6 pads.  The gorgeous image is Icy Snow Queen by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff of AuroraWings. Mitzi is our sponsor this month and she shared one of her beautiful images with each of the DT members to use for the challenges.  This is the one I chose.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics in the inspiration color palette.  For embellishments, I only added the icy bling corners. I added Icicle Stickles to finish 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 fabulous creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will find time to play along this week!  One lucky participant in our January challenges will win a $10 GC toward the purchase of digis of their choice from Mitzi's AuroraWings Etsy shop.  You'll definitely want to be in the running for this fantastic prize!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion Challenge #196 (cool colors)
Papertake Weekly (new stash; my digi is new)
Stamps by AuroraWings January Facebook Challenge (your favorite colors; these are mine)

Have a great day and I will be back a little later with my GDT card for The Digi Bells blog hop! Hope to see you again then.
