Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  We don't have anything special going on this weekend, so hopefully it will give me time to catch up.  Anyway, I am here this morning with my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is "things with wings".  You can interpret that as you wish, but please remember, you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project to enter.

Here is my card:

 
My card base and mats are GKD Fresh Asparagus and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Nature's Storybook Petite Papers pack.  I stitched around all the panels.  The gorgeous image is Spring Nocturne by ching chou kuik for Sweet Pea Stamps. I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I was trying to practice my skin and hair coloring and referred to Alyce's fantastic video tutorial where she colored this same image. I can't come close to her exquisite coloring, but it's always good to practice!  Thanks for the inspiration, Alyce!  I hope you don't mind I used the same colors as you did!  I added some vintage lace and a few pearls from my stash.  A dyed seam binding bow and a vintage earring finished my card.
 
Here is a close-up of the colored image:
