Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend ahead!  Time is certainly zipping by these days!  Anyway, I am here today with my weekly DT post for the Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  Since it's the last Friday of the month, the theme is "anything goes" with the option to add a Christmas twist.    The only requirement is that you have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is mine with the Christmas/Winter twist:


My card base and mats are SU Not Quite Navy and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Winter 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Winter Cocoa from Sami Stamps, our sponsor this month.  Samantha generously provided the DT with an image to use and this is the one I chose.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added glitter to the trim on her hood and mittens and used some Shabby White Fran-Tage around the edges of the image for even more sparkle.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A taffeta bow and a few gems from my stash finished 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 my teammies, Dawn, Linda and Penny!  We hope you will play along this week!  It's your last chance to get in the running for an awesome prize from Sami Stamps.  Samantha is offering a $12 GC to purchase digis from her shop.


I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch and Stamp #195 (sketch)
Sami Stamps Challenge #010 (a touch of glitter)
Party Time Tuesdays #161 (anything goes)
Divas by Design (make it sparkle)
Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #2 (photo inspiration and use a hoarded item (patterned paper!))
Stampin' For The Weekend (sparkle and shine)

Here is the sketch:

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!
