Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi there!  I'm back this evening with a second post for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  Normally, I wouldn't post my card until tomorrow, but I'm posting early this week because I still have lots to do before my trip.  I promised more details on that, so here they are.  I am going to Dallas tomorrow for a Coloring Retreat! Zoe from Make it Crafty and Barbara from Little Miss Muffet Stamps have organized a wonderful weekend of coloring with friends!  There are about 20 people getting together to color, color, color!  It will be wonderful to meet some of my on-line friends and a few of my teammies, too!  These ladies are all awesome colorists, so I hope to pick up some tips from the pros! No matter what, I know it will be fun!

Anyway, back to my post.  The theme for this week's challenge is a color inspiration (from Seeds).  Here is the color palette we are working with.  Please note that the colors do not have to be an exact match, but you still must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is my card:
My card base and mats are SU Rose Red and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Plum Seed collection.  The cute image is Shopping Day by Time For Tea Designs for Whimsy Stamps.  I was lucky to have won this stamp when it was released!  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card an colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few sparkly gems finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by again!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the fab creations from my teammies, Dawn, Linda, Penny and Kathi.  We hope you will play along this week.  Our sponsor for the March challenges is Elisabeth Bell, who is offering one lucky participant 2 images from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  Check out the challenge to see which adorable stamps you could win!
