Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday and happy 4th of July to those in the US and anyone else who might be celebrating!  It is a beautiful day here in AL and I can't wait to get out and enjoy it!  Before I do, I am here with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  As you may have already seen, we've changed this challenge from using alcohol markers only to using any coloring medium.  You still must have a colored image on your project, but this gives lots more options, in case you prefer pencils, watercolors, etc.  Of course, you can still use your trusty alcohol markers!  Anyway, the theme this week is "red, white and blue".  Your project doesn't have to be patriotic, but we want to see these three colors.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Lost Lagoon and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Celebrate 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Crimson Illusion by ching chou kuik from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added silvery glitter to the leaves and Ice White Pearl Pen accents to the toadstools.  I finished my card with a simple bow and a couple of MiC chipboard butterflies.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the gorgeous projects from my teammies, Dawn, Penny and Kathi.  We hope you will play along this week!  We have a new sponsor for our challenges this month.  For the month of July, we are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps, who are offering the randomly-selected winner 2 digis of their choice from the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy shop.  Wendy has some adorable digis, so be sure to check it out.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenge #13 (patriotic colors: I used red, white and blue)
One Sweet Challenge July (red, white and blue)
Party Time Tuesdays #179 (red, white and blue)
A Creative Romance (colors of your national flag; mine are red, white and blue)

Have a great day and see you soon!


  1. Awesome card, Carla, in every way. I love it! Yes, it is beautiful here in my part of AL, too. Have a fun day.

  2. Lovely card and I really like the different shade of red and blue you went with here. I see you are also a master at pearl drops each one being the same exact size as the next. I do hope you are enjoying your day. We are awaiting much rain, but it will help with the lawns and gardens.

  3. This is so beautiful, Carla! I love your coloring, the image is gorgeous, and the palette & DP & bow are really dreamy-looking! :^)
    Hugs, Penny
    Have a great 4th of July weekend!
