Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  I've been quite busy this week, but I'm hoping things will slow down a little over the weekend.  I am here today with my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is " at the beach/pool".  Easy, right?  Remember that we've opened the challenge to any coloring medium, but you must still have a colored image on your project.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Lost Lagoon and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Paradise Beach 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Lounging Around by Sassy Studio Designs.  It was generously offered as a Friday Freebie a couple of years ago on the now defunct Paper Craft Planet.  There is a newer version with a similar look currently available in the shop.  It's called Lounging Around Sassy.  Anyway, I printed the image on Hammermill cardstock and colored it with my Copics.  I added some polka dots with my Sharpie White Paint Pen and a little flower design to the cushion on the chair.  I also added in a beach, ocean and sky with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A couple of 3D sand dollar stickers finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
