Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  The weather has improved dramatically here and we are back into the 60s, at least during the day.  It's still cold at night, but that's OK.  We may even get some much-needed rain on Sunday, which is fine as long as it doesn't come with the severe thunderstorms that are predicted. Anyway, I've got a busy day so I will get on with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the overall color palette on your project.  And don't forget, you can use any coloring medium you'd like as long as you have a hand-colored image.

Here is the color inspiration photo, courtesy of Design Seeds:

And here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Lost Lagoon and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste "Charm" 6x6 pad.  The image is Aurora Daisy from The East Wind, our sponsor for November.  The DT was generously provided with a digi to use and this is the one I chose.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few opaque gems is aqua and deep purple finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the fab creations from my teammies, Kathi, Penny, Laine and Dawn.  We hope you will play along this week!  Our sponsor for November is The East Wind, who are offering the lucky winner 3 digis of their choice from the The East Wind Etsy shop.  Check out Unky's fun images!  You will definitely want to be in the running for this prize!
