Copic/ProMarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you're ready for a fun weekend!  The weather sure has been a mixed bag this week, but at least it's not snowing - lol!  I'm here, as usual on Fridays, to share my DT card for this week's Copic/ProMarker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  This week's theme is "food/cooking".  You can interpret this as you wish, but you must have coloring with alcohol markers on your project.  Any brand is fine.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Basic Black and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two Rosy 6x6 pad.  The fun image is a digi called Chef  from Kenny K. Downloads.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I cut out the image and black mat with my Cameo and popped it up on foam tape over a frame of Spellbinders Lacey and Classic Circle dies.  I also used a SU border punch for the horizontal panel. The sentiment is from Sharon at A Piece of Heart.  She generously shared it as a freebie last summer.   A diecut dimensional sticker (pot holders) and a couple of black gems finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/ProMarker Challenge and check out the yummy creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will be inspired to play along with us!  This month's challenges are being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.  One randomly-selected participant in our April challenges will win 5 digistamps of their choice from the Whimsy Stamps store!  How good is that?  There are also lots of fabulous monthly site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!
