Copic/ProMarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  The weekend is nearly here and for those in the US, it's Memorial Day weekend with an extra day off!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend! I've got a lot going on today, so I'll make my post brief.  I am here to share my DT card for this week's Copic/ProMarker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "one layer cards".  We want to see images colored on the card base or no more than one layer above the card base.  Don't forget that there must be coloring with alcohol markers (any brand).

Here is my card:

This was a really hard challenge for me!  As you know, I love my patterned papers and layers and I rarely go the CAS route with my cards.  The image and sentiment are from the Write, Paint, Create set by 2 Cute Ink for Whimsy Stamps.  Heidi, from 2 Cute Ink, is sponsoring our challenges for the month of May.  I stamped the image and sentiment directly on the card base of XPress-It Card and colored the image with my Copics. I added some Fruit Punch Stickles to the pool of paint and tip of the paintbrush for a little sparkle.  That is it!  Clean and simple - lol!

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/ProMarker Challenge and check out the fantastic CAS creations from the rest of the DT!  They do this style far better than me, as you will see!  We hope you will play along!  As I mentioned, our May challenges are being sponsored by 2 Cute Ink.  One randomly-selected participant in this month's challenges will win three digistamps of their choice from Heidi's 2 Cute Ink store.  There are also lots of site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!

I am entering my card in the following challenge:
Sentimental Sundays #155 (clean and simple with a sentiment on front)

Have a great day and weekend and see you soon!
