Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  I am out of town again for a couple of days, so I have another pre-scheduled post today.  I am sharing my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  This week we have a color inspiration challenge for you.  You can do anything you'd like with the colors, but please remember to have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is the color inspiration photo that our teammie, Tress, picked:

It's a perfect color palette for fall or Halloween, don't you think?  

Here is my card:

I went the Halloween route and used some fun Halloween patterned paper from K & Co. for the background.  I cut a big spider web with a cut file from Miss Kate Cuttables, then cut it in pieces to add around the border of my card.  The adorable image is Pirate Kai by Mo Manning for Penny Black.  I stamped him on MiC Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  I added a bit of Yellow Stickles to the jack-o-lantern face.  A few plastic spiders in the webs and around the image finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
