Mix it up!

Hello and Happy Friday to all!!

First up today is the Copics/promarkers challenge at The Outlawz and we're making it real easy for you this week :) We want you to do something, anything you like, with your favourite combination of alcohol markers........ what are the colours you reach for more that anything else? That's got to be an easy one for you to do on a Friday, am I right?

We're being sponsored for our June challenges by the wonderful Krista Smith of Saturated Canary so there's a fab incentive to join in and play along :) I made my card with the so very cute Vicky the Viking digi (this was my suggestion for a new digi when Krista asked for some ideas a while back and mine was one of the ones picked - yay!). I coloured her with some browns and my go-to copic blues which are B000, B00, B14 and B12, added a small square of burlap, some scrabble letters, twine and punched flowers with some kraft cardstock and dp and there you have it -

I would like to enter her into the current Saturated Canary challenge (Anything goes) as well as the Aud Sentiments challenge ( sentiment for a child's birthday), Paper Craft Bliss (hand-coloured image) and Willow Sketchie (fave colour combo).

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to The Outlawz to check out the rest of the brilliantly talented DT's work :)

The burlap adds such a nice textural touch.

This is such a great card Dawn. A viking is not the easiest thing to create a them with but you sure did a great job. Love the touch of burlap and those Scrabble tiles. Hugs!
