Some scholarly appreciation.

Hello all!
               Fabulous Friday is here once again and so begins a new challenge at The Outlawz for the alcohol markers DT.  Now for those of you who are not familiar with alcohol markers, there are a number of different brands out there, all of which contain alcohol-based dye ink which have special properties: they allow you blend colours together without tearing up your paper as you might with a water-based ink.  I have only ever used Copics as I like the fact that they are refillable - I would love to hear anyone's thoughts on any other brands.
    So, not a DT that drinks alcohol whilst colouring - well, I'm not admitting to anything anyway!

    The theme this week is Graduation/school's out but I did go the other way with mine and did a 'back to school' card.  We're a very flexible group when it comes down to it - all we insist upon is that you use alcohol markers and then you can interpret the theme in your own way :)
               For my card I used a digi from Make It Crafty and some inspiration from this very creative lady - Alice's Little Wonderland .  You can see some wonderful colouring and some gorgeous CAS cards here so it's well worth a visit!



I would like to enter this into the challenges at My Heart Pieces , Through the Craftroom Door , Addicted to Stamps and More , Penny's Paper Crafty , Charisma Cardz and Bearly Mine.





Thanks so much for stopping by !

I wonder if Alice know how inspiring she is to people trying to figure out CAS. I find myself going to her blog over and over. You obviously found something to inspire you there and turned out a wonderful card yourself. Way to go Dawn! Hugs!
