Colour challenge at The Outlawz

Hello all!
       We're mixing it up a bit for today's challenge with The Outlawz alcohol markers DT and presenting you with a colour challenge!  There's a very pretty colour palette to inspire you along with some fabulous cards from the DT so please go and take a look and then join in.

       I will admit to struggling with this one - my Copics in these colours decided to start drying out on me and I didn't have any refills for them, typical!!  Anyway, I carried on as best I could, using one of my own digis.  He's actually legless in this one (fits in with the alcohol markers anyway!) but don't despair, I'm sure he didn't feel a thing and it fitted in better with the design I had in mind.  I thought that I should use some more of the colour scheme as I hadn't been able to do much with the Copics and after raiding my mid size paper scraps box - don't tell me I'm the only one who sorts their scraps by size, I know there's more of you out there - I came up with a winter holiday scene with very non traditional colours.

      I would like to enter this into the challenges at Divas by Design , ABC Christmas (P is for Polka Dots) , Christmas Cards all year round , Aud Sentiments , C.R.A.F.T and Crimbo Crackers .

Thanks for popping in!

I love how your mind works Dawn, if I haven't said so already! This is totally unique! I love your little snowman image and think that I am going to have to add him to mine snowman stash. I like how you've hidden him behind the gorgeous papers made to look like snow banks, and the dots for falling snow. Awesome creation girlie!

Dawn,, this is a beautiful card, love how you colored the darling snowman. He is so cute, love his arms and hat. Your coloring does not show that the copics are going dry at all. I love this image.

Tracy said...

It's fun and whimsical Dawn. I love his big soft hat. :-) Hugs!

Tress said...

Lol! Totally laughing at the sorting scraps comment! And I'm guilty! I have a box for large and a box for medium. Don't keep the small ones any longer. Btw, your card is adorable!

Penny said...

Fabulous card, Dawn! It probably turned out so darn cute because you were out of ink! Seriously! Great coloring, love the DP scene you created, and love the colors you used for the challenge! :^)
Hugs, Penny

I would of never noticed her did not have legs, I think with the paper and the placement of the image that worked out just fine. Your snowman is so cute and the colors are wonderful. Super nice card.
Hugs, Pat
