Colour inspiration on a Friday

Hello all!
I can't believe another week has shot by and it's time for the Friday challenge with the Alcohol Markers DT at The Outlawz.   This week we're giving you a colour palette as inspiration - we don't ask that you obsessively match each colour but we do ask that you use alcohol markers!
           I chose an image from Emerald Faeries , (so cute) and went for a CAS look with a sprinkle of mixed media by using some torn strips of cardstock,  a stamped background and some punched out flowers, topped with gems.  The pixie was coloured with my Copics - they're definitely my favourite colouring medium as I do love their blending capabilities.


          I would like to enter this into the challenges at Emerald Faeries , 4 Crafty Chicks , As You Like It , Copic Marker Europe , Creative Knockouts and Addicted to Stamps and More.

                                          Thanks for popping in today :)

This is just absolutely delightful with a lovely kind of mixed media feel to it.

OMWord, this is so darling! That image is really precious--love your coloring of it! Love the fab CAS scene you created, too--such a stunning design, Dawn! Love it! :^)

Dawn, Just love your style! Sorry I have not been around. Austin is beautiful this time of year 85 today. I think I'm helping, was able to give them some good ideas that I think will help Georgianna, this is so hard on her and for Bill also, they were so use to going where ever they wanted. Bill was able to fine a Van that will work for Georgianna so that is a plus. So I'm going to be here for a little bet. I do have to say the weather is so much nicer 85 today. I'm not commenting much but they both are sleeping now so thought I would get a little commenting done.
Hugs, Pat

Loving how you used the stamped flowers behind the main image and that you tore paper to create a love scene. Your coloring is amazing and I really love how you did the layout. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing inspiration with us at 4 Crafty Chicks No Pattern Paper Challenge. Have a great day!

Your Spring Fairy is wonderful and so beautifully colored.

I adore your mixed media background. The torn, layered, stampiness are just perfect!
