The Outlawz Alcohol Markers Color Inspiration Challenge/Ron & Merrilyn's Anniversary Card

Another Friday, so it is time for another AM challenge. This month we are sponsored by our new sponsor, Ditzie Digi Design. And there will be 3 digis awarded for 1st prize; 2 digis awarded for 2nd prize; and 1 digi awarded for third prize. All prizes will be randomly-selected from May's participants. So be sure to get your entries in this month!

This week we have another color inspiration. I had made this card last month for my sister-and-brother-in-law's anniversary. It just so happened that I had hit most of the colors in the inspiration, so I saved this card for this challenge. (Well, I saved the image; the card I actually gave to Merrilyn and Ron in April.)

My image is Make It Crafty Flirty Seniors, which I printed on X-Press It BC and colored with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Her Hair: E21, E25, E29
His Hair: E31, E35, E37
Suit/Her Shoes: T2, T4, T6
His Shoes: BG70, BG72, BG75
Trim/Apron/Shirt/Newspaper: E40, E41, E42
Hat/Dress/Tie: BG70, BG72
Blanket: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28
Chairs: YR21, YR23, YR27
Shadow: T0, T2

I added Cream Pearl Pen to the background. My DP is from the October Afternoon Travel Girl collection; both it and the image were Zutterized and paired with Stampin' Up CS. A bit of lace and cheesecloth were used, along with some baker's twine and a Prima Vintage Domino Trinket. I finished the card with some Stampin' Up pearls and a sentiment, (created with a sentiment from the Whimsy Fun Life Tickets 2 collection and a Whimsy ticket die).

That's it for this week. Be sure to check out the wonderful creations by my talented teammates, Carla, Dawn, and Kathi. Then use your alcohol markers, (any brand), and color up an image for your creation in our challenge!

Have a great weekend!
