The Outlawz Alcohol Markers Anything Goes/Christmas Twist Challenge

I cannot believe it is already the end of the month! What happened to June? It just up and disappeared. And you know what that means. Yup, it's almost July. Time for Penny to turn 65. Really? Who did that to me? I will be officially O.L.D.

But, for now, I am still a mere 64. And I am going to enjoy my last few days of middle age. I am even going out for dinner Saturday night with our dinner club. We certainly don't go out to eat much now that Gary is retired. And that's probably a good thing. After all, he is a good cook, and we have been having some really yummy meals at home...

Back to our challenge, which is an easy one, right? I guess I'd best mention that our sponsor for this month is Delicious Doodles, home of really fabulous images. And I used mine for this challenge. Teri will be awarding our randomly-selected participant 4 digis. Lucky winner! So be sure to get your entries in this week!

I used Delicious Doodles Mistletoe Kiss this Friday, as I wanted to make another Christmas card for this year. She is a gorgeous image, and was really fun to color. I think Teri's images would all be great to color, so do stop by her shop and check them out. I printed the image on X-Press It BC and colored her with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: Y21, YR23, E15, E18
Eyes: B32, B34
Fur: E53, E55, E57
Berries: R27, TTR2, TTR1
Leaves: YG63, YG67, TTG43

I added Stickles Xmas Red to her fingernails, which I wish I hadn't done, but oh, well...

My DP is from the Bazzill Believe collection. It was Zutterized and paired with Stampin' Up CS. Then I die-cut four corner pieces using the Cheery Lynn Holly Corner die. And that's it for this card. Pretty CAS for me, huh?

Please check out the beautiful pieces done by my talented teammates: Carla, Dawn, and Kathi. And then won't you join us? You can use any brand of alcohol markers on your images. We'd love for you to play along!

Have a great weekend!
