The Outlawz Alcohol Markers 'Inspired by a Song, Book, or Movie Title' Challenge

My post header is a real mouthful, isn't it? But a fun challenge, for sure! There were so many choices for this challenge, but I narrowed it down to a book/tv series title, A Game of Thrones. And I decided to use a Rick St. Dennis digi, Mother of Dragons, for my image.

But before I get to my card description, I want to mention that this month we have a new sponsor, Delicious Doodles. The prize for our randomly-selected participant will be 4 digis of his/her choice. Great prize, as there are so many fabulous, unique images to choose from. So be sure to get your entries in this month!

I also want to mention that I have uploaded my images from my vacation, but haven't gone through them yet. With a few hundred to look at, it may be a bit before I do a blog post on Kaua'i. I am still reading like a fiend, and I need to let that run its course. When I come up for air, I will get to my vacation blog post. 

So, for this week, it looks like I went for skin. I actually think Gary was a little shocked when I showed him my finished card. He asked if I was going to give it to him for Valentine's Day next year. I said, sure, if I could remember that long. Which is highly unlikely. 

Anyway, I printed "MOD" on X-Press It BC and colored the image with my Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: Y21, YR23, E15, E18
Eyes: B32, B34
Shoulder Dragon: T2, T4, T6, T8, E02, E08, E09
Lower Dragon: G40, G43, G46, YR21, YR24, YR27
Laces/Thong/Shoes: Spica Pitch Black

I used DP from the Basic Grey Curio collection, Zutterized it, and paired it with Stampin' Up CS. I added some ribbon, pearl pen, Wild Orchid Crafts pin & flowers, and Marianne Designs Decorative Elegance die cuts. And that's all she wrote for this week.

Except to say, that we'd love for you to color up your inspiration with any brand of alcohol markers, make your creation with it, and enter it into our challenge this week! And be sure to check out the beautiful designs by my talented teammates: Carla, Dawn, and Kathi! Looking forward to seeing what inspires you!

  6. Well girlie, seems I've been missing some fantastic art during my hiatus. What a phenomenal creation. Your colouring skills have always been awesome, but you've out done yourself on this one. I'm not back in the saddle yet, but was able to spend a few moments looking around blog land for a moment. I just couldn't take the time to say hello and give you some love. TTYS:)S

  7. You did an amazing job coloring this image, Penny. I am especially fond of how you colored her hair, probably because that is something with which I struggle. Good job.

  8. Penny your colouring is as always just superb, I can just aspire to get to your level. Love the autumn colours. All well with the penguin family even though we are dead bang smack in the middle of winter here in Johannesburg with temperatures in the minus.
