The Outlawz Friday Coloring "Have a Heart" Challenge/Gary's Valentine's

Hello, hello, hello. I am going to make this very brief, (for me), as my sister, Barbara, is staying with me through today, and I don't want to be rude by spending too much time on the computer writing my blog, as I already have spent an inordinate amount of time working on cards while she has been visiting, and that is rude enough; btw, is this sentence long enough for y'all? Snicker...

Our prize this month, sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps, for our randomly-selected participant, will be four digital images. And they have so many images by wonderful artists! So be sure to get your entries in for a chance at this fabulous prize! All you need to do is to color an image on your project with any coloring medium/media you choose. Get out your markers/pens/pencils/etc., get set, go.....

Our challenge is "Have a Heart", so you need to use a heart somewhere on your projects. I used Sweet Pea Stamps Hot Chocolate Fairy, by Janna Prosvirina, for my image this week. Isn't she too cool? I chose this image for Gary's Valentine, as he has been drinking hot chocolate this winter. Of course, that has pretty much come to a screeching halt, as the weather has warmed up considerably here.

I printed the fairy on X-Press It BC, and colored her with the following Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E15, YR02
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57
Wings: E02, E17, E19, E18, E41, E42, E44, E47, E49
Mug/Chocolate/Cream: T0, T1, T2, T4, E02, E17, E19, E18, E40, E41
Hearts: E43, E44, E49
Dress: E41, E42, E43, E44
Stockings: E41, E42, E43, T0, T1
Background: BG70, BG72

Other details: DP is from My Mind's Eye Honey Cake collection, paired with Stampin' Up CS and Zutterized; tiny staples from Tim Holtz; a border cut with Memory Box Twirled Heart Border. 

So that wraps up this week's Friday edition. I will be back Monday with a new card and more chitchat. In the meantime, please stop by our challenge to see the wonderful inspiration by my talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, and Laine. And please play along with us this week!

Have a great weekend!
