Copic/ProMarker Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi there!  I'm back!  Hope you had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  I'm thinking of all my friends and family in the Northeast and hoping you all stay safe from the impending storm.  Sounds like it will be a doozy!  I was living in Boston during the blizzard of '78 and that storm comes in second to being the worst snowstorm in the city's history.  This one might set a new record.  Yikes!  Anyway, I'm here to share my DT card for this week's Copic/ProMarker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "Valentines or Love".  Very original, yes?

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Primrose Petals and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic 6x6 pad.  In the background is a heart doily from the Silhouette store cut with my Cameo.  My sweet image is Canary Love from Saturated Canary.  Krista generously shared her as a freebie awhile back, but you can find her in the store now.   I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics. I added Stickles here and there, some Mint Green Liquid Pearls to her earrings and buttons and Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen dots around the image.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I shaded it with my Copics.  I added three diecut hearts and three Wild Orchid Crafts roses to finish my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Copic/ProMarker Challenge and see what the rest of the DT has created for your inspiration!  We hope you will play along this week!  The February challenges are being sponsored by "yours truly".  One randomly-selected participant in this month's challenges will win a $15 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil.  There are also lots of monthly site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!

  9. This one is a stunner Carla! I particularly love the little pearls that surround her.
    I remember that storm of 78 very well too. We lived in the country at the time and were stranded for three days because of a 15 foot snow drift that blocked the entrance to our road. They needed a road grader to plow it out and then it was like you were in a canyon after that. We are getting a far dump where I live at this very moment as well, but nothing like that I hope! Welcome back :)S
