Summer Cool

Our challenge this week at Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenges is Anything Goes with a Christmas/Winter Holiday option.

June's sponsor for the Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenges is Delicious Doodles.  The prize is four digis of the winner's choice from Teri's shop.  She has some amazing digis, so be sure to check it out her shop, then play along with this week's challenge for a chance to win this prize!

Here's my card that uses Delicious Doodles' Mistletoe Kiss.

Mistletoe Kiss was slightly resized in PhotoElements then printed onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer. The image was then colored with Copic markers to match the very old Wassail 6x6 pad by Basic Grey. 

I must admit that I made a rather huge color mistake. I didn't realize that mistletoe berries are white and/or pink white. My confused brain thought they were red. HOLLY berries are red, not mistletoe... Oops. PSA, don't eat mistletoe leaves, they're poisonous.

Anyway, her nails got a touch of Clear Spica Glitter pen and all the miscolored berries and her nails received several coats of Clear Gelly Glaze pen to make 'em shiny and dimensional. 

The sentiment was stamped onto a die-cut and gemstones were used to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting today.   


  1. LOL, Kathi, I colored my berries red, too, thinking I was doing holly. I even added holly die cuts. I totally forgot that she was Mistletoe Kiss until I was done. Egads!!! ;^)
    Love your coloring! Great design, and love the pretty DP you chose, too! Really fabulous card!
    (But you need to add it to the DT page!!)
    Hugs, Penny

  2. OK, I am too tired this morning. I see you added your photo at the bottom of the DT area. My bad.
    And, I forgot to wish you a happy weekend! My worse!
    Hugs again, Me

  3. This turned out gorgeous, Kathi! I like the berries red and didn't give it a thought until you mentioned it! Wonderful coloring! Have a great weekend!
