The colors of Bliss!

This week is a color challenge at Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenges, which is now a coloring challenge! You can use alcohol markers, other markers, colored pencils, and any other coloring medium. The only requirement is that you color an open line image!

August's sponsor for the Outlawz Friday's Coloring Challenges is Bombshell Stamps. The winner of this month's challenge will win his or her choice of a digital set of stamps.

Here's the color palette from Design Seeds:
You should definitely enter this color challenge and should also visit my Outlawz Coloring Challenge Teamies blogs for inspiration! Carla, Dawn, and Penny are seriously talented!

Here's my card, featuring Bliss, one of the four beautiful new fairy stamps in SCACD's Zen Beauties set.

Bliss was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. C00, C0, C1, custom-blended Less than B60, and B60 Copic markers were used to create the cloudy sky behind her. Silver Copic Spica glitter pen was used to add trails of glitter issuing from her fingers and feet, as well as lines of glitter on her wings.

Patterned cardstock from Club Scrap was die-cut with a Decorative Labels Eight Nestabilities die from Spellbinders. This was then die-cut with a Nestabities Labels Eight die to create a frame. The same die  was used to die-cut her image panel, which was adhered inside the decorative frame. This frame was adhered to patterned paper from My Minds Eye, then matted onto silver glitter paper by DCWV. The matted image panel was adhered to the card front made from the same green patterned cardstock from Club Scrap. Gemstones by Kaiser Craft (for sale at 50% off!) were added to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting today!
