This week's challenge at Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenges is a coloring challenge! Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenges 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!

September's sponsor for the Outlawz Friday's Coloring Challenges is Vera Lane Studios! If you haven't checked these stamps out, you should. They're quirky, whimsical, and fun! Here's some incentive! Janet, the owner of Vera Lane Studios has issued a coupon code for 10% off!

The code is: TRYVERA10

You should definitely enter this challenge and should also visit my Outlawz Coloring Challenge Teamies' blogs for inspiration! Carla, Dawn, Penny, and Laine  are seriously talented!

Here's the color palette from Design Seeds:

Here's my card using the Coffee Girl set by Vera Lane Studios

I reduced both the Coffee Lover Gal and Cup o'Cat digital stamps and positioned them using PhotoElements. The scene was printed onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer, then colored with Copic markers. The image panel and its mat (Kraft Basics by Basic Grey) were die-cut using  dies from one of the Blueprints die sets by Die-namics. The kraft die-cut's edges were lightly distressed, then the image panel was matted with the kraft die-cut, then matted again onto blue cardstock.
Patterned papers by older 6x6 pads by My Mind's Eye were layered according to a sketch over at the Digi Sketch Challenge blog. All edges of the patterned papers were lightly distressed so that the white edges would show. The patterned papers were all matted with blue cardstock, the card was assembled, and then added to a kraft card.
Thanks for visiting today! 

I shall enter this card into the following challenges:


  1. So danged cute, Kathi! Really love the fun image you chose! Wonderful take on the color palette--love your papers. And fabulous coloring, too! :^)
    Hugs, Penny

  2. Hi Kathi. Your card is absolutely lovely, your coloring is really perfect!.. and these images from Janet are so cute indeed. :) I must confess that I remain quite reluctant to use digital images.. Maybe because I love so much my rubber stamps, but also maybe simply because I'm not used to print images on my printer and color them next. I'm afraid of the result! ^^
    Hugs, Coco
