Thanks and Anything Goes

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is "Anything Goes" with an optional Christmas/Holiday twist. My Outlawz Coloring Challenge Teammates, Carla, Penny, Laine, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You can use any color medium you like, just as long as you color! 

Our March sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner four digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

The Protector was resized in Photo Elements and printed out onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer. After checking Google Images to learn about foxes, the wonderful scene was colored with Copic markers. The Protector's cheeks received a wee bit of blush courtesy of a pink chalk pencil. A beige chalk pencil was also used to add a little shading to the sides of her face, her nose, and her neck.

The image panel was die-cut using one of the dies from Straight Rectangle Multi-Frames die set (Nellie Snellen).

The design of the card was inspired by a sketch from Try Stamping on a Tuesday, though I had to alter it a bit to make it work with the The Protector. The patterned papers are from the French Country 6x6 pad (Graphic 45). The fishtails are from the Fishtail Stax (Die-namics). Most of the layers were edged with Black Soot Distress ink. The "Thanks" die (Elizabeth Craft Designs) was used as my sentiment, especially since one can always use thank you cards!

Here's the sketch so you can see how I did.

Thank you for visiting today.
