Cinco de Mayo Challenge!

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is " Cinco de Mayo (Mexican flag colors, margaritas, Mexican culture, food)".  My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Karen, Vannessa, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You can use any coloring medium you like, just as long as you color! 

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

I opted to use margaritas and the Mexican flag colors for my card, with  Martini Girl from the Frou Frou collection by The Crafter's Companion.

Martini Girl was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Craft/Tsukineko) onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Clear Gelly Glaze pen (Sakura) was used to add dimension and shine to the margarita glasses, Martini Girl's shoes, and her pearls. Chalk pencil was used to add a touch of blush to her cheeks.

The patterned papers are from older collections by Fancy Pants, Bo-Bunny, and Authentique and were layered according to a sketch from Papertake weekly. "Cheers" was die-cut from green cardstock using the ever-useful Cheers die (Elizabeth Craft Designs.

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