The Outlawz/Promarkers Challenge

Happy Friday everyone!  It’s a holiday here in Quebec, so a nice long week-end for us.  This week on The Outlawz Challenges site, it’s everyone’s favourite “Anything Goes!  So as long as you use either Copics or Promarkers or even both, the sky’s the limit!

                  Fabiana (2)

This week I’ve used a digital image I  have had for ages, and all I know is the image is called “Fabiana”.  I wish I knew from where she came!  If you have any idea please let me know! 

I’ve used Copics to color the image.   You may have noticed that most of my cards have been purples and greens lately, why you ask?  Well, due to a postal strike here in Canada, my copics and refills are having a holiday, laying about in some postal facility!  Since I can only get copics online, I am stuck until the strike is over.  Good thing I like purple and green.

I’ve made a “Cross-Over” card, and you can find the tutorial here, on the Top Tip Tuesday challenge blog.  They are very easy to do, and I love that they have a pocket.  The designer paper is from a Martha Stewart paper pad.  I’ve used the round and oval Spellbinder dies to layer the image.  Since every fairy deserves a little sparkle, I’ve added some crystal stickles to the wings.  I’ve kept the card very plain, as I wanted the image to be the focal point.


This is a picture of the insert.  I’ve made a tag, or you could use it as a book mark.  The sentiment is a freebie from Create With TLC.

So, don’t forget to head on over to The Outlawz, they have lots of challenges, one each day all running weekly. and some pretty fabulous prizes for each month.  Good luck!
