Hello Friend

We have another great challenge waiting for you at Tuesday's Color Challenge on The Outlawz Challenge Blog! Wait until you see these gorgeous colors.

Our sponsor for the month of March is Sweet Pea Stamps. They sell both digital and rubber stamps, with a wide assortment to choose from. Please go check them out.


Here is the card I made using Lisa Victoria's Dragon Luck image. Isn't this adorable? I just love that little lady bug landing on his nose.

For the background, I used white card stock and five inks from Stampin' Up! (from top - rich razzleberry, orchid opulance, melon mambo, daffodil delight, and green galore). I printed the dragon image onto white card stock and colored him using both Copic and Spectrum Noir markers (dragon - CG3, YG06; eyes - PL3; ladybug - R21, R24, R27; flower - RV23, RV25, YG07). The frame is a cut file from Silhouette of America (Flourish Frame Design #3389). It was cut using purple card stock from Recollections (there is no color listed). The sentiment was typed on my computer using Comic Sans font. I used a label punch from Stampin' Up! and then used daffodil delight ink to distress it.  I added lime green goosebump crystals in the corners to finish it off.

I really hope you get a chance to play along with us this week. These are some really awesome colors to work with.
