Kissing Couple...and some exciting news :)

Hello everyone...I have some very exciting news.....drum roll :)....I have managed to get a place on the DT for the Copic group at The Outlawz....YAY...doin' the happy dance right now :) :) :)  This has been a very trying week for me, so this news has brightened me up no-end!!  I'm on my lovely friend Tammy's team...a lot to live up to...her work is truly awesome!  Come on over and join in the fun :)
Edited to add:  The Copic challenge is now the COPIC/PROMARKER Challenge...YAY...this means all our talented Promarker artists can come play with us too :)

Here's a card I made to enter into 3 of the challenges at The Outlawz : Tuesday Colour Challenge - Red, Pink & White, Wednesday Challenge - Sketch, Friday Copic Challenge - Show me some red love.  I was aiming to do a birthday card and put it in the Monday Birthday Challenge but couldn't decide on an image to colour in reds!!!!

This really was a BIG challenge for me as red & pink aren't my favourite colours...or colour combo...but that's the whole idea of stretch you and push you out of your comfort zone :)

I've used the Val & Vinnie digi stamp from Michelle Perkett, available in her Etsy store HERE.  Michelle has some gorgeous images...well worth a visit to her store :)  I have a rather large collection of them lol!  I've had this one for a-a-ages but it has just been sitting waiting for me to do something with it (along with a 'few' others!)

Here's a close up of the cute couple:

Now that I see the card finished I realise that by leaving his pants white they now look a lot like PJ pants will just have to imagine she's giving him his good morning kiss!!!!

Colouring with reds isn't my fave pastime...they bleed so easily...and why on earth I chose such a delicate image to use them on is beyond me...silly me :)  Anyhow, I didn't do anything too drastic with the bleeding...phew!

Thanks for looking...have a wonderful day :)

Super cute card - you've worked those pinks & reds beautifully & I love the fact that Vinnie is possibly sporting his PJs!
