Crafter's Companion and Designed to Color are teaming up!

Crafter's Companion is sponsoring the Designed to Color Anything Goes challenge this week!.  All you need to do to join in is to color an image and link it up to the Designed to Color blog.  Make sure to check out all the wonderful projects there for inspiration.

I used this fabulous stamp from the Frou Frou Never Too Early stamp set for my card.  I also used Collall's Tacky Glue for adhere all my paper and embellishments.  It's very tacky and quick drying.

Here's how I colored this fabulous stamp with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  First, I used TN1 and TN2 to color the bar fixture.  I used some random dark streaks of TN2 along the top and bottom of it, to give it a bit of a distressed look.

Then I colored the woman's beads, shoes, and the roses with CR6 AND CR8.  The leaves and martini olive were colored with DG1 and DG2.  To color the glass, I used EB1.

To darken the woman's dress, I colored it with IG2, IG3, AND IG5.  I used these colors for her headdress, as well.  Her skin tones were colored with FS1 and FS3.

Lastly, I colored the lady's umbrella with BT1, BT2, and BT4 and the bar chair and vase with HB1 and HB2.

To complete my card, I added a few flowers, ribbon, and the sentiment "Keep calm & drink on" from the stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day!
