The Pixie Cottage Wednesday Challenge - Coloring

Hello friends and welcome to another 'Upon a Wednesday Challenge' from the Pixie Cottage! It is my second Wednesday today as a guests designer for The Pixie Cottage. This week we want you to use your favorite coloring technique and also have a sketch for you if you like using sketches! You can use both, the technique and the sketch or either one.

For my GDT card I used Pepe Le Penguin as Le Chef by Alisa Ramirez. And as I have actually 3 favorite coloring methods (Copics, Distress Inks and Pencils) I used two of them on my  image. I colored  Pepe using pencils and OMS and also did some Copic airbrushing. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Birthday Letter Seals. DP is from Basic Grey's Marakesh collection. Flowers ribbon and lace is from my stash. I used Spellbinder dies, EK Sucess punch and a Marianne Design swirly leaf die. I cut the swirly leaves out using orqange CS and then colored the tips using the Copic airbrush system and a little darker orange. For a final touch I added some fine glitter "Fire Opal" from Martha Stewart.

I also decorated the inside with matching papers and added a the swirly leaves again. They are fabulous I just love all the Marianne Design dies.

I made this card for a friends birthday and I hope she likes it. It's on the way to it's destination right now. I also used this weeks sketch at Friday's Sketchers.
