Through the Purple Haze Challenges #20

Another new challenge at Through the Purple Haze Challenges!

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges

This week we have two sponsors, Encino Stamps and MMCS.  My Mum's Craft Shop will give a prize of  £10 coupon and Encino Stamps will have prizes for the Top 3.

The Design Team B all used images from Encino Stamps and we were also to use something old from our stash. My image is Gerlinde the tortoise and my "something old" is the red buttons I put in the four corners. I don't use buttons very often, don't know why, they really add a lot to a card!

My papers are from my stash and so are the buttons. I colored my image with Copic Markers.
Turtle: YG03,YG67, YG00, YG02
Red Bow: R39, R46, R43
Hearts on Shell: R43
Eyes: E34
Background: RV0000

I am taking an online background class from Marie Gamber. It is called Creative Backgrounds with Marie and it can be found at Color Me Creative. I used one of her techniques for my background that is very subltle. If you want to add more pizazz to your colored images, her background class is simply a must!!!  Here's a closeup view! 

I'm also putting my card in these challenges!
Color Me Creative - Anything Goes
Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenge - Universal Children's Day
