June Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz!

June is my favorite month of the year!  The weather here in Iowa is usually fantastic and there are so many things to do to have fun. Including taking part in the Outlawz June Progressive Freebie Challenge!

Our image this month has been provided by Beccy Muir of Beccy's Place. And she actually is giving the black and white version of Gran's Chair Summer and the colored version. AND, not only that, she is offering a prize to our random winner from all of the June entries!! Thanks, Beccy, that is just wonderful!!

Here is my card using Beccy's image, Gran's Chair Summer.

I colored the image with Copic markers and then layered it onto some preprinted paper by Bo Bunny. And I layered that on top of some pretty floral designer paper. I added some premade paper flowers and my card was done in about 10 minutes! 


We had a great response for our May challenge.  If you took part in this progressive challenge in May, you will automatically receive by email the June image. If you didn't take part but want to, it is easy to join the fun.

First, you must be a member of the Outlawz. If you aren't a member, just drop by and ask to join. After your request is approved, you can join the Progressive Challenge or any of our other seven challenges.

Next, you will need to register to play. Do this by sending an email to the address on the challenge page with your name and email address and an email will be sent to you.
The rules are very simple: join the challenge, join the progressive/freebie group, send us an email to register and then enter a project made with the image supplied before 6:00 p.m. EST on the last day of the month and you will automatically get the next image. If for any reason you don’t get your project made and you would like to rejoin us, you can buy the image of the month from the sponsor's store and as long as you enter it before the end of the month you will get the next one free and you will then get them automatically each month you enter a project.
Please do not add your image to Pinterest, or your blog or anywhere it can be copied from without a watermark. You can not share these images with anyone – if your friends or family want them send them HERE to join in and get their image or if they don’t want to join the challenge please send them to the sponsor's store to purchase the image.
When you have made your project please place it onto the challenge page for June, enter it into the Gallery (use the tag PF19 for the June challenge) and the June Inlinkz to be entered into the draw for the site wide prizes from our other wonderful sponsors – check out the Outlawz side bar for this month’s prizes!

I hope you will check out this challenge and see what my teammates have come up with!! Great fun!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  1. LOVE this Darcy! Your sentiment is perfect...we all need to remember this! I love how you distressed the banner and how you did those die cuts! Perfect for this garden chair image!

    1. Thanks, Janet! I can't take credit for distressing the banner or die cuts. It was part of the Bo Bunny paper!

  2. Just gorgeous, Darcy. Beautiful coloring and nice layering. I'm with Janet. We must remember to believe in ourselves!


Thanks for leaving a message! It is very much appreciated! I read each and every one!
