Good Morning Friends,

Beautiful morning this morning where I am, a bit of snow on the ground (just a dusting), fireplace is on and my dog is lying in front of it. Some moments in life are truly peaceful. I am sure that will be it for the day hehe. Soon the dog will be barking, my husband will be cooking, my daughter will be chatting and life continues!

So today at Color Me Creative Challenge we have a new challenge: TEXTURE. As you may know, for these challenges you can use any image but you must color with either alcohol markers or colored pencils. These challenges are a great way to help improve your coloring technique or to just practice it.

So here is some inspiration for texture. This is one of Suzanne Dean's dogs, how cute! Very furry, but you can also use the others such as brick, wood, and any others you can think of.

Our sponsor for this challenge is :

There is also a monthly drawing from all the entries that month to win a Gift Certificate to

So finally here is my creation. I used a combination of a flicking technique and also some colorless blender on a rag to create a bit of texture.

Of course the image is an adorable Stamp Fairy image, Patches. Great image to color because you don't have to possess a lot of marker colors. I used copics:

Bear:  E59, 53, 49, 35
Heart:  R29, R24, R22

I also used some Stickles on the heart to add some sparkle.
I hope you will find the time to come join us in the challenge, I would love to see what you create!

Thanks for popping in, I hope you will leave me a comment so I know you were here.
