Into the Wild

Happy Weekend.  I am always so happy when the weekend comes around.  I sure do need those 2 days to recoup my energies to face another week at work.  Tonight I decided to work on an image by Sandi Huggett over at The Outlawz!  I love these ladies.  They are just the best bunch.  I really love that Sandi and Anne give us 2 new free digis every 2 weeks that we get to play with.  This time I thought they had me stumped.  The images were of a Jeep and a Loon.  I was having a difficult time coming up with something for either one of those.  But all week I kind of had a Hummer in mind - you know - that HUGE SUV.  With that in mind, I started looking through magazines to see if anything popped out at me.  I picked up the Copic Coloring Guide Level 2: Nature which you can purchase from Annie's Attic.  So in there is a card with a tractor colored with Gray and Green and it has big tires.  All the ingredients I need for my Jeep.  With that inspiration and the MoJo Monday Sketch #23, this is the card I came up with.
As I stated - the image was drawn by Sandi Huggett of The Outlawz for the Creative Freebies Challenge.  I used Stampin Up Mellow Moss (retired) for the card base and the mat of the image.  The DP is the Basic Gray Archaic paper collection as well as the stickers.  The suede tie is from my stash that I picked up some time ago in the Dollar Spot at Target.  Once I figured out the  coloring for the Jeep, it really went together pretty fast.  The Copics I used were C1, C3, B0000, YG61, YG63, Y13, Y18, R14, R27.

I am submitting this card into the following challenges:
