Soul that Lives Within

This card is the Freebie Progressive November Challenge at The Outlawz using the image from SLS Lines (an image on the Dark Side.)  Go to The Outlawz and check out the many creative cards for this image and you still have until the end of November to be an entrant.

The Outlawz Challenge Rules:  SLS Lines Image.  Not sure all our members that enjoy 'dark' will love this image and everyone that has never tried 'dark' it will add to your repertoire!  Given the option if you opt to not submit a design for this image, you can notify The Outlawz to let them know and you will still be eligible for next month's freebies.  

I wasn't sure whether I was going to participate in this challenge, but the challenge side of me decided I could do this.  While going through my stash to find appropriate paper and stamps, I came across the Adult Coloring Book I had purchased in Washington, D.C. last month when my daughter and I went back East.  I had planned to do some coloring on our air flight return to Arizona; however, forgot to pack my ShinHan pens in my carry-on.  Looking through the book I found a coloring page I would enjoy and could see it as the background of my card.  

After coloring the background, I then printed and colored the 'dark' image with some of the same colors of the background, fussy-cut and added a black panel to the back of the image.  Fussy-cut the background paper on the right-hand side to bring in some black from the card frame.  Found this sentiment I thought went well.  Glued the coloring page to the black panel, then used 3D Thin Foam Tape for the image, and 3D Regular Foam Tape for the Sentiment.  And yes, now I can add interpretation of the 'dark' to my repertoire.  

TRIVIA:  In this coloring page there are (4) smaller areas hidden in the colors where I didn't color them and they remain white.  Can you spot these?  They are all to the right of the 'dark' image, but not the large obvious areas of white.  You may have to enlarge picture to find them. If you find them let me know in comments by giving me the colors on each side of the white area.  The winner, first one to identify the correct white areas, can have this card or another card of their choice if still in my stock.  Good Luck.  Come back on December 5, 2015 to see if you're a Winner.

Hi Suzanne. I tracked you backwards to see your blog too. I had to laugh at the banner about being a "challenge addict". I do way too many for my Zentangle, art journaling, and cards. LOL! Your "different" image turned out really cool! Love all the exploding colors!

Glad to see you finished your card and got it posted. The required image is over the top for me, but I like that you used bright colors on your card and the created the knock-out background design! Good work, Sue.

Still white... pupils in each eye and the skull and crossbones [does that count as four??]
BTW - love the juxtaposition of "dark" & bright!

Ginny, thanks so much for playing...but unfortunately the image is not a part of the coloring page. I added "they are all to the right of the dark image" in the Trivia content to clarify the coloring page. Try again you may be a winner.
