Tim Times Ten Grand Give-A-Way Challenge: Day Five

Good Morning Ladies,
It is day 5 of the http://www.stampindymonz.com/2011_05_01_archive.html over at Stampin' Dymonz. Click on the link and check it out.
The day five challenge requirement is to create a Card Tag. It must be created with one sheet of cardstock, scored and folded.  On your card, you must have an image that you colored by hand. You don't have to use Copics if you do not own them; however, some type of craft markers are a requirement for this challenge. Your coloring should be use at least 2 different colors and you should shade your image to the best of your ability. You must mat your image with a mat that has been distressed by sanding.
Here is my version of this challenge....

 This is the front of my tag card. I cut the tag card out of black cardstock.I stamped the parrot image using memento black, I colorized him with 6 different colors of copic markers. I stamped the word wild using tim holtz distressed ink in vintage photo. I added a pair of metal wings from tim holtz odornment charms. I then inked the edge of the parrot panel with tim holtz distressed ink in broken china. I layered this panel to a panel of cordenations paper from the chocolate collection, that I distress with the tim holtz sanding block. I attached this to my tag card. The ties at the top are ribbon.
 Since I made my tag card out of black cardstock I added a white panel on the inside for a personal message. On the white panel I stamped birds on a wire stamp from the tim holtz clear stamp set Life's Possibilities.
I have not had my copics out for such a long time...so this was a challenge. My first two attempts went into the trash. I changed stamps and was much happier.
Can't wait for tomorrow's challenge!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
