Good morning!

A new Outlawz Color Challenge has started. You can check it out HERE

This month we have a gorgeous Inspiration photo from Angela.

While I have way more white accents than the photo I did pull in the blues along with the browns and caramel plus I went with the coffee theme!

I colored the bird with an ink pad and a blender pen then added a bit of clear Pop of Color to the for some shiny!
