Blend Of The Week #5 {Dark Ice Grey}

So I missed posting my Blend of the Week last week. Like every other family we have been busy getting ready for back to school. The kids start on Monday and I think and hope we have everything we need! 

The Blend of the week this week is Dark Ice Grey. This time I used it color the Birthday Elephant image from Drawn Together. 


The color blend from darkest to lightest is IG7 IG5 IG4 IG3 

This is a great grey blend that can be used for lots of different things. 

Have a great day!


Hello Teacher Card


It's that time of year again. The kids are going back to school! I have 2 starting Preschool this year, and my son will be going into the 4th grade. 

I always make a little gift for the teacher at the beginning of the school year, and this year I had 4 teachers to make gifts for! (There are 2 Pre-K teachers). 

This is the card I made for one of the Pre-K teachers. I also made her a set of note cards - I'll be posting those next week. 

On this card I used Teacher's Pet Tia from Some Odd Girl. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers (palette below) and 3D decopaged her. I cut the apple on my Silhouette machine and the "hello" was a die-cut. I added Glossy Accents and stickles to the apples and Glossy Accents to the sentiment, I love how the embellishments turned out on this. 

Here is the pin-able color palette:


*The correct name of this image is Teacher's Pet Tia*

Lots of Layers with Crafty Gals Corner

This week the challenge is Lots of Layers!

Our sponsors this week is:

Flat Friends Boutique



On my card I used the image called Under the Weather from Flat Friends.


I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers (palette below) and used some papers from my stash to make the layers. I also used a piece of  the white iridescent vellum from the Paper Temptress. It is so pretty in real life, couldn't get a great photo of it though.

Weird and Whimsical Challenge at Lacy Sunshine


The current challenge at Lacy Sunshine is "Weird and Whimsical", I thought that might be the perfect time to try out some more Mixed Media. 

I used the image "Belinda Unicorn Girl". I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers. I added some Glossy Accents to her unicorn horn. On the background I used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. Then I used a stencil and some clear gloss gel to add some texture. Then I added some more sprays. The sprays easily wipe off the gloss gel so the green was still visible where I had stenciled. I finished it off with a stamp from Unity Stamp Company, 

Here are some more pictures of the background I created. 




I will be entering this project in the Weird and Whimsical challenge at Lacy Sunshine
