Lots of Layers with Tammy's Scrapin Corner morning everyone!! Today we have Lots of Layers over at Tammy's Scrapin Corner. I didn't use the best image to show a lot of layers LOL Even though I got a bunch of layers in there, but I LOVE this image. I had planned on using my normal decoupage with it and that would have given me more layers, but decided on coloring it with my Prismacolor pencils. I colored one with the pencils only and the other I used Gamsol with my pencils. It was fun! Here are the two cards:

Card Not Using Gamsol:
So, with this one I just colored, shaded, etc with the colored pencils. I used yellow, icicle and purple Stickles. I also used White Opal Liquid Pearls for different spots of white. I used one of my edge punches for the green and blue layers. I added the doily die cuts that I just won from a challenge. They are from My Craft Spot. I added glass beads around the doily cuts and I added gems to the bottom.

For the second card, I used all the same items, but instead of just using the Prismacolor Pencils, I used Gamsol when coloring the image. I used the pencils around the edge and used the Gamsol which melts the pencil and spreads it out. I think it really looks good. Here is that card:

I love Bugaboo images :)  And their scenes are no exception. So that is it for me this week :)  I can't wait to see all of your layers!!

Alright... here's hoping for a better week this week.. I think I'm less emotional LOL I feel better!! And Joann .. I hope you are feeling better.. sorry you have been so sick!! And Tammy and Marc... you too!! Feel better!! I'm going to do my best to get to everyone this week!! I really need some me time!! LOL Not enough hours in the day. This having to work full time stinks! ;)

Alright.. have a great week everyone!!!
