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!!

Crafting When We Can Personalize It!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday. Today we have a new Challenge over at Crafting When We Can. The theme for this week is to Personalize your card by adding a name. I decided to make a card for my oldest daughter since she will be finishing up her first year of college in another week and coming home for the summer. I hope she will like it!

I used Katniss Girl On Fire from Sassy Studio Designs. I colored her with Copic. I added blooms and gems and a swirl of gems. The dies are from Spellbinders. This was a fun image to color up and I think she turned out pretty nice.

Dress - B00, B12, B14, B16, YR02, YR04, YR07
Skin - E00, E01, E11, R20

I'm really proud of her making it through her first year of college and being out on her own. I hope she knows that.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! We will be heading off to church soon. It has been a lazy weekend so far and I hope it stays that way LOL I needed some down time, quiet time. I had a really stressful week last week and I have no idea what the heck was wrong with me LOL Tired? Hormonal? LOL Who knows! Just one of those weeks and I'm really glad it is over! hehehe  On to a new week and may it be much better! *hugs* to all of you!!

    April DT Day at Meljen's

    Good morning everyone! Today is my special DT Day at Meljen's. Our theme this month is Anything Goes! I was able to use one of my favorite images ... Little Hummingbird. I think this Little Hummingbird is the CUTEST I have ever seen and I couldn't wait to make something out of it :)  So, here is my card:

    I hope you enjoy!!! I used all scraps for this card. The die at the bottom is a Memory Box die and the leaves on the side are the cutouts from that. They were perfect.. I couldn't resist using them! I added some Prima flowers. The two square dies are Spellbinders. I used a bottlecap which I added a piece of the paper, added the glitter around the edge and covered it with Diamond Glaze. I added gems. I added some glitter to the hummingbird too. He's so cute!! He makes me think of Spring!! I just love this little guy. The "What's Up" Stamp is Paper Smooches. And I colored the image with Copic.
