Neenah Supersmooth Ivory. This paper is great to use for colored pencils. The accent for the main image is Basis Green. The layer that everything is attached to is Basis Light Green. The lattice is done in a deep purple that has a wonderful glitter look (sorry the picture didn't pick that up --- the picture does however show the great deep purple color). This cardstock is called Violet Mica Metallic. The Violet Mica Metallic is one of the new papers at Paper Temptress. The sketch for this card actually came from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week. I am trying my hand on doing stamping that looks like water coloring. I colored the stamp with markers. I did each color separately and used a stamp positioner to keep the image intact. I stamped on water color paper and once stamped softened the lines with water and a water color brush. I need to practice, but love the look.

Totally Gorjuss was it's a man thing. A while we went to a scrap convention and there was a make and take where you printed your picture on acetate and then layered it into your card. I love taking pictures so I loved the idea. This picture came from our Michigan vacation this summer.

Make it Monday. It is a card for the 21st birthday of a guy at work. I used the technique called Whimsy Background from Technique Junkies for the background. I usually don't like cards that don't mail well, but on this one I added some curly ribbon because I know I am going to give it to him at work. The background stamp is an old one from Stampin' Up.

Stampin Daisies. Also the challenge at DYSU was texture. I think this card will work for both. Most of the elements for this card were pieces I received in swaps. The embossed background was a embossed swap and the splatter background was a background swap. The ribbon was some extra ribbon someone sent with a card. I have a real problem using my stash of stuff sometime. This time I just decided to go for it.

Make it Monday blog for sharing my cards. There is no theme---just share
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and Totally Gorjuss. I colored the M & M Person with copic markers and colored pencils. You can't see it, but I added black glitter to the eyes and red glitter to the mouth. Also clear gel pen was added to the M and to the eyes. I just love this image.
