Monochromatic Yo from the Leia Collection at Ike’s Art!


Good morning Friends,

I have a card to share with you all, using an Ike’s Art image, from the “Leia Collection.”

Monochromatic-challengeThe Ike’s Art image I used for this Monochromatic card is called “YO.” This is just one of the adorable images from the “Leia Collection”

The 'LEIA' CollectionAll of these images can be found in Ike’s shop click here!


I colored my image with Copics. Then with “Brushable Glue” that I painted on with a paint brush, I added “Neon Flamingo” glitter and “Pretty Princess” glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Neon FlamingoPretty Princess

The back ground DSP is retired Stampin’ Up papers. I used retired “Pleated ribbon” from SU. The card stock is also Stampin’ Up called “” and I used a Spellbinders’ die cut on it.

I created this card as a DT card for Ike’s World Challenges. However the challenge is over in a couple of hours. I honestly thought we were taking a summer break so I never posted this card.

I have spent a month in Texas with a good friend, and I was not on the computer much. I could have posted this from Texas, by having my mom email me the photo, but I did not pay attention; and for that I do apologize to Ike, and everyone else for not posting this sooner. But I do hope you all will pay a visit to Ike’s Art shop and look around she does have some awesome digis.

Here is the link to Ike’s World Challenges.

You not be able to get a card made in time for the challenge #19 “Monochromatic” but go to the challenge blog and check out what the other DTs have created, they really do, do some amazing art work, it’s totally worth your time to just hop on over there for some inspiration, or to just be wow’ed!

I am back home, for now… leaving again July 16th for a week. I have some exciting information coming up very soon. (No I am not pregnant!) So tuned!

I have used the digital image “Thatch Cottage” from Ike’s Art. (Follow this link to get your Ike’s Art images.) Any one can play our challenges, HOWEVER, only entries using an Ike’s Art image will be considered for the winner and Top 3.

I have colored the “Thatch Cottage” with Copics. I used Tulip white puffy paint for the snowy effect. I have used Stampin’ Up’s!

I sponged the sky using Cool Caribbean ink and daubers #102892.

Paper Creations Ink’s new challenge #19 “Show Us Your Style Using Your Favorite Technique”


Here is my DT technique card, using our sponsor’s (Ike’s Art) image.

I have used “Angles and Demons” donated from Ike’s Art. Get yours here!

The techniques I have use are one, I made a metal flower out of a Sprite soda can, then used TH’s Adirondack alcohol on it, then finished it off w/ a Stampin Up jeweled brad in the center. I have also used Stickles on both sets of wings, and on the flower. Another technique I did is fussy cut out my image. I used flesh color Copic on the Angle and Prismacolor pencils on the demon and both sets of hair.   I used a piece of black lace trim from SU. DSP from DCW.

I do hope you come and join me in some fun and show us YOUR technique. To enter Paper Creations Ink’s challenge click here.
