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!

New challenge at Ike’s World Challenges!


Good afternoon Friends,

I would like to share a card with you and let you know about the challenge going on at Ike’s World Challenges!

The theme for Challenge #9 is “Anything Goes” using an Ike’s Art image. If you do not have an Ike’s Art image, then visit the challenge blog, because Ike has posted a Freebie for the duration of this challenge. Please don’t share the Freebie, please direct your friends to the actual challenge blog to pick it up, here is the link:


Here is my DT inspiration: I have used the Freebie called “Cushion Kitty”


I have colored “Cushion Kitty” with Prismacolor pencils.  I used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink w/ a handle. The Thinlit I used behind Kitty is from Stampin’ Up! so is the card stock. The embossing folder I used is from the new catalog “Sale-a-bration” and I got it for free. For every $50 you spend you get to choose products from that flyer.  The sentiment is also from Stampin’ Up! the stamp set is called “Giggle Greetings.” I just my Stamp and Write SU marker and colored in the senti.  On the top sentiment that is spose to be a hair ball. It’s on the stamp, I just colored it in w/ brown and carefully placed it there. The strings are just left over burlap strings.


What would a card be if you don’t add stuff to the inside? I have used my favorite Top Note Bigz Die, and a SU sentiment, marked it with the same color of SU Stamp and write marker.

Ike is offering the winner (Which is chosen by the DT) a $15.00 (USD) gift voucher!

I hope you like my card. I thank you for your visit! Stay Crafty my Friends/ and WARM!!!
