TSMONDAY, Blue, Green & Brown!

Hello, time for another Totally Stampalicious Monday challenge, and this week it's all about colour! Join us and create a card or project with Blue, Green & Brown. Then all you have to do is upload to Mr. Linky on the Totally Stampalicious Blog!

I used Mr. Fixit Gus. I coloured him with copics, and his coveralls are dp from Basic Greys Wander. I also added crystal effects to his glasses.

The card base is chocolate chip, with a layer of the dp from Basic Grey and then a strip of dp from Crate Paper's snow day!

I really wanted to add some gears, but I keep putting off buying the punch!!! So I looked through my ricut cartridges and all the cartridges I borrowed from my girlfriend, and no luck! So I made my own!

Homemade Gears: I used 3/4" circle punch, 7/8" circle punch and the 2 smallest inverted scallop circles nesties, one from the sm & one from the lg. pkg.

First I punched the circles, and then I taped the nestie in place and ran it through the big shot! Pretty easy and I think they pass for gears!

Reminder: Totally Stampalicious New Release and Blog Hop is this Thursday February 24th, 9pm est. Hope you can join us, there's awesome prizes and lots of inspiration!

Have a Great Day!
Laurie
