Hello! I see you're surviving the first Monday of the new year;) It's really nice to get back into a routine now that the holidays are over! Gym in the morning, walk the dogs, take a shower, have lunch, do grocery shopping/laundry/clean house, then STAMP!!! I've also really gotten into reading again! I've read three in the past week and a half. I used to have a hard time finding time to read, but I now find that I'm a night reader! Whodathunk? I think I'm most into it around 8:00 at night, I could read till midnight! Got my glass of wine, a movie in (I like movies I've seen a gazillion times so I don't have to watch it, lol!), my dogs at my feet, and my book:) I'm currently reading the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and it's just SO good! These books are NOT for kids, fair warning;)
Okay, sorry for the side-bar, I don't know where that came from, lol! If you're not familiar with the Club Anya Mystery Monday, one of the Team Anya DT pick out a card from The Galleria and we all CASE it! If you play along with us, and are the random winner, you win a free stamp! Sound fun? Why not start on this FIRST Mystery Monday of the year;)
Today, Team Anya is featuring Dictionary! Jess found this fab card to case and we all had a blast! Here's Dictionary's card:
I love this fun layout and that flower cluster on the upper corner!
Here's my CASE of her beautiful card!
I used Amelia from Little Dreamers again (there were so many of you who left me such sweet comments on how do I color hair and what colors do I use, so I used this one and did a tutorial! That's coming up in a bit!) and paired her up with some more October Afternoon:) I pulled the color combo from paper and colored her up with Copics!
I love this fun flower embellishment! That big white rose is by Prima and the smaller roses are from Zva. I also die cut some leaves from a PTI die and then using dimensional glaze created some little water drops on the leaves!
Okay, here's my quickie hair coloring tutorial! This is my favorite combo of colors for a brunette and I obviously like high contrast in my coloring. If you don't care for that look, you'll have to do some blending which I didn't add to my toot because I don't do it, lol!
Okay, here's step 1
Like I mentioned, I don't do ANY blending when I do hair like this because I like the choppy texture of the unblended. I'm sure this grates on a lot of people's nerves but I love this look, lol!
Well there you have it! That's how I color hair (most of the time!)
When I color hair blonde I like to use E50, E53, and E55. For black hair I like C3, C5, C7, and C9. I'm still playing with red hair so I don't have a favorite for that one yet!
Hope you enjoyed that mini tutorial! I was too lazy to do a video toot;)
Make sure you stop by the other girl's blogs to see how they CASE'd Dictionary's card too!
