Custom Colors

This was for Today's "Ways to use it" challenge. We were inspired to use or create frames. I created this frame by stamping on a transparency sheet with my scrapblock and then running through my die cut machine cutting with my nestablities die. Isn't this lil' elephant is from Kim Hughes' new set "Zooper Fun"
See that light green/blue haze around him? That is my BG10 custom color mix! All the chat on Marianne's blog about custom colors made me think I should point out mine.
Here are all the deets:
Distressed Circle (Scrapblock), Zooper Fun (Kim Hughes), Mother Centers (Mona Lisa Moments) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Black Stazon, Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Weathervane (October Afternoon)
Transparency (Office Supply Store)
Simply Smooth White (Prism)
Circle Dies (Spellbinders)
Copic Markers
Airbrush System (Copic)

Flowers (Prima)
Tiny Twinks (Taylored Expressions)

I took an empty refill bottle.....labeled it....and mixed 2cc's of blender with 2cc's of BG10 refill and shook them together and filled an empty sketch marker. I love this VERY light blue as the edges are easier to blend out to white creating that very soft haze you see around my elephant.
I also have markers for this in Y21 and B000.

Thanks for dropping by! Don't forget to come back for cupcake friday tomorrow!
