Graph'It Marker Challenge - Background with GI Markers and Mix It Fluid

Happy Friday Everyone! It's time for another Graph'It marker challenge. This week we are challenging you to create your own background using GI markers and the Mix It fluid. There are endless possibilities and here is what I did:

I used four different shades of teal markers, an acrylic blog and the Mix It fluid to create my background (the teal one right behind the image). With the broad nib I scribbled all four shades (overlapping) onto an acrylic blog, sprayed it with the Mix It fluid and stamped onto white card stock. You have to work quickly as the alcohol evaporates quickly and the color dries fast.

The image is from Whimsy's November release called Penguin Chocolate Surprise by Crissy Armstrong. The sign in the background is a Make It Crafty stamp and you can also get it in the Whimsy store HERE. The sentiment is from LOTV , the flowers are from WOC, the bling is from Want to Scrap and the papers are from Echo Parks Holly Jolly Christmas collection. The sprig is a Memory Box die.

Sign: 3120, 3140, 3160, 3190
Snow: 9100, 9101
Scarf & Hat: 7210, 7220, 7240, 7260, 7290
