No, not that kind of PMS...it's Paper Makeup Stamps! (I always giggle when I see PMS!) Paper Makeup Stamps is having a blog hop today. The hop begins at 12:00 noon today and the fun begins at 3:00 on the PMS forum on Paper Craft Planet (there will be some pre-party chatter there as well). If you go to Katie's blog, you can see the party plans she has cooked up for us. Now, on to my card!
I've been coloring these fairies only with copic markers, so I thought I'd give them the watercolor treatment (I think I like my copics better, LOL!). I used the reinkers and a blender pen. I just can't use an aqua painter because I don't have good control over the water on the brush! I've tried and tried to no avail! So I used the blender pen. More user friendly, but not wet enough! I guess there's no pleasing me! Anyway...here is Jaina Fairy. I think it came out ok, but I think the copics would have been better. The layout is a Lauren Meader My Time sketch.
As you can see, I turned the sketch to accommodate my image, which by the way is way cute! Love these fairies! After coloring my image and mounting it on Kiwi Kiss, I used Shimmerz paints in sunflower, celery, pink and sky blue for some SHIMMER! The glow around the lantern looks like I spilled something and tried to clean it up! It doesn't look like that IRL! I almost re-did the image, but it was too late! I used SU's Raspberry Tart and cameo coral which was run through the swiss dots cuttlebug folder. I used a Martha Stewart punch (ETA: it's called the Flourish Edge punch...I got it at my LSS a while ago, but here is a link to what it looks like. Scroll down a bit to see it.) on the end to give it some interest. The ribbon is Kiwi Kiss satin and I use a slot punch to run the ribbon through the coral piece. Dew drops and a sentiment from PTI's Mixed Messages finishes it off.
On the inside, I used the same dp and MS punch and the Friendship is Comfort sentiment that I just loved! I can think of a good friend that I may send this to (I'll keep it a secret in case she's peeking in here!).
Ok, are you ready for some hopping? I have everyone's blog listed below that are participating in this PMS blog hop. (And I promise that none of them have PMS, only their stamps! LOL!) Please stop by and see what fabulous creations they have to share with you. Here they are:
Have fun and please leave these ladies some nice comments...I know they've been working hard to get their cards done and posts ready! See you later!
