PMS Sneak Peek Day #4
So here's another sneak peek of three new PMS stamps for May. It's the cottage series illustrated by Lindsay Spencer. I fell in love with the cottage and willow tree when Katie first showed it to the DT. These images are digi images only for the DT because we didn't have the rubber yet, so that's why my tree is black. (These will only be available in rubber.) I didn't think I was going to be able to work with a black tree, but I really like how this came out. Initially I was going to do it totally in black & white, but then I was able to sneak in some color and I liked it! The cottage was colored only with the W copic markers (varying shades of gray). The windows are stain glass-looking, so I used these glaze gelly roll pens by Sakura (I think) that look like embossing. I used a red and green on the windows. I masked the card with a piece of torn paper, then sponged in the grass and sky. I drew in the flowers randomly to fill in the blank space. The cottage is on dimensionals.
Now take a look at that great sentiment! Isn't that a wonderful saying? What's nice about this saying is that it is being offered in a small size, like this one, and a larger size as well. Katie does that with a lot of her sayings so you can use them like I have here, or as a focal point on your card. I think that's a fantastic idea! Double use of one sentiment!
Well, that's it for today. I hope you enjoyed my cottage scene. I should have another sneak tomorrow for you, so please stop by again. And please stop by the PMS blog to see what the DT girls have been up to! Some amazing stuff being shown there. Also please don't forget about the blog hop and release party on Thursday. You can read about it here on my blog and here on the PMS blog. See you tomorrow! ETA: If you go to the PMS blog here, you'll see I'm the featured DT member today! How fun!
