Freebie Friday at Paper Makeup Stamps

Well it's Friday and that means Paper Makeup Stamps has another FREE digi wordart for you. You can pick it up here on the PMS blog and it will be available free for a week before it goes away and you'll have to pay for it! It's a beautiful saying by Leonardo da Vinci.
When I first saw it, I thought of doing a clean and simple card, but it sort of got complicated along the way! I used the Mojo sketch from yesterday and the color combo from the Color Throwdown blog. They chose three of the new SU in-colors: bermuda bay, soft suede, and dusty durango. I matched up this Marrakech dp from Basic Grey. All the layers were distressed with soft suede ink and I used the dusty durango polka dot ribbon. The flower is from the Friendly Flowers set from PMS. I just loaded the stamp with dusty durango ink, stamped off then stamped on my circle. I didn't want the image to be too strong...the wordart was the focal point of this card. I finished off the bow with a PTI button strung with some floss in a rust color.

So why don't you head on over to the PMS blog and pick up your FREE wordart? We'd love to see what you do with it, too, so please leave a link to your card in the comments section or post it on SCS using the key words Paper Makeup Stamps or pmsgallerychall to be entered in a contest to have a fairy named after you or a loved one. You can see more information about this contest in this post. You still have time to enter this contest...it runs until August 31, so get those entries in!

Thanks for stopping in today and have a great Freebie Friday!
