PMS Monday Challenge and Sneak Peek Day 1

Today is a double's our usual Monday Challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps and it's day one of our August sneak peeks. Today's challenge is a technique challenge and was chosen by yours truly. The technique is to make your own decorative paper. I made my own paper using a technique I've been wanting to try for a while....alcohol inks. Here's my card.

First of all, do you love the image? I was hoping PMS would have a fairy with a dog because I love dogs! I had to have this one to sneak for you! Her name is MeMe Fairy and she'll be available on the 7th.

Now the technique. I followed the tutorial on SCS for Alcohol Inks and let me tell you it was EASY! I used a piece of photo paper (because it's glossy) and butterscotch, lettuce, raisin, eggplant, and latte alcohol inks and silver mixative. It literally took me 5 minutes to do.

I wanted to show as much of the background as possible, so all I added were some ribbon, a paw print brad, and the word "soulmates" from the Soulmates free digi from PMS this week. You can find it here. I thought it was perfect for this fairy and her dog.

Stop by the PMS blog and see what the others have for you. If you play, post a direct link to your creation on Mr. Linky on the PMS blog. if you post to an online gallery, use the keyword PMSMC22. Thanks for stopping in today!
