Today is day 3 of the Paper Makeup Stamps sneak peeks. Today we have more fairies...my favorites! This fairy is very special because of its significance. She's Hope Fairy and her ribbon represents all the causes that affect our lives. I've chosen purple as my ribbon color to represent the fight against Alzheimer's disease. (I found this site that tells you the ribbon colors and their meanings.) As some of you may know, my dad lost his life due to complications of Alzheimer's (you can read about him here at the very bottom of the post), so this is dedicated to him and all the families afflicted with this disease.
I've used all PTI papers here today. I don't own much purple (not my favorite color!), but I did have PTI's Guidelines dp and their lavender moon and plum pudding, as well as the plum pudding ribbon! Hope is colored with various copic markers and I popped up the bird and Hope's wings. She's got star dust stickles all over her cause I think fairies should SPARKLE! The sentiment is from a PMS quote. The entire quote says "When the world says give up, hope whispers try it one more time". I thought it would be perfect for this card, but it unfortunately didn't fit. So, I just colored the word "hope" and stamped and punched it out with the small oval punch. Problem fixed! I added some bling to the sentiment as well. This card was made using the fabulous Mojo Monday sketch for this week too.
I just love this fairy, and she can represent any cause of your liking just by coloring her to match your cause. Pretty neat idea, huh? I hope you stop by the PMS blog to check out the other new fairies: a tooth fairy and friendship fairies. They are too cute! Stop by the DT blogs too and give them some love. They'd really appreciate it! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
