Makeup 4 the Weekend and Copic Creations Challenges

Paper Makeup Stamps Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge, hosted by DT member Danni Bindel, is to use three flowers on your creation. PMS is also sponsoring the current Copic Creations challenge, which is to use the monochromatic theme. I used both these challenges, in addition to the Taylored Expressions current sketch challenge, to create my card for today. I used a new image from PMS from a new line called Retro Cutie Critters. This little cutie is called Lucy. I think the sentiment is paired perfectly with it, don't you think? We have more critters coming out in the June release, so if you like this one, wait until you see the others!

I colored Lucy with the W-copic markers for the monochromatic look. Katie Cotton, PMS owner, has a great tutorial on her blog of how to color an image in this manner. I sponged around her with Sahara Sand ink, then went over it a little bit with Regal Rose. It sort of made it brownish in color, which is not the effect I wanted, however I kind of like it! The dp is SU from a hostess pack and I paired it with basic gray and pink pirouette cardstock. The dp was cut with the new large scallop Dienamics die from My Favorite Things. I cut and embossed the image with an oval nestie, mounted it on a scalloped oval in gray, and then placed it on white piece that had the image stamped on it as well. This was so the tail could remain part of the whole image. I added those three flowers (from the bridal section of Michael's) and placed a gray crystal in the center.

So that's it for today! I'm off to get ready to spend the day at our cabin. All the boys are there, and my friend and I are going to join them. I'm not sure they like girls there, but they don't have a choice!

Why not try out these challenges? You can find the M4TW27 challenge here and the Copic Creations #28 challenge here. Katie is giving away a $35 gift certificiate to one lucky winner, so why not try out a new technique and possibly win! Thanks for stopping in today, and enjoy your Sunday!
