Paper Makeup Stamps Release Day Blog Hop

Wow!  Another release from Paper Makeup Stamps!  And this month is another goodie!  You should have arrived here from the "other" Lisa's blog...Lisa McKinney!  Didn't she have a lovely Madelyn silhouette card?  She always does such beautiful work with these fairies!  If you haven't come from Lisa's blog, then please go to the PMS blog and get all the details.  If you get lost hopping, you should see a linky tool of all the PMS DT there too.  On with the hop! 
This is Suzie the Snorkeling fairy.  I love to snorkel so I had so much fun making this card!  I started with this great dp from Basic Grey called Lauderdale.  I thought the bottom dp looked like water and the waves.  And I love the lime green paired with it!  So Suzie's bathing suit just had to match!  She's colored with copic markers, then I added Star Dust Stickles to her wings and Crystal Effects to her mask and bubbles for more dimension and shine.  The sentiment is being sold with the fairy as a set.  It was too big to fit in the spot I wanted it in, so I cut the words apart and glued them on separately.  I love that look once in a while.  It also looks like the words are floating in the water (well, at least they do to me!).  You can see that her hand is sticking out of the nestie shape.  That's called the Out-of-the-Box technique.  You can see a great tutorial here for that technique.  I used a Taylored Expressions sketch for this card.  I'm so glad she's back to doing sketches because hers are always so wonderful to work with.

You should have been collecting letters along the way to spell out a phrase that will get you 15% off this July release.  My letter for you is "A"

Before I send you off to the next blog, I want to invite you to the PMS forum for the Release Party tonight at 9:00 pm EST.  We have four new DT members and I'm sure we'll have lots of fun welcoming them.  We'll have games and prizes too!

Now hop over to the fabulously talented Tangii Crain's blog to see her beautiful creation!  Thanks for stopping in today and enjoy the rest of the hop!
