PMS Monday Challenge

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! It pretty much rained all weekend's been a rainy summer! But I have a pretty bright card to show you for our Paper Makeup Stamps Monday challenge. Kim Stewart issued a great sketch challenge for us. Here's the sketch.I thought that the Dustin Pike dinos over at Paper Makeup Stamps were being a little neglected lately (we all love the fairies and wordart...LOL!!), so I decided to use Terry the Pterodactyl. Terry is colored with copic markers to match this Lime Rickey dp by Basic Grey. I also used the new SU in-colors Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango. The polka dot ribbon is also SU's new Dusty Durango. I added some yellow stickles to his freckles and crystal effects to his eyes. I changed the placement of the sentiment a little because of the way Terry was facing, but I guess that's allowed, right? It sort of looks like he's carrying the sentiment!

You can see all the cards the DT made on their blogs (you can access them on my sidebar) or you can visit the PMS blog to see what they have for you. If you decide to play, post your direct link on the PMS blog, and if you post to SCS/PCP, please use the code PMSMC21.
Stamps: Terry the Pterodactyl (PMS), Mixed Messages (PTI)
Paper: Neenah white, crushed curry, dusty durango, Lime Rickey dp (Basic Grey)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Copic Markers: E08, 97; Y17; W-3
Accessories: Crystal effects, yellow stickles, grosgrain ribbon, circle punches, corner rounder, dimensionals

Now I have another to share with you. This was for yesterday's Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. Versamom was the FS and she has a great gallery. I chose to case this card because of it's simplicity and because it reminded me of this PMS Swirly Tree stamp that I've never used. This is what I came up with. I kept the same layout and added the embossing on the top and bottom. I used Soft Sky and Night of Navy as my colors. The sentiment is from PTI's Out on a Limb. This was a fun and easy card to do!

Thanks for stopping in today and have a great week!

Oh fun love your cards.

Lisa, I love your card. You are so right about those poor cute little dinos needing love. And your swirly card is just so elegant I love it for a sympathy card (another neglected stamp of mine) :)

Cheryl said...

Very soft and pretty. The perfect thing for a sympathy card.

p.s. No apologies necessary! I'm not a big Mick fan, but you certainly found a GREAT picture of him!

Cheryl said...

Oops, though the PMS was a separate post!
Love the orange dino stamp you used for the sketch! Great card!

Lisa M. (aka. Lisa @ Farm Fresh) said...

LOL! I've been thinking the same thing about my monsters and frankly ALL my non-PMS stamps! This is a beautiful card!
