Hello again everyone! No, you haven't just stepped into the twilight zone - this is my second post of the day, LOL! (this is possibly a first for me, hee hee!)
I am so excited to announce that I am guest designing for Paper Makeup Stamps this month!! WOO-HOO! Huge thanks to Katie and the rest of team for having me! *waves*
For those of you who don't know, Paper Makeup Stamps have a gorgeous new release this month, and for the next few days the DT are showing sneak peeks of these fabulous new stamps! Today we are showcasing 4 brand new Beautiful Day Fairies, and I get to show you 'Leigh' - isn't she gorgeous? If you hop on over to the PMS blog, you will find some more sneak peeks of Leigh and the other new Fairies by the rest of the DT.
For my card, I followed this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop, but moved the main image panel to the right a wee bit so I could fit in the letter stickers! All DP and the letter stickers are from my Echo Park 'Life is Good' Collection Kit (available HERE from Quixotic Paperie). I also had a go at using my Viva Decor Glitter Pen in bronze to create the small, brown pearls. For some strange reason the colouring of her hair didn't turn out well today. I used my usual E31 E33 E35 and E37 to colour, but when I laid the different shades on top of one another, they mixed really weirdly and stayed on top of the paper without soaking in. Does anyone else have problems with these shades? Perhaps it's my paper, or perhaps the nibs are a bit clogged and need replacing? Anyhoo, her hair is not supposed to be a weird orangey colour on top, LOL!
The actual release of the gorgeous new PMS stamps is on Augst 7th at 8pm EST, so mark your calendars as you won't want to miss this one!
Thanks, as ever, for popping by! I shall be back tomorrow with my YNS challenge card and my Quixotic Paperie challenge card ... that is if I get them finished - eek! I need 48 hour days at the moment, LOL!
