MFTW18

This picture Lisa M. found for this weeks MFTW (Makeup for the Weekend Challenge) is gorgeous!! Loved the colors, the springy flowers, and the bright cheerful sun! I knew I had to play along and THINK SPRING!








I decided to use one of my most favorite sets "Home Matters", it is only in digi form right now, but I'm wishin' and hoping and praying that PMS will release it in real rubber (poke, poke, wink, wink - Katie). This set has some really adorable images and sentiments including this birdhouse and sentiment, a doghouse and some clever off the wall sentiments, and even a car!! You can view the set here. Maybe if you like it too you can send Katie a poke poke telling her you think it would be a good idea to release it in rubber too!

I masked the birdhouses and then stamped over them with the two flower images from PMS's Friendly Flowers set. Because they are solid images, I just colored over them with markers and around the images instead of inking them up in different colors or stamping them out in different colors, cutting them out and layering them on top. Yes, I did it the lazy way!!

If you want to see the "real" way it should have been done, You can hop on over to the PMS blog and look at Lisa's take on the challenge - just gorgeous!! As well as all of the other awesome takes on the challenge so far.

Have a happy Monday - I think I'll be having Olympic withdrawl. It's been nice not having to fight over what to watch on T.V. :0)

  2. I like how the flowers turned out by coloring over and around them. I really like the stitching too... I'd love to be able to stitch cards...If only sewing didn't scare me so much!
