Lucky Me!

It's time for another Paper Makeup Stamps release!! And since it's been awhile, we've been itching to show you what's coming this month!! It's extra big and extra awesome!!

Yesterday we got to see some sneaks at some very pretty wordart. Today it's all about "The Luck O' PMS" . I get to show you a sweet wordart stamp with the lucky theme:



I was inspired by a picture frame I saw at craft store to create this card. It had a silhouette of some kids playing in a field with dandelions. I thought "Hey, I can do that!" I stamped Kristin with black ink and then just colored her in with a black copic. How easy is that ?!?! The grass is already part of the image, I just drew in the ground and colored it in to make it look like she was sitting on a little hill. Then I just sponged the ink around her. A whole new way to color in the fairies - and only one marker is needed!

On a funny side note: I was soo excited about this card and showed it to my DH, hoping for praise and admiration. Instead he looks at it and says "Is that a duck fairy?" What!! O.K. -whatever. Note to self: you'll get a better response asking the dog, at least he'll wag his tail :0)

So, YOU can get really lucky too if you take the chance!! Paper Makeup Stamps is giving the ENTIRE RELEASE away to TWO lucky commenters. Just comment on each blog everyday (one entry per blog per day). You earn an entry for each comment. Join us for the release party and comment there for more chances!!

Hope you have a LUCKY day!

  14. Wow. This is awesome. I would have never thought to turn an outline image into a silhouette!!! So going to have to do that.

  15. A fantabulous card! You were right...that IS a great technique...too bad I don't have a black copic...hmmm, wonder if a Black BIC marker would work...

  16. LOLOL, a 'duck fairy!' Leave it to a man to see a duck where there is no duck! Their brains just don't work like ours, lol!

    This is the exact reason I never ask my DH anything about crafting or stamping anymore. Not only would he see a duck here, he'd see some unheard of extinct prehistoric duck and then proceed to tell me in what 'age' it lived and what made it go extinct.

    The card is absolutely gorgeous ... and I love the color combination ... AND the duck fairy, lol, I had too! Genius how you just colored in the image to create the silhouette effect! Duh, why didn't I think of that?!?
