Paper Makeup Party Day and a blog hop!

>> Thursday, May 7, 2009

Whew! Sorry for the lack of posts the past couple of days. I have been bizzy bizzy bizzy getting ready for the PMS party tonight in the PMS forum! So it's definitely been a crazy week of posting on the website, getting the forum set up, doing a new newsletter and cutting a LOT of rubber!


But no one visits this blog to hear all that! You wanna see something, right?

Ok, well let me first say that I am your LAST stop of the blog hop. SO if you are starting here, you need to start at the beginning! Why?? Because it's the only way you can be entered to win the entire May release from Paper Makeup Stamps!

Here is my card... Stephanie at Funkie Munkie asked for me to do something with her black and white stuff. I took her quite literally. :) Now for those that have followed my blog since the beginning might remember a bella card i did what seems like eons ago that was all black and white. I used graphite pencils for that. But this time i used the amazing blendability of Copic Markers! :)




Now i promise you, i did not just turn my picture into a black and white photo!

I used Mary Fairy (what an appropriate name for a bride, huh?) and colored her with N0, N2, N4 and N8. Oh, and the colorless blender, of course. I also loaded her up with clear and silver spica pen.

Here i tried to angle her a little to the light. See my thumb?! It IS a color picture! :)


This one does a little better as showing her sparkles, but it's a little out of focus


Ok, so if you havent figured out the letter you need yet for the discount code and chance to win the release... you might be colorblind (which makes this whole post funny!) So let me just say, i only like to stamp on days that end in ___!
