Birthday bust and a Monday Challenge PMS card!

>> Monday, June 29, 2009

Thank you so much to all my well wishers for my birthday! My hubby forgot. Yep, totally forgot. I got lots of roses on saturday though. but here's my crazy thinking... i got 3 dozen GORGEOUS roses, and i wanted to say to him... honey, do you know how many markers and refills i could buy with that?! hahahahaha. He did try to make it up to me all weekend, which is part of the reason i havent posted much. That and the reason that my house needs some definite attention before my parents come to visit this next weekend!

Ok, and now onto my card for the day.... I finally was able to participate in another Paper Makeup Stamps Monday Challenge! This week was Tina's turn to issue our challenge and she chose the faux silk technique. Um... i've been living under a rock because i had never even HEARD of this challenge before! But it was fun and very very simple. You just stamp onto tissue paper, crinkle it all up, flatten it back out, glue it onto a piece of cardstock (i just used a glue stick all over the cardstock... i knew that glue stick would come in handy again some day!) and then press the tissue paper down. Viola! And it gives you this really pretty texture that i hope my photo captured enough for you. I was very lazy and didnt take the picture until well after dark when i had the card done by my 2! Silly me.

Here is my faux silk card...

I used Nature's Song by Paper Makeup Stamps. I really do love this set. Silvia outdid herself on these graphics and i just love the font so much (obviously, since i used it for the PMS logo!). THe quotes are really spoke to me. I just love this set!!! And GASP, i did not use copics! Granted its a little hard to use copics on a solid image (though you CAN! i'll do a quickie tutorial on that soon). I pulled out the old trusty LePlume markers to color directly onto the stamp .

Here's the rest of
