PMS Monday Challenge: Gettin' Sketchy!

>> Monday, July 27, 2009

Todays PMS Monday Challenge is a Sketch from Kim Stewart. I thought this sketch was super fun and i couldnt want to give it a whirl!

here's the sketch...

And here's my card from the sketch!

First I want to say that i LOVE this quote! The 2nd i came across it, i knew i wanted it to be a part of PMS. This is the type of quote that really speaks to me. A very uplifting we can be anything we want to be type. When I told Shaela the quote, she fell in love as well! She was the mastermind behind the wordart on this one and I really think she did an amazing job! Right now this is available as a digi download on the PMS site, but just a little sneakie hint, some of the digi wordarts are being rubberized for the August release. I'm just sayin'. hahaha.

For some reason, i was ALL about the glitz when i made this card! haha. I used some super fun glitter paper by Best Creations! I LOVE this stuff! I wish it didnt retail 2 bucks, but it seriously is the best glitter paper i've ever used! The glitter does not come off what so ever! So you dont get the random glitter stuck to your face! It's easy to diecut. And it just adds so much! Oh, and it comes in a LOT of colors. :)

For my wordart, i cut it out using a Spellbinder die and then left it in the die when i airbrushed it (i'm sure you've seen this all over the place, it's a pretty hot trend right now). But i do love that extra border it leaves. And it's made me want every single spellbinders die there is! haha. I also wanted a bit extra shimmer, so i spritzed on some Shimmerz Spritz in Terracotta. It gave just a subtle hint of shimmering color. Oh so fun! It was the first time i've used any colored spritz. I used the baby's breath all the time though!

For my glitter diecut, i wanted it a longer rectangle, but the die isnt that long. So i cheated! I cut the die, and then layered it underneath the paper and ribbon. It makes it look longer, when it's really not. :) I actually just layered paper on top, but it wasnt glittery. I wanted glitter! So i spread stickles all over it! I loved the look, but it still looked like something was missing. So i layered the ribbon on top of that. I would have preferred a satin ribbon, but I didnt have any in the color i wanted. So i went with grosgrain.

Now onto the flowers! Now this i was very proud of! I love the way these flowers turned out!!! They were just plain ol' ivory flowers that i pick up in the floral section of Hobby Lobby (pull them off the stems and remove the plastic center and you have perfect flowers for cards at über cheap prices! I then used my airbrush and copics again to make them match my paper! You would never be able to tell they werent that color to begin with unless you turned them over! But you can do this yourself without the airbrush, just color right over the flower with the marker. But then again, they werent sparkly! I wanted sparkle darn it! hahahaha. So i spritzed Shimmerz Spritz (in baby's breath this time) over them and let them dry. And oh the soft sparkle they have is DIVINE! Now the spritz from Shimmerz does come in a lot of colors. I didnt want to alter the perfect color i already used with the copics. But i cant wait to use a colored spritz on some ivory flowers. Wouldnt that be pretty! Oh, and now onto the brad. Again, i wanted sparkle and i love making glittery brands using embossing tinsel but darn it, i didnt have brown embossing tinsel! So instead i covered a brad in ranger glossy accents and just dunked it into some brown glitter. It worked like a charm!
