PMS Blog Hop!

>> Monday, December 7, 2009

If you have hopped here from Randee's blog... you are on the right track! If you have just come along my blog by chance, today is the day of the December Paper Makeup Stamps blog hop and you'll want to start at the beginning!

First things first, before i forget... my letter for you!

Can you see it? It's the letter i! I did a little google search for the letter I and found this picture. I just think it's so fun! I want to be sure to give credit where credit is due however! I did NOT take this picture! You can see this photographer's flickr page HERE.

Ok, now onto my card! I was soooooo very excited to ink Madelyn up! I just think she's beautiful! And after seeing Lisa color her wings a gorgeous glittery pink, well i just had to go out of my fairy wing coloring norm! So i decided to go gold!

I did want to make my card a christmas-ie card, though Madelyn herself isnt necessarily a christmas stamp. So i chose red and green to color her dress. Then i went to my christmas paper collection and discovered... i dont HAVE a christmas paper collection! Truly i dont! I had less than 5 sheets of paper and it was all from the Basic Grey Blitzen collection. I'm not sure why i dont own any christmas paper! So i was puzzled and had to think outside the box. I had this gorgeous paper my friend Kelly gave me umpteen million years ago that i've been hoarding. It's pretty script writing is all about angels. But still, the card needed a little more color. Thats when i had the idea to create the window. Looking back, it would have been more approriate to create a star somehow instead of a moon. It definitely would have fit the christmas spirit a little better. Oh well. I airbrushed with the cardstock still inside the nestie and then after removing the cardstock i went along the edge (the white part that was left) with a brown copic marker (specifically E37) to make it look a little more "window-like". I carefully cut out the colored fairy (color first, then cut out!) and glued her onto my created scene. Oh wait, I put a strip of brown cardstock down first so she'd had a floor. then i glue her on top. teehee.

Here is a more close up view...

Oh, gorgeous!! You have no Christmas paper and I'm probably swimming in it. Funny how things work. How clever is that "i" photo? You may not have taken it, but you found it, and that certainly counts for something. I think it's great!

Lisa Kind Monday, December 07, 2009  

Oh, Katie! This is so pretty! I LOVE the window! Such a cool idea! Your angel wings are so shimmery and pretty! Great card! I think this release is going to be another success!

Lisa Kind Monday, December 07, 2009  

Oh I your letter! I thought at first that you took that picture!

Cheryll AW Monday, December 07, 2009  

Very pretty, and I agree, a Christmas star would have been an ideal choice.
