Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop!

>> Friday, May 7, 2010

Welcome to the Paper Makeup Stamps May Release blog hop! If you've arrived from Dawn Knight's blog, you're right on track! If not, you can start at the beginning (and get all the good info on the release tonight, some challenges, and get the start of your special release code!)

It's here! it's finally here!
I have been ACHING to color up this image ever since Cynthia first sent her to me.
This is Moody for Dragonflies and i adore her! Even though i was coloring her past midnight when my poor tired eyes would have rather been sleeping... she was so much fun to color.

Ok, I've gotten ahead of myself! Here is my card!

I was actually very pleased with how my card came out... especially since I was creating while i was turning as orange as a YR15 copic marker (i.e turning into a pumpkin!)
But i truly truly adore coloring! Everything about it from picking out colors to just the time it takes. It's so relaxing. The card came together ok, with some special help from my new paper from the Fly a Kite collection by October Afternoon. I also used one of the PMS release challenges! I chose the 2nd challenge (to use a button and a bow on my card!)
Read more about the challenges on the PMS blog!

Here's a closeup shot of the image...

I used a LOT of different copic markers. And it's amazing how much easier it is to pick which colors you want to use when you already have your paper picked out. Too often i color with wreckless abandon and dont pick my paper first. Then i struggle finding the papers to match my image. So my helpful tip is to pick your color palette and papers first! :D

Just a Note for you (teeheehee)... for anyone that has ordered the past few months you may have noticed a freebie stamp in with your order. Of course they are only while quantities last, but i've been including a special small sentiment stamp, just as a thank you for everyone's support (you guys all mean the world to me!). This month's freebie is the sentiment i used on my card... "just a note". See a closeup view below...

So thats my card for you! But before i forget... you need your letter!
Remember to collect the letters along the hop to get your special release code for 15% off the new releases. My letter for you is the letter M! As in.... Maria! Who is the next gal on the hop list! You are gonna flip when you see her monster card!

Hope to see ya tonight at the PAAAAARTAAAAAY!

Ginny Friday, May 07, 2010  

Wow! I really love this card and the stamp is gorgeous. Mine NEVER look like that when I do them after midnight! Hmm... maybe picking out the papers first would make my card making so much easier, but I get so excited about coloring that I forget that part... might explain why I have so many colored images that I don't have on cards...
