It's here! It's finally here! The Paper Makeup Stamps blog hop!
If you've been going along the hop you should have come here from the always ingenius Randee's blog! If not... well then you need to start at the beginning. There is a LOT of information on the company blog that you just don't want to miss about this release!
And now I have some info of my own about my project... and I know you're along for the ride of a long hop, so i'll cut the chit chat and get right down to it!
Here is my project for you...
It is painfully on my mind that my baby is going to turn 2 in a week! TWO! Thats a full blown toddler and not a baby. I'm actually having a very very hard time with it and my hubby seems to think it's both funny and that i'm mad at the same time!
This card and little giftie i made for him. Ok, so it's true that a 2 year old cant really appreciate a card made for them, but I handwrite a long note inside the birthday cards of the boys and then tuck them away for them to have when they are older. Granted again, they are BOYS so maybe they will never really care. haha.
But for a 2 year old boy.. Gabe does love his clothes. Actually, he loves running around naked too. Haha. but when you pull out a new shirt for him he squeals in delight "MY SHHHHHHHHHHIRT!" and clamours to put it on. So even though he wont really get that i hand stamped it, he will get that its new and it's a duck and there are bubbles which is all i can ask for! :D
So yes, this shirt is hand stamped using Bubbles the Duck and colored with copics. I've been planning to do something like this, for, oh, months now! And i'm finally getting around to it!
I stamped the image with memento ink and then heat set it. Then i colors it with copics and heat set it once again. And that is that!
So here's the matching card. Of course again, i used Bubbles the Duck on my card.
I also used a sentiment from the Little Moments sentiment set. This set was previewed yesterday, but i didnt have a card to show. but today i do! haha! I adore this sentiment from the set. I think it's my favorite! Maybe it's because i'm terribly nostalgic right now with the thought of my baby turning 2. Did i tell you my baby is turning 2 in a week! ACK!
It truly is the little moments we have to enjoy the most before they are gone. I've been trying to take the extra time to do trips to the park, zoo, playdough in the kitchen, etc lately because i just feel like all too often I get wrapped up in how busy things get, and i miss the little moments. The ones we are supposed to enjoy the most!
Here is a more closeup view of the image and sentiment. Bubbles again was colored with copic markers. Y32, Y35, Y38 for his yellow feathers and then Y32 and Y0000 for his belly. Because the yellow tones can get so bright and not so much "shadowy" i used a bit of w3 and blended that with my deep yellow colors to make sure he still looks shadowed.
Okily Dokily! Thats what i have for you and it's time now for you to hop along to the next stop on your route! Please give a warm hello to our guest designer for the whole month, Alex Lundgren. Alex has been a lovely fan and supporter of PMS and i'm so happy that she is joining us for the month!
