Moody Sneak Peak


It is my favorite time of the month (and the worst) by the name of PMS! Ok, sorry that was FAR too much information to share with all but usually if I think it, I type it! So there you have it! On the good side, yesterday started the Sneak Peeks for the August Release of Paper Makeup Stamps...so if you missed it, make sure you pop over there to see the awesome new fairies this month. But today we get to show you the new Moodies and Wordart for this release...so fun!!

I have the pleasure of showing you Moody for Kitties! This would be my niece, except for a slightly younger version of this Moody...but she is a total kitty fanatic! Anyway, I stamped the image in Black Staz-on onto watercolor paper and watercolored the girl (woohoo this fits the There She Goes Challenge #66 to Watercolor your image!). I paper pieced the 3 kitties using a polka-dot for one and a floral pattern for the other two.

I was very tired when making this card. See I am working as Song Leader and Snack Lady this week for my church's Vacation Bible School. So I was definitely struggling while making this. I started off trying to follow a sketch challenge, but it wasn't working, so I reduced it to this. Not bad...on the simple side, but sometimes that is ok...right?! The other part you will have to disregard is the poor girl's hair. I had this brilliant (totally brilliant in my head at least) idea to color her hair with the three colors of the kitties to kind of tie it all together. Yeah...not so much! It is not horrible, but it definitely isn't too pretty either. So quickly look past the hair please!!

Now make sure that you check out what the other designers have created for today at the PMS Blog. They are fantastic! Take note of the way in which you could win the ENTIRE release. So have fun checking out the sneak peeks...there will be more every day until August 7 where we will top it all off with a Blog Hop and Release Party at 8 pm EST in the FORUM (come for fun, games, and PRIZES!)...and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

wow, I love the paper pieced kitties - such a funky idea, since you normally think to color their fur. Great card!
