Soaring to New Heights

 Well another release for Paper Makeup Stamps has come and gone!  How did you like the latest release...what, you didn't see it yet?  Well then click on over to the PMS Store to check it out.  But before you go let's visit a stamp from the release that will have you soaring to new heights!

This is Lea and she is flying along with her kite!  Looks like fun doesn't it...a lot better than standing on the ground trying to get the darn kite up in the air.  Yup that is me...for some reason I just do not have the knack for getting a kite to fly!  Anyway, I thought it was fitting for her to have a sky behind her, so I created one...pretty cool right?!  Done by sponging over top of a scallop circle and moving that scallop circle around to form the clouds.  A little paper piecing, some rhinestones, and some baker's twine later, she looks complete...just wish it would have come together that fast and easy.  This was definitely a labor of love!  Oh and I used the first week Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge for May for my layout.

You cannot see it in the big picture, but check out the detail shot.  See that slight sparkle on all of the white cardstock?  That is the Cryogen White Iridescent cardstock from Paper Temptress.  It has a lovely sparkle that just makes you smile.  I have heard it is fabulous with Copics.  I used ink and a blender pen here...it definitely acted different than my other cardstock I color on...hard to explain.  It is almost like it was absorbing the "water" too fast and wasn't allowing me to blend like I am used to.  It is so pretty though, so I will definitely keep playing with it.  If you are interested, it is on sale right now for 30% Off at the Paper Temptress Store!

Make sure to jump over to the PMS Blog to see what the other makeup artists are showing off today.  Until next time (which may be  a little bit scattered here as I have to make birthday invitations for my daughter's birthday and then make a cake), thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
