Paper Makeup Stamps Monday Challenge


I had an interesting day at work yesterday - I work in a school lab and was using the pressure cooker when it went "BANG, HISS AND KAPOW". We were soooo lucky that no-one was nearby when it blew - I had been right next to it a few seconds previously!! One of the teachers and I just jumped into the nearest classroom as we had no idea what the end result was going to be - luck was with us and all we ended up with was a HUGE mess to clean up!!

To make up for my rotten day at work I arrived home to find a parcel in the post - the Paper Makeup Stamps I had ordered - they are soooo cute!!! I popped over the the PMS Blog and checked out their latest challenge - yahooo - embellishing with at least 2 types of BLING!!! Figured I could handle THAT - LOL.


I chose the stamp "Sprout" to work on - not sure why they're all divine! The different forms of bling I've used are Dazzling Diamonds - on Sprout's wings, mini red rhinestones - on her top and shoes, and red glitter - on the heart in the sentiment. I'm not sure if pearls count as bling but they are there too - on the wonderful Embrace Life flower that I just can't help but use. This time I CASEd the idea for toling the flower from the very talented Ange Kelly - check out her stunning version here.

I've also used some DP from the Dashing series as well as the For a Friend stamp set for the sentiment. Other colours are Real Red, Very Vanilla and Basic Black. As usual I have used my watercolour crayons and aquapainter on SU watercolour paper for the stamped image.

Goodness, lucky is right! Wow, Debbie. Don't scare me like that anymore! I couldn't bear it if you were hurt!

This card is so very cute! I haven't even heard of these stamps before. Love the sparkle on the angel wings.

Take care my dear friend!

Yikes, thank goodness everything went well at work. I work switchboard at the hospital and the lab just called to ask me to get maintenance there ASAP as something was about to blow. Talk about scary, but then you know that. Very cute card. I love the sparkle on the wings.
