PDCC99 - Paper Makeup Stamps

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Welcome to The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #99!
Our sponsor for this week is Paper Makeup Stamps...
who blessed each of us designers with a sweet, little image and sentiment to play with.  Thank you ever so much, Paper Makeup Stamps!  I received Suzie Fairy Plus Sentiment, and along with that lavender, soft yellow, and white color story above, created this.
I started this card by adhering a strip of lavender, bubble, patterned paper across the center of my Barely Banana, cardstock, card face, which had been rounded on three of its four corners; machine stitching, with black-threaded, zig-zag stitches, across its top and bottom edges; and dressing up its center with a length of white lace, as well as a soft yellow ribbon, wrapped around the card face two times; tied, in a dressy bow, near the left edge; and embellished with a lavender button, laced with white string.
I then stamped my image, in Jet Black ink, on a Whisper White, cardstock oval; colored it with Lavender Lace, Barely Banana, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, and Blush Blossom inks and a blender pen; framed it with a slightly larger, Basic Black, cardstock oval; machine stitched, with black-threaded, straight stitches, around its edges; and adhered it, with foam tape, just to the right of my embellished bow.
A touch of glitter, added to Suzie's wings; a couple more, hand-cut, and colored, in the same way as above, bubbles, adhered with foam tape; a little Crystal Effects to give all the bubbles dimension and shine...
and a stamped, in Basic Black ink, "Swimmin' by to say Hi!" sentiment...
complete the look.
