PMS Monday Challenge

PMS's Monday Challenge was a sketch challenge.





Penelope is a very Asian fairy. Which is probably why I have tried to make her very "un Asian." I love trying to figure out how versitile I can get with a certain stamp. This stamp is very formal and elegant and distinguished. I tired to make it look fun, more carefree and relaxed. I think it turned out cute and nearly preppy! (It's the 80's talking.)

The other thing that I like to do on these creatures..acetate wings. I use a 2 way glue pen on the back of the acetate...then cover it in dazzling diamonds. It is an awesome effect with the black cardstock behind it. THe square rhinestones were turned to become diamonds. Yep...it got away from cute...and preppy is definity cool too!
