Catching up with Paper Makeup

By now, you should know that Paper Makeup has Monday challenges. This week... USE STICKERS!! I did mine late last night...too late to get in on the company blog. It was a slow and late stamping roll last night...but I'm pleased with the results.

This main panel used some Basic Grey Paper. Then I took Saffron and ink pads to distress the card base...to echo the colors...only in reverse!

I thought I was done for the night when I came across these boisterous flower stickers already blinged out. I think Nitsy might have sent them to me last year. Hah. Thanks Anita! This card just flowed and I LOVE it. Too bad I'm out of those flower stickers.

I was out of town for the August reveal and didn't have a chance to do the Reveal Party Challenges. One challenge (PMSRP13) was to CASE a card by a non DTer. Last night I came across a lovely card by Mrs. Mac in the Splitcoast gallery. I'm sure it called to me b/c her original color was red. So I went with some paper that Kim gifted to me...and made the card pink/grey with a touch of celery since the large bling in the flower center is celery. I decided to make the ribbon criss cross instead of the straight lines on Mrs. Mac's card. A few blings for the CAS27 challenge...and presto...a card that I'd like to receive!

Remember to add the keyword: PMSgallerychal to the Paper Makeup cards you upload to SCS. You can win a stamp designed to your specifications! How totally fun is that!!

(Be sure to scroll down to see the sneak peek for Sherrod Studio...this is going to be a busy week. I'm off to play with the Doodles!! So check back later for some Starving Artistamp funniness! And yes...I can make up words when I'm talking about those creatures! haha)
