Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

cards

When I just typed that, I thought of that movie “Princess Bride”! My Mom LOVED that movie and could watch it every day and laugh no matter what.

It is challenge time again at the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog. A new challenge starts on a Tuesday and ends on the following Monday.

This week’s challenge is to create a New Year’s themed project using one of Michelle’s images.

I’ve used the Fairy Bride in my card to give you some inspiration for the challenge. I colored her with Watercolor Crayons. I cut 2 slits on either side of her waist sash and put tulle through each one, hanging out the back where you can’t see it. I added a couple extra punched flowers and vines for a wrist corsage.

Hello Blog Readers!

I have another Michelle Perkett Studio creation for you – full of winter peace!

Tia is another beautiful poinsettia fairy with a little more pixie-ness than yesterday’s image. Her cute short skirt and fur anklets add for a cute touch while being warmer at the same time!

I loved the pink and brown look using Copic markers then the little added texture of a corrugated tag.

Join in on this week’s challenge at the MPS blog — make a Christmas themed project using a MPS stamp! Good luck!

The Poinsettia Fairy was a recent spotlight special at Michelle’s store – so pretty with her winter dress and poinsettias everywhere!

I chose a bit of an nontraditional color scheme for her, but it still works I think! She looks so warm in her fur lined outfit!

You can still send out holiday or winter cards in time by purchasing digital stamps with nearly instant delivery! Definitely shorter than by mail or pick-up since you receive the images electronically! It’s such a great delivery method!

Take a peek and stay warm!! Remember you can click on the picture for a larger view.

She’s alive and well at Michelle Perkett Studio! Every week Michelle showcases a digital stamp and puts it 20% off for the week! This week is an Alice in Wonderland stamp!

Michelle actually has multiple Alice stamps to pick from. The special is on only one of them, so check out her Etsy store to see it.

I’ve made a card using a different Alice in Wonderland stamp, so when you’re there, take a peek at the other “Alice’s” available.

Have you ever made  your own stamped background paper?

Well, that’s this week’s challenge on the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge blog. It’s challenge #56, make your own background paper with a Michelle Perkett Studio stamp!

For my sample, I used some of Michelle’s rubber stamps that I love. I stamped the snowflakes over and over than heat embossed them for a subtle look. That’s all it takes to make your own background paper!

Here’s my third card using the same glittered acetate technique mentioned earlier today.

I colored her in rich holiday tones to meet this week’s Holiday Challenge on  Michelle’s Challenge blog. It’s to use a holiday stamp from Michelle! Easy to do for sure! You have until Monday afternoon.

The sunlight catches the glitter so well!

Acetate, border punch

This is such a cute stamp, that I had to color it with glitter! Very similar to Holly the Winter Fairy, I used different glitter colors on the back of the acetate to give this sparkly effect. P K Glitz just has so many wonderful colors that it’s hard to pick, but I managed to come up with this pretty aqua and red combo.

Don’t forget that there’s a challenge going on at Michelle’s Challenge blog. It’s to use a holiday stamp from Michelle! Easy to do for sure! You have until Monday afternoon.
