PMS Jaina Fairy

There's a new stamp company in town! Literally, the owner lives about 45 minutes away in Greenville and teaches at my new fave LSS, The Funkie Munkie. PMS, in case you are wondering, stands for Paper Makeup Stamps!

This is my first post using a PMS image. I also managed to complete two challenges in one with this project ~ woo hoo for me! The first challenge was issued on Katie Cotton's blog (PMS owner), to make a bookmark. Here is my slightly blurry version :



Now a closer look at Jaina Fairy, and a little more in focus. She's lovely, isn't she! I colored her with Copics, the colors were from the Copic Colour Challenge blog. The challenge colors were Acid Yellow Y08, Brick Beige E31, and Mint Green BG13. I threw in a few additional colors for shading, but built the color scheme off the challenge colors.

The bookmark is topped off with Prima flowers and a brad by Spare Parts. The ovals were cut using Nestabilities. I cut the scallop oval out of white cardstock and used the BG13 pen to color it to match. The ribbons are from SU and Making Memories. You can't see the glitter, but I used a generous amount of Spica glitter pen on the fairy ~ aren't all fairies supposed to be glittery?

Just for reference, I took a photo of the back side so you could see how I finished the bookmark. You could easily add a sentiment, or signature to the back side if using for a gift.

Thanks for reading today, and be sure to visit PMS stamps to see what they have to offer!

happy stampin'
