Celestial Possibilities

Paper Makeup Stamps - M4TW29 Color Combo

Isn't this the most divine fairy you've ever seen? Her name is Celest and she's in the new Paper Makeup Stamps kit called Celestial Possibilities. I just love how she's reclined on the moon and reaching towards some stars. I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS (odorless mineral spirits). I like how I can layer different shades of color and blend them together with the pencils. The PMS Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge is a color combo using Buckaroo Blue, Close to Cocoa, Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun and Perfect Plum. I took the liberty of adjusting the blue to a lighter shade to match the delightful paper from the Celestial kit and I added a silvery grey for the moon.



Here's a picture of the full card. It's 5-1/2 inches square. Other than the white cardstock and vellum, the papers and accessories are all from the Celestial Possibilities kit. I just {heart} how everything is matchy, matchy and I don't have to dig through my supplies to find things that can go together and look good.

I covered the edge of Celest's nestie shape with my silver spica glitter pen. Her wings, stars and moon are all highlighted with a clear one for some subtle sparkle there too. The kit comes with four kinds of ribbon or rick rack. I chose to use the green ribbon to mimic the one on Celest's dress.

The sentiment is from the kit too and I just love how well it goes with the thoughtful look on Celest's face. I stamped it on vellum and attached it to another pattern of the pretty paper from the kit that I cut out with a fancy tag nestie. Then two of the matching brads gave it just the right finishing touch. Again I {LOVE} how the pattern on the brad matches the patterns on both the papers. And I love the texture of the blue cardstock in the background too. {grin}

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy a day of dwelling in your possiblities too.

love this card - you did fabulous job with the kit!!

btw - Flourishes stamps are clear acrylic. I don't normally like clear stamps, but there's are some of the rare few that are fabulous quality. :)
