Moody for Computers

Today I have a couple of cards using Moody for Computers to share with you. Paper Makeup Stamps is reviewing all of the new stamps that were just released on the 7th. Be sure to visit the PMS Blog to see the other beautiful samples the Makeup Artists have made for you today. And remember the 15% discount code from the blog hop is good through the 14th! It's not too late to save some money while you go shopping! {wink}

I was inspired by
this card created by one of our Senior Makeup Artists, Shaela Odd. I love how she colored Moody for Art in monochromatic tones and added color to the background. It just makes my heart go pitter-patter! {grin}

On this first card I stamped
Moody for Computers on Gina K. Pure Luxury White cardstock and used Copic Markers N0, N2, N4, N6, N8 to color her in. The designer paper is from the Sakura Park line by Kaisercraft. I didn't have any red flowers, so I colored a white fabric flower with a red copic marker. I used one of the simple sentiments from Paper Makeup Stamps, I'm so happy you're my friend. I have so many on-line friends that I've never had the privilege of meeting in real life yet. This image just makes me think of them and how happy I am to have met them through the computer. {smile}

On my second card, I wanted to try using the same markers on vanilla cardstock instead of white. I think it gives the image a little more softer and warmer feel to it, but it's a very subtle difference. I have a few cyber friends and faraway friends who are going through hard times right now. Even though I can't be there in person and give any of them a big hug, I can check up on them and send encouraging notes through my computer. That means so much to me. With that in mind, this sentiment from
When There's Nothing Left to Say was the perfect choice.

I think using vellum shapes behind Moody for Computers and the saying gives a nice subtle shadow to them. And it fits in perfectly with the
Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge to use vellum on your projects this week! {hint, hint} I like how it looks like she's in the glow of her computer screen in the midst of all those city buildings. That fabulous paper is from Basic Grey Wander.

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you all the beary best!
