Paper Makeup Release Party Challenges

This is my 2nd post for today. To see my Paper Makeup Monday Challenge card please scroll down to the previous post.

Tonight is the August Paper Makeup release party and this month they posted the release party challenges early. I had a little time this afternoon so I thought I would get a jump on the challenges.

Here is the first challenge:
PMSRP12 – Paper Makeup “Recipe” challenge. The “paper makeup” for this challenge is:
Foundation: 1 fairy (PMS if you have it);
Powder: 2 patterned papers ;
Eyes: Bling (2 embellishments or just use stickles, glitter, shimmerz, etc.) ;
Blush: 1 sentiment ;
Lips: ribbon ;
You can add more – this is just to get started. The number of layers of “makeup” you use is up to you, as well as the color choices.

Here is my challenge #1 card: It is really rainy and dreary today and I had a hard time getting a good picture. The wings and waves have glitter added to them and the pearls along the bottom of the card are also glittered. This was my first time using one of the Paper Makeup fairies. He was so fun to color, I will definitely be inking him up again soon! The sentiment is from DRS Designs.

Here is the second challenge:
PMSRP13 - “I’ve got a CASE of PMS”.
CASE a card in the “PMS” gallery of SCS and changing at least 2 things.
For my CASE challenge I picked this GORGEOUS card made by Kim Stewart. Kim is an absolutely amazing stamper and I ALWAYS love her Paper Makeup creations. My card doesn't come anywhere near the beauty of her card. I CASE'd her card layout exactly and changed the colors and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
