Tha Cat's Pajamas and spotlighting

my first card today is for a new weekly challenge that just started up by the girls over at The Cat's Pajamas - CUTE stamps that i SO need to start adding to my collection....because a girl can never have too many stamps right?!?!? (ok not according to DH but what does he know!) anyway details of the challenge can be found over on Jen's blog. I used an SU stamp since i have no cat's pajamas stamps (yet) and TOTALLY copied a card over on MJ's blog Technostamper.

This stamp is from a hostess set. I put the mask over the stamped image and then sprayed liberally with pearl mist made from sunflower sparkle perfect pearls powder and yoyo yellow reinker - perfect pearls are available in my store and SO versatile. the camera doesn't capture the shimmer but it is incredible! the background is done using the direct mesh technique from the apr 2008 technique junkies newsletter and is done with soothing sunset big & juicy rainbow ink pad - also available in my store. the colors on the big & juicy pads are incredibly vibrant and i love working with them.

the next two cards use two of the stamps from the set. i placed the masks on them, brayered over them with Breeze ink (CTMH) and then sprayed liberally with pearl mist made from just pearl perfect pearls powder - adds TONS of shimmer to anything you spray it on! the images on all three are colored using an aquapainter and just dipping it into the perfect pearls powder and painting it on.


  1. Oh I like that spot light technique- very cool !

  2. Hi - wanted to pop in and reply to your question about the coloring on my MFT card at SCS :) I colored each part with a Copic marker, and then when it dried I went around the edges again with the same color; it's a nice easy way to create some depth with the markers. Hope this helps! Your blog is great! :)
