PMS Digital Makeover Challenge #19–Winter Blues

Hello on this fine Monday morning!  It is time again for another Digital Makeover Challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps!

The rules are simple: Use a digi and stay within the challenge theme. There will be one random winner who will receive 3 single digis of their choice from PMS (or 5! if you use a PMS image in your winning entry).

The Challenge:


And here is some inspiration:


I saw that this week’s challenge was going to be blue and this image automatically came to my mind for some reason. But, I want to give it a different spin – not just coloring or regular paper piecing.  so I cut it all out and decided to really give it lots of dimension.  I embossed the sails and background (don’t you LOVE that vintage background?!) and popped pretty much EVERYthing up with pop dots to give it a really lively look:



Stamp: PMS Sailing By Set | Ink: Unknown ink spot | Cardstock: Stash | Embossing folders: Provo Craft | Tulle: Hobby Lobby | Brads


Entered In:

Paper Sundaes: Paper Piecing
