PMS Sneaks Day #3: Meet Drummer

It's Day 3 of the Sneak Peaks for the September release by Paper Makeup Stamps. Yesterday you got a glipmse of the fabulous new sentiment set Nothing Left to Say. Today it's all about the new images being released! We have some new images in the Beautiful Day Fairy collection, Retro Cutie Critters, and more!

I am quite taken with the Retro Cutie Critter line, and have fallen in love with one of the two new animals in the collection, little Drummer bear.

My biggest nemesis in coloring is coloring animals so I was a bit wary about coloring Drummer, but I think he turned out pretty darn cute! I kept him super simple on a CAS card highlighting the red and blue accents. I added just a smidge of sparkle to all the things I colored red on the image--the feather, the band and the drum. I think the Diamonds & Dots embossing folder matches his drum design just right! I used one of the sentiments from the Birthday Cheer set also by PMS and seperated it so it would be staggered. I think this little bear will be perfect for birthday cards or congratulations cards, don't you?

Now head on over to the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog for glimpses of the other fabulous images being released on the 7th! And make sure you check out the info on how YOU could WIN a $20 shopping spree at the Paper Makeup STamps Store!!!!!
