Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

Haven't been a blogger very long, so this is my first chance to participate in a PTI Blog Hop  "here" .  I was so inspired by the MIM video this week using COPIC markers to make graduated backgrounds, that I made another one inspired by the challenge photo.  I don't use a lot of yellow, but the photo certainly made me think Spring & I really liked the yellow/aqua color combo.  The COPICS I used are Y02 & B02.  I white embossed the leaf circles from PTI Tag-Its #3.  The sentiment from the same set is white embossed on vellum die cut with Spellbinders oval & the words are then colored with the same 2 markers.  This is another technique I learned in a MIM video.  The oval is attached to a vellum tag die cut with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 2.  The reverse corner punch is by Fiskars & the yellow glitter dots are Mark Richards.

Enjoy the hop!
