A Happy Hello
We had a fun camping trip which included a new experience: watching pelicans fish in the bay. I was absolutely mesmerized & took about 100 pictures knowing they probably wouldn't come out very good. Thought you might enjoy a couple anyway. I've never taken stamping supplies with me on our trips, but this time I did since it was a pretty simple design.
It came out OK, (posted here) but once I got home I decided it needed some layers. Here's the final version. I had trouble getting back into cardmaking, so started with my favorite PTI MIM challenge. I don't use my Gelatos very often & couldn't wait to try out the technique in the video. I used PTI Friendly Flowers & Wonderful Words: Hello with PTI inks Sweet Blush, Melon Berry, Spring Moss, Limeade Ice & Spring Rain along with Versafine Vintage Sepia. The Gelatos rubbed over the stamped images are Peach, Pistachio & Metallic Blueberry. I used the linen/canvas impression plate for a bit of texture.
First time to use these sweet peachy iridescent gems I got in close-out. I'm also entering the monthly challenge at Verve & SSS Wednesday.
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
