Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Memorial Day to my U.S. friends & Happy PTI Blog Hop Day to everyone! I love the Blog Hops & had great fun playing with the new Quilted Summer stamp set & my PTI inks. I need a card for a girl in the family I've never met.  She just graduated from college with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, so thought something graphic might be good.  I would never have thought of using watercoloring with this type of image, but lately I've been seeing it done with everything! Turned out to be a look I really like, as long as I kept the water to a light spritzing. Tried about 100 different ways to line up the triangles & settled on this--LOL!  All the inks were splattered on the card front, the sentiment from PTI Tag-Its #3 was stamped in Memento Gray Flannel & a few PPP clear sequins finish it off. Lots to see, so I'll keep this short.  Enjoy the Hop!
