Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge--Missed the Deadline

August Blog Hop InspirationHurrah--it's PTI Blog Hop Day! Unfortunately, I forgot the deadline & missed it.  My inspiration came from the row of beautifully colored wool in the photo.  I used PTI Watercolor Wonder & stamped the image full strength & second generation with PTI Autumn Rose, Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest & Summer Sunrise.  I just got the PTI cardstock sampler so used Autumn Rose for the background strip & the PTI Wonderful Words: Hello die cut.  I stacked 4 of the die cuts with the top one Autumn Rose clear embossed & attached so there was a slight white shadow.

The sentiment from Wonderful Words: Hello was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. Since the white strip was a scrap, I'll enter at Pixies Snippets Playground.  I'm also entering the Pretty Patterns challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  18. I recently made a rainbow with a brush stroke card like that and knew I was inspired by something but couldn't remember who or what. Now that I'm here I see it was this card! I did visit you back then but got distracted midway and forgot all about it.
