Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge


June blog hopI wasn't sure what I'd end up with for my PTI Blog Hop card, but decided to start by making a smooshed panel of the colors. The inks are PTI Lovely Lady, Raspberry Fizz & Simply Chartreuse along with Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon & a mix of Fired Brick with Frayed Burlap.  
Thought the circular image from PTI Friendly Flowers might look neat stamped in white paint.  I used Picket Fence Distress Paint watered down a bit.  It's a little hard to see in the picture, but I do like it.  I die cut the panel with a Spellbinder die & matted it to a square of Raspberry Fizz with foam tape.  The words & die cut are from Don't Forget to Write & 3 clear sequins provide embellishment. I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday.  Lots to see, so enjoy the hop!
