Perfect timing for all the fun at PTI as I didn't have to hunt for inspiration to get back into stamping after my trip.
Love that the monthly PTI Blog Hop wasn't cancelled even though the SAF deadline isn't until tomorrow morning. The more chances Mr Random has to find me, the better--haha! Fresh & clean inspiration with Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Soft Stone & Blueberry Sky. I still needed to try Watercolor Like a Master, so combined the challenges.
Lots of practice needed, but I had fun using images from Garden Gild Mini Kit & a sentiment from Meadow Greens stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray. Fortunately I had a quatrefoil embossing folder which kept the panel from going into the trash. I'm also entering SSS Monday.
Hubby needs a thank you for one of his male cousins. The Masterpiece Inspiration by Matisse gave me the idea to cover much of a panel with leaves.
I used Turning a New Leaf & dots from Harvest Berries with 4 green inks: Spring Moss, Mint Julep, Simply Chartreuse & New Leaf. The sentiment from Take Three Summer is stamped in Memento Toffee Crunch which I think goes well with the Classic Kraft card front. I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday.
I couldn't find a PTI stamp to use for Pointillism Play, but I do want to give that technique a try in the future.
My last card is for Color Blocking. The definition I found said you combine colors opposite each other on the color wheel. I ended up with a fun, happy card using the stem stamp & flower die from Flower Fusion #9 with Lemon Tart, Winter Wisteria, Pink Lady, Mint Julep, Spring Rain & Summer Sunrise. The sentiment from Heart to Heart #2 is white embossed. I'm also entering Retro Rubber as these have been in my stash for over 3 years.
I've had a ball letting chores wait & spending all my time walking Fritz & making cards. Now I better get back to real world duties & mail some cards! Thanks so much for all the sweet comments which really make my day.
