PTI Marathon!

I've been having such fun working on PTI challenges. Need to get my card entered for the MIM Spritzed Stamps challenge.   I'll also include the SAF cards I've completed so far.  Don't think you need the directions, so I'll just list the products I used--all PTI stamps.  Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
I've spritzed stamps, but not with layering images like this bloom from Rosie Posie.  The little tag & sentiment are from Tiny Tags. The inks are PTI Lovely Lady, Berry Sorbet, Limeade Ice, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold & Memento Toffee Crunch.
Pierre-Auguste-Renoir-card
For Master Color Recipes I chose the one inspired by Renoir.  My background was done with Distress Paint Wild Honey softened with Antique Linen & then watercolored with Hawaiian Shores.  
I used the other colors to stamp the images from Friendly Flowers. The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia & the mat is Berry Sorbet cardstock.
Next is Starry Night--such a fun card to make! My PTI inks are Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky, Amethyst Allure & Ocean Tides. When I tried to add more ink with a waterbrush it looked like my sky was ruined. I let it dry & then did more blending of the inks & it came out just like I wanted.  
I used a foam brush with black acrylic paint for the land & trees. The stars are splatters of white paint & brushed pewter Distress Stain.  I added Stardust Stickles to the die cut word from Don't Forget to Write.
Gold is on trend now, but I've always loved it. My card for Gilded In Gold uses dies & a stamp from Don't Forget to Write. The Liquid Leaf is beautiful & easy to use.  I clear embossed "Note" for shine.
For Floral Impressionism I used The Sweet Life, Don't Forget to Write & Text Style.  
The inks are Sweet Blush, Melon Berry, Mink Julep, Spring Moss, Fine Linen & Memento Toffee Crunch. It did take a couple tries to figure out which of the stamp layers to use, but I love the end result--soft & feminine. I'm also entering the 30 Day Coloring challenge.
Thanks for sticking with me--last card is for Mastering Drips & Splatters.  
I couldn't resist trying the yarn dipped in watercolor. Even though I mixed the paint with more water & got a different look, I really like it.  I watercolored a scrap of the wc paper so my die cut word from Don't Forget to Write would match the blue splatters. The mat & sentiment are Royal Velvet.  I'm also entering The Playground & Double D.  Take care if you're in a heatwave.  I won't complain after experiencing the high humidity of the East coast!

  11. I love everyone of these. The Starry Night is just beautiful. I just watched the video of that last night. Your trees came out just perfect and the stars are starry. I need to get on the gold bandwagon because that is just stunning and I love the scalloped edge of the card.
