Hurrah--it's time for the PTI Blog Hop! I have to work today & tomorrow, but fortunately I was able to get my card made yesterday. The inspiration this month is beautiful & gave me a chance to use my new PTI Fancy Foliage. I began by debossing a panel of watercolor paper with a Darice leafy embossing folder to try out Nina-Marie's technique. I smooshed it with Distress Inks dried marigold, wild honey, peeled paint & forest moss. Then I sprayed with water to blend the inks & gold mist for a gorgeous metallic shine.
The sentiment is stamped in Ripe Avocado & cut with the coordinating die. I covered the card front with Ripe Avocado, trimmed the panel, tied on a bow & added gold PPP sequins. There's always lots of inspiration--enjoy the hop! I'm also entering Allsorts, CropStop, Dies R Us & SSS Monday.
