Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge
Time for the monthly PTI Blog Hop which I almost forgot about, having been gone. Fortunately, a friend reminded me & I made my card last night. My original idea didn't work since I was missing one of the things I needed.
Usually I pretty much case the inspiration, but instead I just used the colors & splatter from the photo & a bit of watercoloring that's hard to see. I've had Lovely Layers for a long time & still really love it. I used the 4 dies with these cardstocks: Stormy Sea, Hibiscus Burst & Pale Peony. Each die cut was heavily brushed with clear Wink of Stella. Then I tried something new by watercoloring some detail on top with the matching ink. You can see it on the Pale Peony. I decided the Stormy Sea wasn't blue enough, so those pieces were watercolored with Enchanted Evening. Love the die cut card from the Don't Forget to Write kit. I recently got the Mat Stack 3 stamp set not realizing how much I'd love the little sentiments. One of these days I need to use the images--haha! Always tons of inspiration in the hop--can't wait to see what everyone made. I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies & Word Art Wednesday.
Before I go, thought you might enjoy seeing this sunset shot of the bay from our campsite. Thanks so much for stopping by.
