Papertrey Ink October 2017 Blog Hop


Blog-hop-logo
Blog Hop InspirationIn all honesty, my first look at the PTI Blog Hop inspiration left me thinking Oh No!  Thankfully, I took a closer look & the middle row, second from the right, reminded me of an idea I had some time ago.  I stamped the trees from PTI Through the Trees on watercolor paper in Versafine Vintage Sepia & Smokey Gray using my stamp positioner.  I inked multiple times until I had the shade I wanted.  The beautiful PTI Mix & Mat Flourishes dies were just what I needed. 
The color was done with a wet brush & these PTI inks: Harvest Gold mixed with Summer Sunrise, Enchanted Evening & Amethyst Allure.  I covered the card front with a panel of brown cardstock embossed with the Canvas/Linen Impression Plate.  Vintage Photo DI was used for the splatters & I mounted the panel with fun foam.  The inside will have a Thanksgiving greeting.  In the end I came up with a card I love, so learned there's always something to be inspired by if you look hard enough.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  21. Always loved Through The Trees but now even more so after seeing your beautiful card, Greta! Sure doesn’t appear as though this was a difficult challenge for you, but I felt the same way so almost didn’t participate.
