PTI Cards

I hadn't done Distress Ink smooshing for awhile, so pulled out these inks:  milled lavender, seedless preserves, spun sugar, victorian velvet, squeezed lemonade, scattered straw, wild honey, shabby shutters & peeled paint.  After my panels were dry, I added splatters of Gansai Tambi metallic gold & white watercolors.  
The flowers & leaves from PTI Into the Blooms II were die cut & arranged on a white panel with black splatters.  The sentiment from PTI Balloons & Banners was stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  Border Bling: Skinny Diagonals frame was painted with the white watercolor.  
I finished off with black enamel dots & gold sequins.  This card was entered via IG into SSS WednesdayPTI The Great Cover-Up challenge to make a birthday card.  I'm also entering Time Out Challenges 8th BD Celebration.
Edited to add:  Thanks to Linda, I'm also entering DCD.

My next card used leftover flowers & leaves from the last card.  This time I arranged them in one of the PTI Vogue Vases which I double embossed with SSS Cream ep. 
I used the same powder to emboss the sentiment from PTI Scripted. The little gold bow is from PTI Gathered Garden & I added gold sequins, Rainstones & a couple scored lines.
Fun to see what a different look is achieved with Dark Indigo cardstock for the background. I entered SSS Wednesday & the PTI challenge to make a Spring Floral card via IG. I'm also entering Time Out Challenges 8th BD via Flickr.

Two lovely cards, Greta. The ink smooshing makes for a great die cutting base. The blooms are lovely on both cards. I am amazed at how solid the embossed vase is, amazing.
