May 2016 Blog Hop Challenge


 Time for PTI's May Blog Hop, and Nichole has given us this inspiration


Nichole gave us free reign to use any of the colors of the photo,
any stamps we choose, and experiment with the fonts for our 
sentiment. 'Out of our comfort zone', were her last words!


One layer cards are hardest for me, definitely struggle 
to not add just one more: 
pop up somewhere, frame it, bling or button!
I played with the Simple Seashells, watercoloring their 3 steps, 
masking as I went.
Sand Swatch, and Colorful Words.
Fireworks Bahama Blue & Summer Sky
(and couldn't help adding just a few sequins!)
Hawaiian Shores Cardstock
PTI Inks:
Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding, Aqua Mist,
Hawaiian Shores, Winter Wisteria, Classic Kraft, Fine Linen
Hero Arts Shadow Ink: Wet Cement

Can't wait to see all the entries!
