It's May 25, and time for PTI's Blog Hop!
Hope you have a cup of your favorite, and are snuggled somewhere comfy,
I have a lot to show you.
1st of all, Nichole's inspiration:
Endless inspiration, right?
Color, confetti, ombre, square shape, graphic style... endless!
Initially I went with blocks of color, and the mosaics die from the Ancient Rome set
in Stamp-A-Faire '14. Haven't seen this set since last summer!
Lizzie showed us how to use the die to create a stencil.
Re-inkers colored translucent Wendy Vecchi embossing paste.
So much fun revisiting this Stamp-A-Faire set!
What would it look like in warm colors?
Thank You from: Thank You Kindly,
gold scribble die cut from: Circle Scribbles.
Oh that was fun, but, um, there's more.
Next card done in pastels,
and cascading color.
Clear embossed the butterflies first, then sponge inked the bg colors.
Die cut and embossed the smaller butterfly from: Make It Market You Are a Masterpiece
Double Ended Banner, Thank Your from: Topiary Trio.
That fun ombred side panel paper also from MIM: You're a Masterpiece.
And then my PTI order came!
Couldn't wait to play with Make It Market: Garden Gild.
With watercolor paper, and watercolors, ombred a full sheet, before die cutting the cover plate,
(use a shim!). Then watercolored a background to place the top and bottom corners,
which were cut away from the rim.
Just had to see what that gorgeous cover plate looked like
die cut in white.
This time on an inked bg.
Are you still with me?
Just one more!
Feather Finery embossed in gold (dots in silver),
Thank You: Thank You Kindly,
gold stripe bottom from: Gold Luxe Foil Pattern Paper
If you've stayed with me through all 6 cards,
I wish I had a medal to give you!
We who play each month love seeing the creativity and LOVE
being inspired by each other, (don't we?)
I'm off to visit all the other entrys.
Have a wonderful, restful Memorial Day,
and don't forget to thank God for all those who made this
day of enjoying our freedom possible!
