PTI July Blog Hop - with catalog inspired colors
PTI July blog hop was twist on text integrated into our projects. I started out with creating a card with crayon resist background using PTI Background Basics - Text and Garden of life. I kind of liked that effect as well. But when I saw my finished card, I realized that I had glued on the text portion upside down. It might not make a difference, but some how I was not happy with it. So, I had to create another card. Here is my card for the blog hop.
Here is a closeup of the flowers - I cut them out with cuttlebug, stamped with the PTI Background basics - text and then crumpled them a bit for a vintage look and added a New Leaf button in the center.
Here is the catalog that inspired the colors of the birdhouse,
And the copics I used for the birdhouse,
I decided to add my first attempt as well...even thought the text is facing upside down. I some how liked this card. I used glossy card stock and first stamped the PTI Background basics - text in stazon black ink. Once that dried, I stamped the flower from PTI Garden of Life. Then I colored it with crayon and dabbed Berry Sorbet ink all over the card stock. I added a simple ribbon, sentiment and some flowers that I did the same treatment as the first card, cut with cuttlebug and stamped with PTI Background Basics - Text.
