PTI August Blog Hop
It is time again for PTI Blog Hop. This month's blog hop challenge is to get inspired by Autumn..the textures, colors and Patterns.
For me Autumn is always about colorful foliage and pumpkins. I did not have any PTI Pumpkin stamp, so decided to with the colorful foliage. I used the tree trunk for PTI's Father Knows best stamp set and created my own tree. I used the maple leaf from the PTI mailbox greetings to create the tree. I was kind of very happy with this tree and my first attempt at shaded inking. I inked the stamp first in Summer Sunrise and then in Pure Poppy and then stamped it.
I also used the mailbox and colored it in fall colors using Copics. :) A simple sentiment and ribbon completed the card.
Here is my card,
Stamp - PTI Mailbox Greetings, PTI Father Knows Best
Paper - PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI White CS, PTI Vintage Cream CS
Ink - PTI Summer Sunrise, PTI Pure Poppy, Burnt Umber, Memento Black, Copics
Other - Nestabilities, PTI Summer Sunrise Ribbon, Generic Black Pin, SU Slit Punch
