WCMD Challenges from PTI

Nichole Heady at PTI had these four challenges for the World Card Making Day. It was like globe trotting with cards :) Lots of fun.

WCMD Challenge #1 - Japan

I did not have any Asian Themed PTI Stamp sets. So I used the combination of Boxes, Bags and Tags and Beyond Basic Borders. I created this card bases on my feel of Japan and its art and colors :)

Stamp - PTI Boxes, Bags and Tags, PTI Beyond Basic Border
Paper - PTI Ocean Tides Bitty Boxes DP, PTI Rustic Cream CS, PTI Pure Poppy CS
Ink - PTI Pure Poppy, PTI New Leaf
Other - SU Word Window Punch, White Gel Pen, Sakura Star Burst Pen

WCMD Challenge #2 - Mexico

I used the Guidelines 2 Stamp set to create a tiled background and used it with Lemon Tart Bitty boxes DP. Some how these colors always convey Mexico to me :)

Stamp - PTI Guidelines 2, PTI Vintage Picnic
Paper - PTI Bitty boxes DP in Lemon Tart, Guidelines 2 CS, PTI Ripe Avocado CS
Ink - PTI Pure Poppy, Ranger Distress Ink - Faded Jeans, PTI New Leaf
Other - PTI Vintage Buttons

WCMD Challenge #3 - India

I used the Guidelines stamp set to create the background and then added some bling to it. Kept it simple with juts the sentiment (which I printed from the computer). I added a few pure poppy buttons too. I used a combination of Orange and red Inks as lot of Indian Saree's have this color combination over pale blue background :)

It might be hard to see the bling on this card as the photograph might not be capturing it well. But it looks beautiful IRL.

Stamp - PTI Guidelines
Ink - PTI Pure Poppy, PTI Orange Zest, Versamark
Paper - PTI Aquamist and Pure Poppy card stock
Other - PTI Vintage Buttons, Gem stones

Challenge #4 - Australia

I was influenced by the reds and browns in the Australian art and plus I used the challenge of dotting the stamped images with White Gel Pen. :)

Stamp - PTI Background Basics Retro, PTI Flower Garden
Paper - PTI Kraft, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate CS, PTI White CS
Ink - PTI Dark Chocolate
Other - Nestabilities, Ribbon, White Gel Pen
