PTI June 2011 Blog Hop


The blog hope theme this time is an inspirational photo (shown below). As soon as I saw this photo, it reminded me of the card that Nichole Heady had done for the June stamp release using copics and I had to give it a try (Loved that technique). Plus the three open boxes reminded me of the take three die :) You can see the entire list of participants on Nichole's Blog.


So, here is my take on this inspirational photo, I think the wall hangers are more like dragon flies, but I thought the butterflies worked well too.

I wanted my card to look like I took a bucket of paint and then poured it on the card stock from top. My copic lines are not that clean or that well blended (I was using the chisel tip), but I still like the overall effect of the card and will for sure give this another try. Maybe stamp it with a background stamp and then use that piece of card stock or something like that.


Thanks for stopping by.
Supplies:
Stamp - PTI Handwritten Notes
