PTI March 2012 Blog Hop
Hello Friends, Happy Sunday. It has been a while since I participated in PTI Blog Hop. I just happen to love the colors in the inspiration photo this time and I was trying to figure out a card design for the Cas-ual Friday Challenge #45 - CAS Card using Pastels and Black and the PTI Inspiration image was perfect starting point.
I used PTI Background Basics: Chevron stripes and stamped it using Memento Summer Sky and Dandelion Inks. I do not have any PTI pastel inks yet. Then I stamped the sentiment from PTI 2012 Anniversary set Pretty Peonies in PTI Snow white Ink. The peony was again stamped in Memento Summer Sky ink. The card came together quite easily and will for sure try this with other color combinations. I tried embossing the sentiment in white, but somehow I always have trouble doing this. So, I left it with this white ink as is.
I was influenced by the color and chevron stripes in the PTI Inspiration image.
