PTI June Blog Hop...

{for my Colour Me...! post, please click here}

Hello friends... time for the June PaperTrey Ink blog hop!  This time Nichole gave us several color combos, sketches and an inspiration photo to work with.  I decided to use one of the color combos and combine it with one of the sketches.

I recently got the PTI set Oopsie Daisy and the matching dies.  When I looked at the the largest flower in the set I immediately thought it would work perfectly for the sketch with the circular element.  I die cut the flower and then stamped the outline image of the flower using teal ink.  Two of the petals were cut away and the remaining petals were then stamped using golden yellow, bright pink and deep pink inks.  To make sure the large sentiment was stamped in the correct spot I placed the flower where I wanted it and then stamped the word (from Wet Paint III) using teal ink.  The remainder of the sentiment was stamped in black ink.  After stamping the sentiment I put the cardstock piece in a dots embossing folder and did some partial embossing using my trusty craft mallet.  Once that was done I adhered the flower and then added a Spring Rain button/twine embellishment. The piece was mounted on a light grey card base.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Smoky Slate; Stamps and dies:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Embossing folder:  Stampin Up!

You really rocked this challenge, Rosemary! I love how you played with the Oopsie Daisy set, and your sentiment complements the flower perfectly! Great choice for your color combo, too!
When I grow up, I want to create cards just like you :-)
