Hey friends!! Happy Wednesday!! I have a post up on the AJVD blog. If you want to check it out, please click here. Back in February I got the PTI Color Pop Floral Make It Market mini kit (say that fast three times, lol!), but hadn't gotten around to using it. When I saw this week's ColourQ combo I decided to pull out the kit and create a card. Since one of the ColourQ colors this week is kraft I used one of the kraft cardstock sheets included in the kit. The flowers were stenciled using Ranger Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries distress ink and then the flower centers were added using the same ink with the stamps. I don't own a ton of stencils, but I can say that the PTI stencils that came with the kit are very sturdy and I really like that. Some stencils can be a bit well... flimsy and hard to keep in place. The leaves were stenciled using Stampin Up! Coastal Cabana and then the centers stamped with the same ink. I really like how the stenciling turned out. The sentiment came from another PTI Make It Market mini kit... Garden Gild. I stamped the large word happiness and then added the smaller sentiments around it. Once everything was done I die cut the panel using an A Jillian Vance Design Rectangle Backdrop die (the largest one) and then simply adhered it to my card base. Since this is a spring like card I think I will also add it to the current ChouxChoux Paper Art challenge which is Easter/Spring.
