June PTI Blog Hop...

Hey friends!!  Stopping in with a card for this month's PTI blog hop.  Nicole provided us with another intriguing inspiration piece.  As I looked at this lovely work of art I originally thought that I would use the Friendly Flowers stamp set, but my order from this month's PTI release came yesterday and I decided to use the Splits:  Thank You mini stamp set and the matching die and do some watercoloring.  I embossed the die on to my watercolor cardstock and then stamped the image with VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink using my mini MISTI.  Then I picked some colors from the inspiration piece, found corresponding colors in my Gansai Tambi watercolor palette and colored up the flowers and leaves.  Once I had the look I wanted I let the piece dry and then stamped the sentiment (from the PTI set Garden Grace) in VersaFine Onyx Black.  I would have used the sentiment from the Splits:  Thank You set, but I'm trying to get a little stash of birthday cards so I used the sentiment from Garden Grace instead.  Die cut the piece, added some Pretty Pink Posh sparkly clear sequins and then adhered the panel to a light grey card base.  Simple, but I really like how it turned out.
 
Thanks for stopping by...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  light grey, Ranger watercolor cardstock; Stamps:  PaperTrey Ink; Dies:  PaperTrey Ink and AJVD; Inks:  VersaFine;  Watercolors:  Kuretake Gansai Tambi; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh
