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.
