PTI June Blog Hop...

Hello!!  June 25th has rolled around and that means time for the PTI blog hop!!  And we have another beautiful photo to inspire us.   I decided to go with the ombre' look of the jars and also use the colors found in the flowers.  The photo just said "summer" to me and since I have never used my PTI Friendship Jar Summer stamp set (sad... I know!) I got it out to make my card.  I stamped the jar on watercolor paper and then colored the water with a blue ZIG marker.  Once that was done I added the stems using Gathered Twigs and Mowed Lawn distress inks.  The hydrangea was stamped on watercolor paper with watermark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then very carefully watercolored the image with pink and green ZIGs.  Once it was dry I die cut it with the matching die.  The jar was grounded by using a brown ZIG marker and blending out the color.  I then die cut the panel with the large die from the Mix and Mat Herringbone die set.  I decided to add the little photo corners using kraft cardstock.  The hydrangea was adhered, the sentiment (from Cutting Garden) was stamped and then the piece was adhered to a light gray cardstock base.   I will also add this to the current Time Out challenge of celebrations.


Have a wonderful day and happy hopping!!
