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.
Supplies: Cardstock: SSS Fog, SU! Crumb Cake; Stamps and Dies: PaperTrey Ink; Inks: VersaFine Onyx Black and Smoky Gray, Gathered Twigs and Mowed Lawn Distress inks, VersaMark watermark ink; Embossing powder: Hero Arts white; Watercolor medium: ZIG clean color markers
Have a wonderful day and happy hopping!!
