april pti blog hop...

Happy PTI blog hop day everyone!!  Nichole gave us a lovely inspiration photo and when I saw it I immediately thought of my Make It Market Mini Kit Color Pop: Floral.  I love the stencils that come with the Color Pop kits.  They are large, sturdy and cover your entire piece of cardstock!  I pulled out my distress inks and used Spun Sugar for the large flowers, Scattered Straw for the leaves and Carved Pumpkin for the small flowers.  After apply each of the layers with my ink blender I added the stems in the leaves using Weathered Wood, the centers of the pink flowers with Wild Honey and the centers of the little flowers with Carved Pumpkin.  I die cut the piece with the largest die in the Double Ups Rectangles set.  The sentiment was die cut from woodgrain cardstock and adhered to the panel.  I die cut a piece of lighter gray cardstock as a mat and layered the two on a white cardstock base.  Must admit that I wasn't super happy with the card when I first finished it, but it is starting to grow on me, lol! 

Have a wonderful day... can't wait to see what everyone has created! 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, light gray, white woodgrain, Make It Market mini kit printed cardstock; Stamps, dies and stencils:  PaperTrey Ink; Inks:  Distress inks

Total stunner, so beautifully done! I always "judge" a card made for a challenge on whether it's a good card, one that I would send to someone. "Fitting the challenge" always is secondary. This is one fabulous card, gorgeous to look at, plus it's perfect for the challenge. Winner. :)
