PTI Create Along With Us: March 2016

We are almost through the first quarter of 2016, and it's time for another Create Along With Us. The challenge here is to choose something the Design Team created during the release that inspired me. These gals just knock my socks off with their creativity every. single. month, and this one is no exception. Did you happen to see this one by Laurie Willison with her gorgeous ink blending?

I was also inspired with this card from Maile Belles. Not only did I love the design, but her color choices are quite unusual and very striking. Don't you agree?

This brings me to the card I created combining Laurie's design and Maile's color scheme. I also wanted to give credit to Kay Miller because she has several cards on her blog where she added dots or ink splatters around sentiments or images. The rest is history. Now here's my card. 





Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White and SU Basic Gray
Ink: Lovely Lady, Raspberry Fizz and Smokey Shadow
Stamps: Graceful Greetings and Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals
Dies: Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals
Other: Ink Blending Tool, Gelly Roll Glitter Pen and SU Dimensionals
