PTI June Blog Hop Challenge

The Blog Hop Challenge at Papertrey Ink for this month is an inspiration photo entitled "Reef" by Yellena James. It really makes me wonder how Nichole finds all of these unique and beautiful works of art online and then encourages us to be inspired. After all, this is a challenge for card makers.

A little bit of watercoloring and white heat embossing got me jumpstarted. Then I got carried away with the beautiful colors and fun stamps of Color Pops Floral. It ended with this anniversary card.

Ink: Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Enchanted Evening, Winter Wisteria, Tropical Teal, Hawaiian Shores and VersaMark
Stamps: Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals and Tag-Its #5
Dies: MFT Stitched Rectangles
Other: Canson Mixed Media Paper, Twinery Twine, White Embossing Powder, 1/8" Circle Punch and Paintbrush
