Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge

So, here we are on August 25, and it's time for another Blog Hop for Papertrey Ink. You can see all the details here. Once again, we have another fabulous image to encourage us to play along.

My first thought was to get out my paintbrushes, but instead I pulled out my new Garden Gate stencil and ink blending tool. This is what I came up with blending Melon Berry and Distress Spiced Marmalade. My sentiment is done in Enchanted Evening. I also blended a bit of Enchanted Evening on the Vellum leaves. Added in five sequins for a little bling.






Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments! Can't wait to see what everyone else created this month.

Beautiful blending & those leaves are one of my favorites! I read what Nicole wrote when the theme was announced & then forgot it. Maybe next time I'll pay more attention--haha!
