PTI Blog Hop Challenge June 2017

How can it be the 25th of June already? It seems like it was just Christmas! Anyway, it's time for another Blog Hop Challenge at Papertrey Ink. Here's the lovely inspirational piece provided on Nichole's blog.

Because we had such a busy Saturday scheduled, my mind told me I needed to get this card made Friday night and ready to post for Saturday's blog hop. Apparently, I was skipping over the 24th...thinking Saturday was the 25th, and it was way past my bedtime when I finished. Without further ado, here's my card. 



I started with a Stamper's Select White card base and added a strip at the bottom to ground my vases. This strip was embossed using the Linen/Canvas Impression Plate and then blended with Soft Stone ink and a blending tool. The vases were also ink blended with Melon Berry and Pinefeather, respectively, to which I added Glossy Accents for a watery effect. The Bitty Bouquet die cuts were stamped using Melon Berry, Bright Buttercup and Simply Chartreuse. I paint splattered some Pinefeather ink on the card base before assembling the card. One flower stem and the Melon Berry vase are adhered using SU Dimensionals. And that's a wrap. 


Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments.
