OMBRE Watercolor Background

This was a really fun challenge over at PaperTrey Ink. It was an Ombre Watercolor Background. As soon as I saw it I thought of my blue hydrangeas. My inlaws are in RI right now and that is where I fell in love with these flowers so I made this card to send to them. I used TH Distress inks Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, and Mermaid Lagoon. The stamp sets were Friendship Jar Summer Fillers and Garden Variety for the sentiment.

This week the PaperTrey Ink challenge was to use inchies. It's a fun, easy technique that I forget about. I made this card for my father in law who has a birthday on July 3rd. Not sure I like how the splats turned out but you don't have a lot of control over splats.

Blog Hop

The PaperTrey Ink Blog hop had and inspirational photo and it was perfect for a card I needed to send to my inlaws before they leave for a long trip. I focused on the colors and a few of the shapes.

Graffiti Word Art

This Papertrey Ink challenge was so much fun this week! I'm not really familiar with graffiti art but after watching Lexi's video I was all in. I used three stamp sets: You Deserve Flowers, Mixed Bouquet, and an old favorite for the splat background Grunge Me. Can't wait to send this card out. I might even make another one using different colors.

Stitched Stems

This weeks challenge at PaperTrey Ink is close to my heart. I love sewing on cards. I prefer using my sewing machine so this challenge reminded me there are other ways to sew and add lecture to my cards. I used oxide inks on the background and not sure I liked how it turned out. Might have to try again with just a clean background. Fun challenge anyway.

Blog Hop

This is the first time I have done the blog hop and I'm very excited to see all the cards. The photo inspiration was so pretty. I picked out the blue, a little wood grain, and the flowers. Fun, fun.

I'm creating along with PTI today. I used the pink color palette for this card like Amy did on her Apple card.
