May 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop
This is my first blog hop to participate in, ever. I have become so enamored of Papertrey Ink products. At this posting I am now the proud owner of two sets of Papertrey stamp sets and a few dies as well. There will be many more finding their way into my craft room.
This month's blog hop challenge is a group of "bouquet builder" color schemes for us to choose from and incorporate into a card. Now I have no actual floral stamp sets yet but I do have a lovely leaf set, the Leaf Prints Stamp Set. I also (just got them today) have the Mat Stack 2 Collection which is a collection of gorgeous frames and sentiments as well as the die to cut the labels out of.
I'm a newbie to this and of course as soon as I photographed this card I thought, "now why didn't I try this or that?" Oh well, I am learning and took great pleasure in playing with these new stamps and dies. I think I am going to enjoy Papertrey Ink.
The color scheme I chose is:
My card is not of the exact colors but I did my best to attempt to duplicate them with what I have. I love the colorful earthy tones of this group.
The card: I stamped this leaf stamp in Distress inks and then stamped over them again with a varied color and also sprayed the inked up stamps with a light mist of water to give it a water colored appearance. I then took a water brush and lightly went over each leaf to blend the colors a little.
As I become more savvy at making links I will include links in this post and future ones.
