Papertrey ink Blog Hop and Limelight Papercrafts Sketch Challenge
ETA... I realized after looking at other posts that I was dreaming this challenge. Its not distress... its text... so.... I either read this on a different blog hop, can't read, or can read and need help with comprehension, or a other multitude of other issues that I won't get into and of course I figured it after the fact...duh!!! Does the sentiment count as text??
So, my apologies for making up my own challenge (hehe)
Wow... its been a while since I was able to play along with the Papertrey ink Blog Hop, but things aligned and I already had all the materials on hand, so I'm excited that I have something to share this time around.
I also got double duty from this one and I loosely followed a really cute sketch that Mandy has up for the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge. The focus there was sentiments and I love this sentiment from my newest stamp set from Papertrey.
I used is my very newest set called In Bloom and since I hadn't been able to get the set called Friends til the End, I jumped on the chance to pick this $15 set.
The challenge for the Blog Hop was all about distress. I started with some Dark Chocolate Cardstock and then layered some Melon Berry, which I stamped with one of the flowers, and then flanked that with some patterned paper from Green Tea Leaves. I think that patterned paper is my all time favorite.
I then did some stitching, and used duo distress inks and then scissors to rough up all my edges. The inks are wonderful to work with and I highly recommend them.
Finally, I layered my sentiment, added some PTI chocolate buttons and matching ribbon. I love how this card turned out and I hope you do to.
Thanks for visiting and have a great night.
