It's PTI Blog Hop Time! Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting to check out my card! (This is my second post today, so be sure to scroll down! :-)
This month's challenge was to create your own background using a PTI stamp set. Well, to be honest, this is not really a big challenge for me since I do this all the time! (In fact, I think almost everything I have posted in the past week has had some kind of stamped background!) Anyway, I love doing this - it really allows you to make your project exactly how you want it.
To be honest, this card kind of came from leftovers. I still had remnants from Dawn's color challenge laying on my desk and let's be honest - that color combo is pretty much amazing. So, I decided to go with a similar color palette.
I stamped the Damask pattern in New Canvas ink onto Summer Sunrise. I love this soft effect from the New Canvas. I added a leftover strip of Raspberry Fizz on the side. Then I took a scrap of white and stamped a background in Summer Sunrise ink using one of the Life flowers. Then I stamped in the sentiment (also from Life) with Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Fizz inks. That got trimmed and mounted on another scrap - this time Dark Chocolate. I also added a little sparkle to the flowers using a Sakura glitter pen. All this got put on a Kraft card base (4.25" square - my current favorite size). The sentiment is mounted on foam pop dots. And the ribbon is from Taylored Expressions. (For some god forsaken reason I didn't order the PTI Dark Chocolate swiss dot ribbon! That or I just can't find it!) Anyway, here's a closer view. Hope you like my card! Check out my previous posts from this week to see some other favorite backgrounds I have created - this is one of my favorites.
