Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop Challenge

Hello beautiful crafting people!!!  I'm happy to get a chance to pop in here today and share a card I've created for the Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop!  It was so fun to just bust out some sets and have fun, not to mention the inspiration photo was gorgeous...



To create this card I started with stamping and embossing the Peonies On Parade Stamp Set in a metallic bronze embossing powder onto watercolor card stock.  I then used various PTI BYE Inks: Melon Berry, Sweet Blush, Ripe Avocado, and Classic Kraft to watercolor my images with.  I then stamped my sentiment from the Graceful Greetings in Smokey Shadow Ink onto a panel and added white embossing paste on the top left corner and bottom right corner of this panel to mimic texture in the inspirational photo.  I then trimmed my flowers and leaves and adhered them to the cardbase with a mix of glue adhesive and foam adhesive.  I then distressed the edges, added clear sequins and layered it at an angle onto a panel of Melon Berry Card Stock.

Here is a look at the inspirational photo:


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me today and Happy Crafting!
