PTI January Blog hop
It's that time of the month again. Papertrey Ink is having their monthly blog hop. It is always so much fun to see everyone's creations. We were challenged to pick our favorite project from 2011 and create a card that was inspired by our chosen project. We could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets used. I chose this card that I created for Make-it-Monday: create a card/project background using a non-background stamp.
I decided to keep to the design of the card and use similar colors. The first card used Raspberry Fizz, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores ink while the second card used Pure Poppy, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist and Raspberry Fizz. The sentiment is from Heart Prints and the focal image is from 2010 Love Tags. There are so many fabulous images in this set, it was so hard to choose which one to use for the challenge. You will be seeing this stamp set on the blog again for sure.
In making this card, I really did play around a bit trying to change up the color for the card base, the color of the cardstock and the color of the focal image. When it was all said and done, what looked best to me ended up being very similar to my first card. What can I say? I tried.
