Well, it's the 25th of the month, which means it's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
This month's challenge was to use this photo as our inspiration:
Isn't it pretty?
Well, I'd like to say that my card this month came together easily, but that wouldn't be true...
I started over quite a few times!
My first idea was to do a smooshing technique on my background, but
I gave up on that after several failed attempts.
Then, I tried watercoloring my background with ink,
thinking that I'd cover it with some white butterfly diecuts, but that didn't work out either.
However, I did like how the butterflies looked layered over the watercolour,
so I started over and made this:
I used the PTI Life is Beautiful dies and watercolored the die underneath using
the inspiration photo for the colours.
Then, for my sentiment, I salvaged one of the "failed smooshing technique" panels
and diecut my Wonderful Words die from it.
I stamped my Wonderful Words Additions sentiment (inked all the way in PTI tropical teal
and half in Memento Lilac Posies).
I going to give this card to a friend of mine who's moving away.
Thanks for looking!
