papertrey october blog hop


It's that time of the month over at Papertrey! Whaddyathink of this inspiration?


Almost overwhelming, eh? Then I locked in on the panel top row, second from the left.
And these happened :)



I used PTI On the Farm and dies for #1 and Heart Squared and the teensy blooms from Choose Joy for #2. Altenew ink cubes - Sea Shore and Glacier Caves - provided the perfect tones of blue/teal. I inked up the stamps multiple times, usually only inking partially to achieve depth like in the inspiration. (Thanks, MISTI!)

For the other accents I chose the red/pink and tan/butterscotch color palettes that are also in the inspiration. The hearts die cut from watercolored paper are Verve Heart Quartett.

Hope you enjoyed. Look forward to seeing what you created too!

Absolutely love your cards! Simple yet stunning. Just so cute the way you added the cows to the "not so cow" card. It works so perfectly.

Gorgeous cards for TIMI, but 2 projects in one post? See the rules. It's a pity, as I wanted to vote on your entry. Better next time :) Ellie
