Papertreyink June Blog Hop

Hello there!

I have been away from the blog for a while this month. I was with my children for a week at our church summer camp that was an absolute blast!

I created this card for Papertreyink June Blog Hop. I love this inspiration picture. Lots of bright colors and design. For my first try, I made a background using embossed shapes and it fell flat.

I decided to press on and try my hand at a blended background using on of the PTI Bold Blossoms Coloring Sheets.

I used several shades of Tim Holtz distress inks (tumbled glass, twisted citron, wilted violet, picked raspberry and mermaid lagoon) and tried to follow the general background colors.

After blending the background, I spritzed a little water and it leaves this cool splatter pattern.

I die cut Birthday Wishes from Aqua Mist cardstock and then cut 3 butterflies from the PTI Make It Mini Color Pop Butterflies kit. I am in love with these mini sets and am looking forward to using them all summer.

Enjoy your weekend, it is a hot on here in GA!
