Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge
Hello, hello! Please let me present Creamsicle Blooms. Doesn't that sound dreamy? I'm playing along in the Papertrey Ink May 2016 Blog Hop. The inspiration picture was quite dreamy too!
I was inspired by the colors of the orange/red popsicles along with the peach and yellow. I stamped some of the images from In Bloom onto Bristol Smooth paper with light gray ink and zigged them up with a mix of dark pink, pink, peach and orange markers and waters. I then added a touch of mixed gray colors to the leaves and then splatters with the same gray.
I stamped the sentiment in a darker gray across the blooms similar to the inspiration picture sentiment .(Goodness, this step was difficult, I feared the whole time I'd mess up and have to redo the blooms! Good thing the MISTI helped me out). I finished the card by adhering the panel, along with some woodgrain cardstock and a strip of colored paper onto a white cardbase.
I look forward to hopping along today! If you'd like to see a quick glance of some of my other projects, I'd be tickled if you check out my Instagram feed and maybe follow if you'd like!
I'm also playing along in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
