Happy Wednesday friends! It’s the 25th of the month (uh, where did July go?), and that means it’s time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!
This month, Nichole posted a colour challenge, inspired by a beautiful photo. We were encouraged to use florals along with the palette, as well. Here is our inspiration board:
Is that beautiful, or what? But here’s the catch…. I literally only have one of those colours in my PTI arsenal. And at that, I only have the inkpad – no cardstock, ribbons, etc… I am still slowly collecting PTI colours, since I’ve got so much from other manufacturers! No worries, a few more of these are in my latest order, currently finding it’s way to me!
In the meantime…
It wasn’t an option for me to skip the hop – I loved the inspiration far too much to pass it up! So I did the next best thing to PTI products, and used patterned paper that followed the colour story pretty closely!
Pretty close, right? I know there isn’t a lot of PTI going on here – but I literally had 30 minutes and no supplies to put this one together, so this is where I landed! *wink*
Here is a close up of the embellishment on my bow… the flower was trimmed from one of the vintage laces I found in that tiny little shop in Seattle a couple of weeks ago. It’s this beautiful, 4 inch wide trim… and it’s perfect for cutting apart and using as different elements – I have another card coming your way in a day or two, and I’ll show you what I mean!
Thank you so much for stopping by – enjoy the rest of your hop!
