PTI Blog Hop



Inspired By.......


Hello and thanks for stopping by on the PTI Blog Hop. This months theme is getting inspired by the fabulous Design Team. While I'm super inspired by Niki's distressing, Dawn's colour combinations, Michelle's vintage touch and Debbie's colouring, I'm MOST inspired by Nichole. (and now thanks to the video I can pronounce her last name properly !!!)

I LOVED the technique she used with vellum here.


Since my release goodies arent here yet, I duplicated it as best i could with the medium flower from In Bloom. I stamped the flower in smokey shadow, and then coloured the middle a bit with a yellow chalk writer marker by Marvy uchida. I then sponged some fresh snow ink on the middle of the flower a bit like Nichole does in her post. I matted it on Kraft and then Lemon tart. Flower is a couple of punches and a sentiment from Start Prints. Lemon Tart Satin dots....quick and easy !
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop !
