PTI July Blog Hop

Though I have been an avid PTI fan since 2009 this is the first blog hop I have ever entered! Inspired to create for fun tonight after a busy day in the studio & a busy week ahead I took an hour out to make this card.


Using the inspiration photo above I created the card below. I really wanted to used the Mehndi Medallion Stamp, but I have not got it yet & forgot to order it with my last order! 


I could have easily chosen the butterfly & stripes element in the photo to focus upon but that wouldn't have been as much of a challenge! I chose to break out Beautiful Blooms II and used the small floral elements to create my own medallion effect. I think it worked out quite well. 

Sorry for the bad photo the light is fading after a not so sunny day here in the North East of the UK :(


I used the Clean & Simple FTL150 sketch for the basis of this card, along with PTIs Orange Zest, Ocean Tides & a lil bit of Ripe Avocado. Orange is not a colour I would normally use, let alone with Ocean Tides - way out of my comfort zone! The sentiment is from Handwritten Notes.

Anyway, off for a little workout before bed! Thanks for stopping by!

Well it seems you can hold tight on the Medallion set if you can stamp beautiful patterns like this! A gorgeous take on the inspiration pic!
