Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge
Sneaking in under the wire with a card for the August Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. That image was just too amazing to pass up being inspired by...
I started by stamping the beautiful blooms from In Bloom with peach ink. I then loosely painted them with watercolor, going outside the lines. I splattered some peach paint over the blooms and after this panel was dry, I stamped some leaves and a sentiment from Communique Curves in navy ink. I must admit, the panel was quite larger, but the navy ink got everywhere and I ended up with a tiny panel that I backed with dimensional adhesive and adhered a strip of navy cardstock to make up the difference of the width of the card.
I was about to give up, but I really liked the artistic feel of the blooms and leaves and just ended up with a simple layout.
