Final PTI Challenge Cards
Hello from rainy Oregon! I'm not complaining--no big snowstorm like the east coast & a great day for crafting! I worked yesterday, so today I finished up projects for 3 of the PTI Anniversary challenges.
First is my entry for Day 2--use multiples of a single shape. My first thought was Happy Hexagons, so that's what I went with.
Fun to also use some of the printed paper I got in the big sale. To be honest, it took me forever to decide on how to arrange the hexagons. I've got quite a few left over, so hopefully they'll end up on a card, too. The sentiment from Boutique Borders: Birthday is stamped in Autumn Rose & the mat is Scarlet Jewel. I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes With Dies.
The challenge on Day 3 is to use your favorite floral set. Meadow Greens has only 1 flower & maybe it's not my all-time favorite floral set, but I haven't used it much & I do love it.
My first idea was a flop, but I was able to turn the watercolor panel over & start again. Ended up with a card I like--yah! The Distress Inks are scattered straw, wild honey, peeled paint & shabby shutters. I used a water brush to blend & then splattered some wild honey & peeled paint. Scattered straw Stickles was added to the flower center & I distressed the edges. The card front & sentiment strip are Classic Kraft & the sentiment from Through the Trees is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. I'm also entering Stamping Sensations.
Last is the project I've been thinking about for days & finally made today. It's for the packaging challenge inspired by Rebecca's eye candy. I was the designated gift wrapper for our family. My folks put the recipient's name on the outside of the box & I did the wrapping--even for my own gifts! Beautiful papers & ribbons have always appealed to me.
These days I seldom give wrapped presents, so my project is a gift card holder. I used the Monthly Moments: Journal Card Pocket #1 die. I used the eraser end of a pencil to make the gold dots & the sentiment from Lovely Layers was stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black. Fun to actually use some of my Washi tape & a little clothespin. I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
