PTI 10th Anniversary Challenges

10-year-logo
I made a couple more projects for the PTI 10th Anniversary challenges. First is my entry for Lexi's card & envelope challenge.  
I used one of my favorite techniques--emboss resist. The stamp set is Splits: Just a Note & the inks are PTI Aqua Mist & Ocean Tides with Brilliance Starlite Black for the sentiment.  I added Stickles to the dots--so pretty in real life.
I sponged with the same inks on the front & flap of the envelope, but kept it a bit lighter.  It's already in the mail to hopefully bring a lift to one of my blogging friends.  I'm also entering Time Out.


We celebrated our 35th anniversary in 2014 by going to a Seattle Seahawks football game.  It was so much fun & the woman sitting behind us was kind enough to snap a picture which turned out to be one of my favorites.  I mounted it to a decorated panel so I could sit it on a table. Somehow it ended up on the floor & before I knew it Fritz did a number on one corner.  The challenge to incorporate a picture gave me the motivation to re-do it.
I went much simpler this time & actually like it better.  The heart border die is from SSS & is brushed with Wink of Stella. PTI Wonderful Words: Love die cut is lightly watercolored with Distress Ink faded jeans & brushed with Wink of Stella. I'm catching up on my blog reading & truly do appreciate your taking time to visit my blog.
