First is my entry for PTI MIM Stamping Outside of the Box. I didn't get very creative as this is one of my favorite layouts.
Hard to tell, but I actually brushed 4 inks (New Leaf, Vintage Jadeite, Green Parakeet & Mint Julep) onto the masked area using Bristol paper for easier blending. Some water was splashed on for texture before I stamped the leafy image from Harvest Berries in VersaMagic Jumbo Java. The sentiment is from Take 3 Summer & I used New Leaf for some tiny splatters. The panel was matted with Dark Chocolate cardstock. No bling since I think this may go to a guy. I'm also entering CAS on Sunday, HLS CAS challenge, SSS Wednesday & Stamping Sensations.
I was inspired by the black & white stripes, 2 shades of pink, use of vellum & white on black sentiment strip. Gave me a chance to try making distressed stripes with a black COPIC marker--so fun! The bloom from PTI Friendly Flowers was stamped in Sweet Blush & Lovely Lady with the leaves die cut from vellum. I used an old Stampendous stamp for the sentiment.
Instead of enamel dots, I used Nuvo silver glitter drops. I'm also entering ATSM, CTS, Inkspirational & Penny Black & More. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
