Happy yet-another-snow-day day! My kids are home again today on a snow day. Unlike Monday where they were out making a snowman, today they are in because we have freezing rain and slop. I know I’m not alone when I say “They need to go to school!” This winter has been brutal in so many places in the US.
PaperTrey Ink is celebrating their 7th anniversary and it looks like the February release is going to be an awesome one. They have some color & sketch challenges. Now, I must admit, color challenges are not my favorite. I often stumble on them when there are more than 4 colors involved. However, I’m proud to say I managed to make one work!
When I looked over the color combos, I knew I could do the first one. I pulled out my Guide Lines set, which is perfect for using lots of colors on a card. I do not have PTI inks, so I selected colors that worked the best. I stamped 4 lines of grid and then my image in a gradient-like fashion. My base is Hawaiian Shores and the Summer Sunrise is embossed with the Cuttlebug Tartan folder. I added in a bow of satin Hawaiian Shores and a sentiment from Simple Little Things.
The color combo and sketch I chose are pictured below.
Thinking of You: PTI Guide Lines, Simple Little Things; PTI Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, white; Memento Tangelo, a*muse bellini, mama elephant sunshine, orangeade; Cuttlebug Tartan embossing folder, Word Window punch, Modern Tag punch, ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
