I host challenges over on PTI once a week – ok, not really once a week. Participation is slim so I really don’t get excited about posting, so sometimes I forget. And other times I post and never get around to making a card for my own challenge *ugh*. So I am trying to catch up!
This past week was an inspiration challenge (cmwc57) – a bedspread at the Pottery Barn. The colors were autumnal and the leaves reminded me of a recently release PTI set.
The layout is for Beate’s weekend sketch (wsc100), so my card is a little square card.
The leaves were done by inking the leaves with 3 colors of ink and spritzing with water then stamping. The ink is PTI, and I’ve learned that Palette ink doesn’t work the best with this technique. The good news is the orange did beautifully and it is their new pigment ink, inwhich all new colors (and retro-ly the old colors) will be available – yeah!
Ink: Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest;
Paper: Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, Vanilla;
Other: Scarlet ribbon, Slice Basics 2 (MM), label dies (SU), Modern Label punch (SU);
cute card! i don’t think i knew you were doing challenges over there! you’re holding out 😛 let me know next time and i will play!
This card is fantastic! You should post your challenges here, too – I would totally play along. You always have such great ideas. I don’t own any PTI, or I’d play along on their site.
