Acorns & Patterns

 
It is the 25th of the month and that means PTI Blog Hop! This month I completely forgot – but thanks to my trusty blog reader I saw the post and had time to whip up a card (thankfully they allow submissions until 11:30pm ET, lol).

The inspiration photo for this month’s hop is quite adorable. What caught my eye were all the different patterns and textures so that is where I started.

While I was flipping through my pattern paper I realized that one of the recent PTI packs had a pattern very similiar to what is in the photo (the “floor” piece). I added more patterns using the Woodgrain impression plate to my card base, and Houndstooth stamping to my Mat Stack. I do want to say that lining up the Houndstooth was much easier than other background images – I think that extra space they added to the acrylic around the image definitely helps.

As for texture, the inspiration showed felt leaves and acorns…and that is what I used too. I had to use Chartreuse for the green because they haven’t introduced the Avocado felt yet 🙁 I do hope now that ink is settled (other than getting in the rest of the colors) that PTI finishes issuing felt (I really want some of those older colors!).

Happy Thanksgiving
