PTI Turns 7

Today starts the festivities on the Papertrey Ink blog – they turn 7 this year!

The first challenge is a sketch/color combo. They have 7 options of each and you pick and choose your combo. I went with color #6 (kraft, aqua, hawaiian shores, new leaf, avocado) and the third sketch. I picked the sketch first and decided on which stamps I wanted to use then found a color scheme that went with it.

I kept the colors on the light side. I used aqua & hawaiian to color the water and new leaf to color the land. The whole ocean is colored, the lighter parts just didn’t photograph well. The sentiment is stamped in avocado.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. What a pretty card! I just bought this stamp this week so I have been looking for ideas. It’s perfect for this sketch. The color scheme you picked really suits the stamp.
