May 2014 PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop



I've been out and about most of the day today and seeing all the Paper Trey Ink Blog Hop activity and decided once we got home tonight that I still had time to participate. 8-) (That's my nerd smiley.)

Here is the inspiration photo for using Aqua & Melon on your project. I love these colors together but don't really use them often. Not sure why....


I pulled out -- well that's not true - my Wet Paint III stamp set is new and is still out on my desk. Since it's new I'm giving it lots of love this week. So I did break down and buy some watercolor paper today. I really like the look and want to play around with that technique more, but I tend to do little more than make a big mess so I bought some. This card took me about 3 tries to get happy with it, but whatever -- it's all good. I can take it. Sometimes I have 3 tries and still looks like junk and I have to leave disgusted, so this is better than it could have been. =)

I am using this for a friend with a new sales job that has signed her first contracts. She is so excited. And I'm excited for her. =)
After inking the stamps I spritzed them with water. I just rounded the corners and added a few matching dots. I didn't have PTI Aqua and Melon colors so I have used CTMH's Juniper and Sorbet.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
God Bless,
