Did you know PaperTrey Ink is celebrating their 5th Anniversary? I didn’t get a chance to read yesterday’s posting until today but at least today I get a chance to play along with the freebies the DT graciously provided.
Oh No! I just realized I used the wrong freebies! Oh well, I love my card anyway!
I’m using Melissa Bickford’s “A Little Note” digi stamp for my card. I die cut the clouds out of the DP causes a negative die effect – it’s the white matting that gives the clouds their white appearance, sneaky, huh? My original plan had a ribbon running horizontally across the entire card but it left too much unused space so I scraped my whole idea. I had already separated the verse from the image when I printed out the stamp so now I was on to plan B.
I remembered with my last PTI purchase I ordered the Flower Fusion stamp set along with the matching dies. I just noticed this set was designed by Melissa Bickford – it must be karma, it was meant to be I guess 🙂 I’m loving the new PTI inks so I used a variety of colors for the flowers and stem.
I colored the image with copics – so nice and simple, no shading needed!!! Now that I didn’t have a ribbon running the entire width of the card I decided to use two different ribbons to fill in the blank area of the image and sentiment.
Do you just love happy accidents – this entire card is one but you know I think it turned out even better than my original idea!
Thanks for stopping by! Dee
