PTI 11th Anniversary Day 1: Sketch Challenge
Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 11th anniversary this month. I chose Lizzie's sketch for the first challenge after much deliberation. Despite its sweet simplicity, I spent so long designing my card today that I lost the daylight and had to resort to taking my picture indoors. I will try to get a better one tomorrow if it doesn't rain.
(edited to add better photo)
I've had Beautiful Brushstrokes since its limited re-release last year, but had yet to use it on a card. It's such a pretty set! I stamped the large rose image in Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, and Pure Poppy inks on white cardstock. I put a touch of White Blizzard Nuvo drops in the center. I stamped the leaves in New Leaf and Olive Twist inks. I added little heart sprigs from the Bloom & Grow mini kit in Olive Twist and Pure Poppy.
On a white card base, I layered two white cardstock pieces cut with the Chevron Vertical Cover Plate die. I stamped a sentiment from Signature Greetings on a white cardstock strip and adhered it near the bottom. Then I arranged my floral pieces on top. Simple and pretty!
