Floral Caring Card – Papertrey Ink August 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

I haven’t completed a challenge in a few months. I created today’s card for the Papertrey Ink August 2016 Blog Hop Challenge.

Here is the inspiration:

As usual, I struggled with supplies for this challenge. I haven’t bought any new stamps from Papertrey Ink in a while, so you have definitely seen me use this set for a challenge before.

I stamped the flowers in navy, then masked and stamped the stems in navy. When dry, I used an aquabrush to “paint” the flowers. I wasn’t sure how well the Vintage Cream cardstock would hold up to water, so I was very careful to keep my brush wiped off fairly well.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, paper – Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride, Night of Navy, inks – Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride, Night of Navy, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn, sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, twine – MarkerPOP.

  2. Beautiful! Lovely ‘wallpaper’ of pink and navy blooms! Sweetest sentiment too!

  3. Oh, this is so pretty! Wonderful take on the inspiration photo!

  4. I love the soft watercoloring of your flowers!

  5. Love the background you stamped for this pretty design – wonderful watercoloring of the blooms! I’m sure it doesn’t matter that you used older PTI stamps – as long as some PTI are used! ( I used retired stamps on my card today!) This is lovely!

  6. It’s. So. Pretty! My (new) favourite card that you have made.

  7. Very pretty! Love all the flowers! Happy hopping!

  8. I really like this. Would you set it aside for me?

  9. What a pretty card! The black just sets that sentiment apart from the lovely background. So well coordinated 🙂
