Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

Every month, I intend to play along with the Papertrey Blog Challenge, but rarely find the time. Now that I'm all settled in my new house (i.e NEW craft room!!) I have more space and time though, so I am hoping to start participating monthly.

Because this month's fell on a Saturday, I knew I had no excuse! This month's image is so pretty. I love the regal tones. Once the inspiration piece was posted, I brainstormed the elements and PTI colours that popped out.

Inspiration photo comes from here

Here's what my brainstorm list looked like:
For Colours- Smokey Shadow, Plum Pudding, Autumn Rose, Scarlet Jewel, Saffron Spice, Terracotta Tile, Gold, and Black.

For Themes- Laurel Leaves, Handwritten Script, Gems, Banner, Grape and Figs

I took that list and pulled out all the colours that I had written down and decided on my palette. Next I sought out stamps that felt like they fit the themes, at least somewhat.


I decided on Meadow Greens and Wet Paint III.

I stamped the leaves using Royal Velvet, Saffron Spice, Autumn Rose, and Scarlet Jewel onto white cardstock. Once that was completed, I slightly inked up the corresponding leaf stamps with gold ink and gently stamped over each image. I just wanted a touch of gold on each of the leaves.

I added a Royal Velvet frame and put the whole panel onto Saffron Spice.

The final touch was the sentiment. I die cut the "sending" image from Smokey Shadow card stock and embossed the "well wishes" greeting onto a vellum strip using gold embossing powder.


Supplies (all by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Meadow Greens, Wet Pain III
Ink: Royal Velvet, Scarlet Jewel, Autumn Rose, Saffron Spice, Gold
Paper: White, Royal Velvet, Saffron Spice, Smokey Shadow, Vellum

Thanks for stopping by! Happy blog hopping!
