June PTI Blog Hop!
June's challenge is to use your favorite PTI color combo! Well, here's mine: RIPE AVOCADO, SPRING MOSS, RASPBERRY FIZZ & HIBISCUS BURST!
Nichole asked participants to put their color combo up top on their post, in BOLD. I wish I knew how to make those color thingies--you know, like paint samples. You know, I'd happily take a class on computer design for papercrafting blogs. I'd like to know how to make other things too, like a badge, and a banner, and . . . well, I'll have to look into that. Anyway, here is my favorite PTI color combo. I really don't know why it's my favorite, except that it makes me happy to use it. Pink is my favorite color, and I do reach for green more than any other color (except maybe blue) when papercrafting. I needed a get well card, and since my June PTI goodies didn't arrive in time for me to play with them, (sad face), I decided on a favorite, Dawn's Scattered Showers. I stamped the raindrops with watermark ink on the Ripe Avocado cardstock and the paper pieced the umbrella and popped it up on a nestie. Some more patterned paper, a popped up sentiment, ribbon and dew drops--oh, and I used my 2-Way Glue Pen and added glitter to the outside edge of the circle. I also shaded the circle, but it seems to be really hard to see in my picture. This will go out today to hopefully cheer up a friend. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! *** Before I go I want to make an exciting (for me, at least!) announcement: On July 1st, I will be posting my first ever challenge! It will be a month-long card challenge and there will be TWO prizes! We're talking PTI gift certs, people! :-D So tune back in next Thursday for the details, I'd love to have you join in!
