PTI June Bloghop


It's the 25th again and it is time for Papertrey Ink's bloghop. We got a picture (above) to inspire our creativity and I just LOVE working from pictures! It often forces you to leave your comfort zone - new patterns, new shapes and - new color combos for example (-:
I don't think I've ever made a card with bright yellow and Turquoise/green before, but I was actually quite pleased with the result:




I used PTI Itty Bitty Dots paper and stamps from Tagit's #2 and Signature sentiments. Ink; Tea dye cham.
                                             Have a great day and a great hop, hugs, Karin
