First up PTI wanted to see our favorite PTI creation. This is the one I picked from a recent Blog Hop. I had a great time combining embroidery and coloring to create it, and it also uses my all time favorite PTI sentiment set (which you'll be seeing more of).
The first challenge was a color recipe. Here is the one I picked.
Now I have to admit that I kind of totally cheated on this one. I happened upon this patterned paper that basically did all my work for me.
I die cut the Leafy Branch Die from black cardstock as well as from the patterned paper, and then adhered it slightly off set. The sentiment is from the Happy Trails set.
This next card is my favorite of all the cards I created this weekend. It was a pointillism challenge.
I thought this image from the Botanical Blocks stamp set was perfect for the challenge, because it was small. Ha! Actually I thought it worked well in terms of the lines and that texture in it to begin with. Not gonna lie, this takes a while. But I think it's really worth it.
The image was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then I went in with the darkest colors to try and define the lines. Once that was done I went darkest to lightest and kind of 'shaded' the colors.
OK, I have a bunch of other cards to share from Stamp-A-Faire, but I thought I would stop here for tonight. I'll share the rest later in the week.
