Happy Saturday! I finally had a chance to get some craft time in today. I spent most of my Christmas break reorganizing, purging, and cleaning my craft room. It is not done yet, but it is getting there.
I got some PTI goodies and Ranger Distress inks for Christmas so I just had to play with one or two of the PTI Make It Monday "A LA CARTE" Challenge this week.
I started with some Ranger Watercolor paper and distress inks for the background technique. I did add some PTI kraft to the mix. I did the "watercolor smooshing" technique from Challenge 204. I finished the background pattern with "splattering" Challenge 233. I used some fun foam to add dimension to adhere to a stampers select card base. I added a gold Metallic die cut sentiment using PTI Birthday Cheer die set. I layered the dies using stampers select for some added thickness and dimension. Next, I used what I think is one of the coolest stamp sets ever! I just love PTI Be Mine, Valentine Stamp Set. First of all, where can you get a gem, a typewriter, a peach, a fan, a camera, and a ruler in the same set? Next, it is not just for Valentine's! It is a win win! I am so glad I got this set. I stamped and die cut two gems and stamped in a soft blue and a soft pink and layered over some loose threading using foam adhesive. I finished my card with a few gold sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
