Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop

I have a card to share for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


Isn't it pretty?
I was inspired by the colours and pattern and chose to use my Floral Bouquet stamp set


Here's my card:


I stamped my Fresh Bouquet outline stamp all over my piece of watercolour paper
in versamark and heat embossed it in clear.
Then, I colour it in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.


I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Think Big Sentiments) 
on a strip of cardstock and heat embossed it in white.
I also added a scalloped frame from the Shakers and Sprinkles kit,
which I diecut from another piece of watercolour paper.

The LEAD of the Frosting Challenge will be invited as a 
Guest Designer in a future challenge!
Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge Blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

I know it's cupcakes in the photo, but I saw pretty flowers!Here's my card:



I decided to use both Reverse Confetti and Essentials by Ellen products
to make my card for this month's Mix It Up Challenge.

I stamped my Mondo Hydrangea blossom three times onto my watercolour panel
and, after heat embossing them, I coloured them in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers
and a water brush.
I created a mask for the hydrangeas and stencilled Altenew Morning Frost ink over them
using my Tim Holtz Woodgrain stencil.

 

I stamped the sentiment (from Reverse Confetti's Simply Sentiments) onto
 a strip of Stone Cardstock which I adhered with dimensional adhesive.
