Celebrate ~ PTI Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  I finally made a few spare moments to make a card this week!  I always love to participate in the Papertrey Ink blog hop.  We were asked to use this photo for our inspiration…

I took the colours from this photo and translated them into Tim Holtz distressed ink colours.  I smooshed them on my craft mat, spritzed them with water, then laid a piece of white PTI cardstock on top.  Here’s my work space…

I went over to Laura Bassen’s blog to get some more inspiration on how to NOT cover up all this beautiful water colour.  I went for a black banner with simple white sentiment.  Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!
