PTI blog hop - country meadow picnic

This month's PTI blog hop has this image as inspiration:



Immediately I wanted to create something with lots of cream, spring moss and touches of red/pink.







First I stamped the sprig images in versamark and heat embossed, then I loaded up distress inks on a large acrylic block, saturated it with a mister, and then layed it on top of the embossed images.  The patterned paper is my favourite sheet from Botanical by Prima.



Supplies; Stamps - Larger than life, Tag-its #5, Mat stack 1 (sentiment), Paper - cream, Botanical PP (Prima), kraft, Other - Larger than life die, doily details die, Berry sorbet satin ribbon, Antique linen and Shabby shutters distress inks, lace, versamark, clear embossing powder.

  1. Such a pretty card! I love your color selection, and the embossed sprigs on the left are fantastic. The Doily with the red flowers is so lovely, and I love the ribbon bow. Very, very pretty. ;-)

  2. Wow. Love how much detail there is in this card. I like the soft muted colors of the background next to the pop of color with the flowers.

  8. Your card is just delightful! I love how much cream you used and how the red truly pops off the card. The doily is one of my favs, too ;)
