Hi y'all! Can you believe I'm back again? I have been feeling sooo inspired lately and have been itching not only to create, but to share with all of you too! I wanted to participate in this month's PTI Blog Hop, and the challenge is to create something using pink. When I decided to participate I had already made my Valentine cards for the year (to come in another post), so I wanted to make something else.
Ever since pouring the PTI Design Team projects for the January release, I kept finding myself thinking about this card by Ashley Cannon Newell:
I just LOVE the patterned paper in the background! Soooo, I thought I would try to re-create it using some pink! Here's what I came up with:
How'd I do? (Man you can really tell I need a new camera and some lighting!) What I love about this technique is that it looks like a lot more work than it really was! I simply cut uniform strips of Hibiscus Burst paper, covered a card base with ATG adhesive and arranged the strips in the herringbone pattern from left to right. Once it was finished, I decided it needed a little something more to help define the individual strips, so I rubbed the whole front with some Vintage Cream ink then some Fresh Snow ink.
To finish things off, I added some layered accents (see die cuts listed below).
Thanks so much for visiting! I can't wait to see everyone's creations this month!
