PTI October Blog Hop
Once again, it's time for the PTI Blog Hop. Even though I've been quite busy (& am currently in Kinshasa, DR Congo), I was determined to still participate. This month's challenge was to create a Christmas card using a non-traditional colour combination. Nichole was kind enough to post six colour combinations on her blog (accompanied by a photo for inspiration). They were such great photos and colour combinations, that I was hoping to create a card for each one, but, unfortunately, I ran out of time. However, I did manage to make two of them.
Here's the first colour combination:
And the card I made, using the stripes in the scarf as inspiration:
I used PTI cardstock (soft stone, aqua mist, ocean tides), stamps (nativitiy silhouette additions) and buttons. The twine is Lawn Fawn.
And here's the second colour combination that I used:
And, my card:
I used PTI cardstock (vintage cream, berry sorbet, harvest gold, melon berry, spring moss), stamps (wreath for all seaons), buttons, twine and dies (delightful doilies, double-ended banner).
Thanks for looking!
