Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
And guess what?
This is my fifth anniversary of playing along with the PTI blog hop, as I participated
for the first time on April 25, 2011 -- and have participated every month since. :)
This month's challenge was to be inspired by the work of Chad Hagen.
It's a really cool photo, but, honestly, it left me a little stumped.
I finally came up with this idea for my card.
I started by diecutting a circle from the edge of a piece of cardstock using my MFT Stax Circle dies.
Then, from the piece left over, I cut the next size circle.
I repeated this step five more times to end up with one circle and six rings.
With my blending tool, I started with the outermost ring and added lemon tart to it.
I then did this to the second outermost ring but added more ink, so it would be slightly darker.
I repeated this step for the next three rings, but with harvest gold.
Then, I did bright buttercup and summer sunrise in the centre.
This gave me a similar effect to the largest circle at the top of the inspiration photo.
I blended aqua mist and Hawaiian shores ink for my sky and green parakeet for the ground.
I stamped the Petite Places: Barnyard onto their coordinating diecuts
and stamped my sentiment Barnyard Sentiments & from KIS: Belated Birthday.
Thanks for looking!
