PTI's Create Along With Us: April 2016 & The Challenge #68


Today, I have a card to share that I made for this month's Create Along With Us at Papertrey Ink.
I was inspired by this card by Betsy Veldman:


I was also inspired to use this week's colour challenge at The Challenge #68:


Here's my card:


I started by inking the side of my panel with Harvest Gold ink and my blending tool.
I inked up my Songbirds leaves stamp with Altenew Forest Glades ink and spritzed it
with water before stamping it on my card.
I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's Inspired: Lord), in Tropical Teal ink.


I stamped the flowers (from Graceful Greetings) and the butterfly
from the Masterpiece kit using the same technique as the leaves.
I coloured in the butterfly using a paintbrush, water and ink pressed onto my acrylic block.

Thanks for looking!
