Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


While the DT at Papertrey Ink were showcasing Christmas products this month,
I really couldn't get in the mood to make a holiday card just yet...


I started by stamping my sentiment from Phrases and Praises in
versafine onyx black ink on stamper's select white cardstock.
I made a border for my card with true black cardstock.
I wet some watercolour paper and coloured over it with two Zig Markers
and then went over the colouring with water.
Once it was dry, I splattered ink mixed with water over top.
Once that was dry, I diecut some Fancy Foliage Detail dies from it.


Some classic kraft button twine finishes it off.

Thanks for looking!

Somehow I didn't end up getting the Phrases and Praises set. Big mistake - your card is absolutely lovely and so meaningful! I love the simple foliage with the twine bow surrounded that sentiment.
