PTI: Celebrating the Past, Present & Future -- 2007

Today, I have a card to share that I made for Papertrey Ink's

I don't own any sets from PTI that were released in 2007,
using Text Boxed:

I was inspired by the colours she used, the leaves and the fact that she
combined stamped images with watercolour.
I decided to use my Songbirds stamp set to make my card.

I stamped my leave images in Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, Simply Chartreuse
and Dark Indigo onto my watercolour paper panel.
Then, I pressed Hawaiian Shores ink onto my acrylic block and mixed it with water
and with a paintbrush, coloured over my Hawaiian Shores stamped leaves.
I repeated this process with each colour of ink.

I used one of my Garden Gate stencils on Enchanted Evening cardstock
and blended Dark Indigo ink over top.
Then, I blended more ink onto it, without the stencil.
I stamped my sentiment in Dark Indigo ink, using a sentiment from Songbirds.

Thanks for looking!
