I managed to get a card finished for this month's PTI Blog Hop! This month, Nichole provided us with a gorgeous inspiration photo (see below) and basically said "run with it", lol. I took two elements from the photo to inspire my card: (1) I LOVED those colors! The shades of Hawaiian Shores and Orange Zest jumped out at me, as that is one of my favorite PTI color combos, anyway! (2) That window... what a perfect opportunity, since I've been wanting to make a "window" card with the Alpha Blocks die, ever since I got it!
So, I used some of the Damask Designs patterned paper to pull in the aqua colors, with an Orange Zest card base (die-cut with Edger #1) and accents. I cut the window from Kraft and then used the woodgrain Impression Plate on it, inking with Versamark first to better bring out the texture.
I made the little panel to go behind the window, stamping Gracious Vases images and coloring with Copics. The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #8 and stamped onto a double-ended banner die cut.
Here is the photo:
Thanks for looking!
