Papertrey Ink is continuing with their third anniversary celebration this week and WOW...the new products are awesome!! There have been lots of challenges posted and I am very far behind so..... I took some time today to do a few cards and fulfill a few challenge requirements. Better late than never right?!?
First, I combined 2 challenges in one card....the Emboss Resist challenge from here and the favorite color palette challenge from here. I used Erin's colors and I just love them together!
Here is what I came up with...(all supplies from PTI)
The image (PTI, Through the Trees) was embossed with clear embossing powder on Snow White cardstock (PTI). I then used a Distress ink pad (Tim Holtz) and a paper towel to apply the ink over the embossed image. Too fun!!
The next card was in response to the Paint by number challenge here. I used this color palette because my user name on the PTI forum starts with "B".
And here is the sketch we were given...
I played around with this one for a LONG time.....I just kept rearranging where I wanted each color. I wasn't at all sure I was ever going to be able to make them all work together. BUT, I think it turned out to be my favorite of the day! Again, all supplies from Papertrey except the Prima flower...
And last but not least, I did Becky Oehler's Challenge number 3 for this week (I still have to do last week's yet!). I think this one still needs a little "somethin, somethin" but am not sure what.......I am open to suggestions! All supplies by PTI.....
And on a side note....everyone should try the challenges on Becky's blog. She posts them every Tuesday along with a video and instructions. They are so easy to do! I have always considered myself "card challenged" so image how thrilled I was when Becky chose my card from Week 1 as one of her top three! Thanks again Becky!!
Well, hopefully you made it to the end of this long post. I have two more challenge cards to do before I am caught up. Perhaps I can do them tonight while we watch American Idol.
Thanks for stopping by...
