I am super excited to be participating in the Papertrey Ink blog hop! I've been wanting to do this for months but my schedule just hasn't allowed for it. This last week my schedule hasn't been too hectic so I was able to create specifically for this event.
The challenge that was issued to us this month was to peruse the galleries of the PTI design team members and find something that inspired us and then create something on our own based. That was a pretty easy task since they are an extremely talented and very inspiring group of ladies!
The first place I found some inspiration was in Betsy Veldman's gallery. She really know how to do vintage shabby chic proud! Here was her card or I should say gift set that I wowed by. Those tissue flowers were something I couldn't wait to try to recreate.
and here is the card that I made using my version of the tissue flower.
My tissue paper started out as white and I misted it with Mulberry Red Maya Road Mist.
My second piece was inspired by Niki Estes.
I loved the design of this card and used it basically as a sketch for my card, just switched things from right to left.
I'm looking so forward to seeing what everyone else has created for tonight. I have so enjoyed doing this and hope to participate again next month!
