Hope you are having a fabulous Saturday.
I started off with a 3.5 mile walk at the park with a friend this morning, came home and did a little yard work, went shopping and bought some paper and a stamp set, then found a new challenge site at PaperTrey Ink ~ Make It Monday.
I decided to watch Betsy's video and give it a try.
I do not have many stencils to choose from, but after a of couple tries I decided to use the MFT Diagonal Bars. I remember seeing a color challenge at Color Throwdown, so I chose a few colors close to them. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks ~ Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive, and Seedless Preserves. I used a piece of clear acetate and a water spritzer to create my watercolors.
I used my Cuttlebug to cut this Paper Smooches die twice.
The MFT Sunflower was cut a couple of times in two different shades of yellow card stock and then layered off-centered. The leaves were from another MFT set ~ Scribble Flowers.
After creating my card I went back to the PaperTrey Ink blog and read I had to use their products. I am bummed that I cannot "enter" the challenge, but I am glad that I tried this technique. I am looking forward to seeing what each Monday will bring now. Looks like I am going to have to get some new PTI products, so I can enter the upcoming challenges.
