PTI Blog Hop--COLOR

AQUA MIST, CREAM, TERRACOTTA TILE



Hi! Welcome my stop on the hop that focuses on color this month.

When I awoke this morning, I decided to make another card for this hop, even though I had my post already to go.

As I set out on card number two for the hop,I had several goals in mind
1. Use a  color I use infrequently--Terracotta Tile
2. Use a stamp I use infrequently--Beautiful Blooms One
3. Use a current sketch challenge--Clean and Simple Sketch 96
4. Make the overall look of the card light while using Terracotta Tile

Searching through my inspiration notebook, I came across these photos of these slipcovered chairs and stools which loosely became my inspiration.




I love this beach cottage!
But I digress, on to my card.

As I gathered materials, I realized I don't own Terracotta Tile ink; I only have the cardstock.  So I used Versacraft Autumn Leaves ink which is a fairly close match to Terracotta Tile cardstock. I started with a card base of Aqua Mist. I stamped a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock and adhered it. The Aqua Mist piece, matted on Terracotta Tile, is stamped with a bloom from Beautiful Blooms and a fern  frond from Turning a New Leaf. The sentiment is from the latest anniversary set, Round and Round. A little twine and button are the simple  finishing touches.

Each month the blog hop provides so much inspiration. A huge thank you to everyone who participates!

Stamps: Beautiful Blooms One, Turning a New Leaf, Background Basics:Botanicals, Round and Round (PTI)
Ink: Vintage Cream, Aqua Mist (PTI); Autumn Leaves (Versacraft)
Paper: Aqua Mist, Rustic Cream, Terracotto Tile (PTI)
