PTI June Blog Hop







The challenge for the June Papertrey Ink Blog Hop is to use the lovely photo above to inspire a card creation. My card took a rather literal interpretation.

2011 06 22_3842_edited-1

I used Text Style to create strands of rainbow colors on the background. I then punched a few squares and stamped the word "you" on them. I purposefully did not stamp them in the middle of the square to give it more of a fun and carefree feeling. It's quite hard to see but I filled in the Outline Alphabet with black glitter. It can be seen in person but my camera just wasn't able to capture it. That's it - easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Have fun on the rest of your hop!

Supplies:
Stamps: Wonderful Words Additions, Outline Alphabet, Text Style (all from PTI)
Other: black glitter (Martha Stewart), square punch
