February PTI blog hop


Just dropping in to join the fun on this month's blog hop. The challenge was to create something with this stunning piece as inspiration.

I was drawn to the blues and purples and the white lines.

I started by smooshing some purple and blue Distress ink on my card front then heat embossing in white the banner stamps from Birthday Style.

I heat embossed my sentiment in black onto vellum and taped it on to my card front with washi tape. The balloon dies were stamped with a text background and a stripe background and then tied with some purple sparkly twine. For some reason the twine photographed as tan but really it's much lighter IRL.

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your hop!
