Papertrey Ink June blog hop

Jennifer Kinney pti june 2015 blog hop_01

I'm joining the Papertrey Ink blog hop today.

This photo was the inspiration for the blog hop.

And here are Nichole's words about the challenge:
The simplicity of these gray stripes paired with cream and orange flowers just speaks volumes in regards to card inspiration.  Take these colors and transform them into a classic card that captures the beauty of the photo.  Experiment with stamped flowers or die-cut florals.  Add stripes using delicate Sheer Basics striped vellum overlays or cover plates.  Let the photograph speak to you and see where it takes you!

I loved the color scheme and I love stripes. I pulled out my Super Stripes intending to do a full panel of gray stripes on a cream panel. But, after the first one, it looked like a road to me and I got to thinking what could I fit on that road. A bike! An orange bike! I wish I had placed the bike further onto the card so more of the seat is visible but it is what it is.

After the bike was stamped I felt it was still missing something at the top. I added an embossed line on top of the sentiment and then rubbed some Distress ink on the top to simulate a sky. 

This is a complete one layer card with just stamping and one little dry embossed line. I used Super Stripes, Pedal Pushers, Vintage Cream cardstock, and Canyon Clay ink.

Enjoy the hop!
