October PTI blog hop & EBTKS!


This month's hop was to celebrate a non-Christmas holiday....

Using the EBTKS sketch, I came up with this (I missed the cutoff for EBTKS!):

In celebration on the winter solstice :)
The night pics make it very hard to see several details... such as: there's a label frame embossed into the spring rain base framing the wreath. I used the border stamp from embellishments in chai tea to make the lines in the sketch & went over them with the dotted border from this year's anniversary set in fresh snow. Versafine brown, PTI pure poppy & gems from my stash.


Inked the edges with chamomile tea too! :) Thanks for stopping by & happy hopping!
