August 2012 PTI blog hop

I can't believe it's the 25th of the month! WHOA! Thank goodness Erin reminded me- and she'll be so proud of how challenge happy I am! This month's PTI challenge was all about fall texture- here's my take:
I stamped an argyle background with vintage cream & spring moss ink- smudging more on the left side to give a worn feel. I used the fun trendy tree die & some linen-type fabric for the top- I love how you can see the leaves embossed, but they come out in the die. And perfect for this week's MIM challenge!
The trunk is on dark chocolate cardstock, embossed with the woodgrain plate, which works for this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge!
A little more texture with woven burlap & burlap string- both from May Arts. Tea dye ink around the edges finish it off.
And since it took MUCH repetition (and a little smudging) with that argyle stamp (PCD), I'll add this to the Moxie Fab Repitition challenge! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Hopping!! ;)

Skipping Stones, Artfully

I'm getting back in the swing of things & found a bit of time to create in between chores! I've used the great Artful Delight sketch by Karen & paired it with inspiration from Skipping Stones Designs.
The main colors that popped out at me were the red & white of the awning & the turqoise of the background- and the 'happy birthday' theme, of course! :)
I used a new to me set- pumpkin seeds sentiments, (Thanks Skipping Stones!) inked with Versamagic Aquatic Splash & Versacolor cardinal. The gorgeous ribbon is May Arts faux linen.
Now that I've got the inspiration pic here that blue isn't quite right, but that's the way the ball bounces sometimes. *sigh*. That's the color I remembered it being when I sat down to create! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think! :)
