Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge



I loved the inspiration photo for Papertrey Ink's May blog hop and knew I had to take time to play along!  It inspired me to watercolor some florals while dreaming of eating raspberry sherbert - lol!  I'm a big fan of layering large sentiments over an image, so this was perfect to use one of my fave PTI sets - Wet Paint!  I layered 3 'happy' dies to give it more dimension. A touch of Wink of Stella clear shimmer marker was added to the peony center.  I used a Copic marker (Y02) to add some highlights to the peonies and the Copic B0000 was added to 'ground' the jar.


STAMPS: Wet Paint, Peonies on Parade, Quart Jar - all by PTI.
PAPER: Raspberry Fizz (PTI), Ranger watercolor CS, Black and White printed CS by Recollections.
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass distress inks by Tim Holtz.

You'll want to stop HERE to see all the other PTI fans' creations!  Thanks so much for stopping by...
