Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

Hiya! I'm back with a couple of cards I've made for this months Papertrey Blog Hop challenge. I made them a few days ago then almost forgot to post them! I loved this months inspiration photo and I'm sure I won't be alone in how I've interpreted it ;-)

I smooshed various Distress Inks on my craft mat and pressed watercolour card into it, dried it then repeated that a few times drying between each layer. Then I used the positive & negative pieces to make 2 different looks. I hope you like them, all the supplies are listed below. Thanks for looking!




Dies - Papertrey Ink 'Quatrefoil cover plate' & 'Birthday Trio'

Ink - Distress Ink 'Seedless Preserves', 'Picked Raspberry', 'Chipped Sapphire' & 'Broken China'

Sentiments - Papertrey 'Think Big Favourites #12' & Simon Says Stamp 'Square Sayings'

Embossing powder - Wow! 'Rich Pale Gold' & 'White'

Other - vellum & watercolour cardstock
