June 2015 PTI Blog Hop Challenge

JUNE 2015 PTI BLOG HOP CHALLENGE




Well, hey there!  THANK YOU for hopping to my blog!
I really pared down my take on the challenge for June.  I loved the inspirational photo and really wanted to show off a quick card.  I just know the vellum with gray stripes has the potential to be exquisite....I zeroed in on the stripes in the watering can and the orange flower cascade!  I can't wait to see your entries.

I need to make an embarrassing disclosure; I have tried to post comments on so many blogs for so many months, while I'm hopping and for some reason the never post.  I have tried every configuration the little boxes demand of me and they still never show up.  I really enjoy all of your creative work and so enjoy having a look around!  SO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR WONDERFUL ART WORK!
If you can offer me a clue as to how to make it work, please enlighten me!

Have a lovely weekend!  I'm off to visit my mom and sister and her family! 




Cheers!
Gwen

PTI MAY BLOG HOP CHALLENGE!







There is just something so bright and cheerful about a rainbow of colors all in one place.  I found this photo of scattered wooden blocks especially inspiring and thought it was a wonderful jumping point for a card!  You can stamp scattered images on a card front.  Use the colors to create stripes or backgrounds.  Die cut multiples of similar shapes in a rainbow of colors and adhere them in a unique pattern.  Splatter several colors of ink or paint onto your project.  Get creative and have fun with all of the options at your fingertips!


I didn't realize how much I love the rainbow effect on my cards until I saw the challenge, created my card!  And then looked at past card archives!

Here is my entry!
