PTI June Blog Hop: Color

LEMON TART - MELON BERRY - AQUA MIST



This month's Blog Hop is all about color. One of my all time favorite color combinations is Pure Poppy and Spring Rain. However, I wanted to experiment with color rather than default to a color combination that is comfortable. I was inspired by a necklace that I have. I tried to photograph it and couldn't get the "real" colors to show up. These colors come from that necklace as well as a bit of gold to represent the metal chain.






Cardstock: Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, White

Ink: Versamark Embossing Ink, PTI Melon Berry, Color Box Frost White

Paper: Bitty Box Basics

Stamps: PTI Up Up and Away

Copics: R30, R32, R35

Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Ribbon
