Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop

Thursday, August 25, 2011



There are so many different bits of inspiration you could take from this beautiful photo.  I decided to stamp my background on kraft with versamark ink to represent the inside of the vintage suitcase.  Then I used the towel pattern as inspiration for the floral pattern I stapmed on the bottom portion of my card using Garden Of Life.



Thanks for coming by.
I can't wait to see your project for the hop!


Cardstock: PTI Rustic White, Kraft
Stamps: PTI Iconic Images, Garden Of Life
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy, Memento Bamboo, StazOn Brown, PTI Tea Dye Duo, Versamark
Other: Satin Ribbon, Corner Rounder Punch
