PTI Blog Hop August 2015 {Stamping Text Over Stenciled Background}

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

 
It's time for another PTI Blog Hop.  It's one of my favorite challenges.  I have tons of PTI products and I love the chance to pull them out and get creative.  This month's inspiration photo is beautiful!  The range of colors were so rich and vibrant.  I pulled out 9 colors to create my project. 
 
 
Starting from the bottom, the colors I used are Cranberry Crush, Gala Red, Sweet Gelato, Little Piggy, Pumpkin Spice, Wild Mango, Hayride, Coconut Husk, and Warm Wool!  I sponged each color onto a scallop stencil using sponge daubers.  Once all of my sponging was done I stamped 'wish big', from Stylish Sentiments Birthday, repeatedly in black ink. I also stamped a secondary sentiment on a black banner and embossed it in white.   
 
I love how it turned out! 
I can't wait to see what you have made!
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with my final post  for Paper Smooches' August Release!
 


Cardstock: PTI White, WP9 Black
Stamps: PTI SS Birthday
Ink: WP9 PURE Color Dye Ink, Versamark
