PTI August Blog Hop!
















Who can believe its time for another PTI blog hop? Fall is my favorite season, great theme for this hop and I am sooo looking forward to all the beautiful and clever creations!

I got to use some new toys, my Enchanted Evening ink, my new Autumn Abundance and Damask Designs stamp sets and a pretty shade of purple called Violette.

For the first card I stamped Background Basics Spots and Dots in Enchanted Evening, put a Martha Stewart scalloped lace edge on some Spring Moss dotted paper and added Summer Sunrise dotted satin ribbon. Flowers are watercolored with reinkers. Buttons are melon.

Next card I used SU really rust ink on the damask designs stamp. I never get even coverage on acrylic stamps with those inks, and I was looking for a sort of uneven, faded effect, a bit country. I used rust, mustard and pumpkin with violette in the circle using the Life set, added some dotted papers and a bit of chocolate satin ribbon. Summer sunrise button, bit of twine. Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
