PTI SEPTEMBER 2015 BLOG HOP CHALLENGE

Hello and GOOD Friday to ya!



When I saw the inspiration photo:

I thought of using the flourishes from AUTUMN ADORNMENT to create a Frame of sorts...WOW Pearl Silver and Pearl White work beautifully on PTI True Black cardstock.  The Sentiment is embossed in WOW Opaque Bright White.
The leafy drapes from  EMBELLISHED ELEGANCE  compliment the the frame in shades of Orange/red/pink and yellow.  I first die cut the the images out of  PTI Linen Vellum and then colored the coordinating stamps with Zig markers, gave it a light spritz of water and stamped the dies.

The video from Betsy Veldman was very helpful in creating the Faux Chalk Art look.

I love how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!
