Wow! Where have the last couple of months gone? I can't believe it's the end of July and I have had little crafty time in the last couple of months. I had this week off work (much needed, I must say) and I definitely wanted to fit in some card making.
Melissa Philips, over at Papertrey Ink had a weekly challenge with a technique I had not tried before, so what a perfect option for making a card and indulging in some me time! Melissa has a great video (as always), showing how to spritz your stamps to get a unique flair to stamping. If you haven't seen it yet, click here.
Here is my card:
Papertrey Stamp and Dies: Garden Variety
Papertrey Paper: Pale Peony, Stampers Select White
Papertrey Inks: Simply Chartreuse, Pale Peony, Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow, and Classic Kraft
Papertrey Ink Button: Hawaiian Shores
Papertrey Ink Die: Tag Sale #8
Miscellaneous: "Garden Party" by Pebbles-Patterned Paper, Seam Binding Ribbon, Twine, Doily
I used the spritzing technique on the flowers and grass in the watering can. It is a small stamp, so it doesn't show the technique well in the photo, but it was a fun and easy way to change up a stamps look!
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by. Now go get crafty yourself and stop by PTI blog to see what others are creating with this technique.
See you soon-
