PTI challenge - a bit late!

A few weeks ago, PTI Make it Monday challenge was dry brushing. I made this beautiful card below, then for the life of me, could not find the download cable for my camera to actually be able to post the photo!

But, here it is, better late than never!

I must confess, I did not have a stipple brush, so I had to get creative - so dug out the old toothbrush from under the kitchen sink (they are great for cleaning tile grout!) and also great for dry brushing!

I inked up my toothbrush by pressing it into my not quite navy inkpad, and dragging it along the apricot appeal card from top to bottom. Really love the effect!

I stamped the image into a die cut mat stack 3 shape, and then coloured with my SU markers (apricot appeal and wild wasabi). I stamped a strip of wild wasabi with the flower image in vintage cream (PTI) ink and the greeting in night of navy ink. Folded it to create a banner and trimmed the ends.

Drew a border around the inside of the matstack shape to give it a bit more deffinition so it did not appear to float on the page too much.

Decided it needed some sparkle, so added some random SU rhinestones near the bottom right of the card.


Very simple, and very striking. Loving the colour combo!
