Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop



This summer is just flying by! The kiddos head back to school in less than an month, and it's time again for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

For the month of July, we were challenged to use this photo as a source of inspiration for our project:



I chose to use the colors from the photo as a jumping off point. Also, the PTI Mehndi Medallion Stamp Set reminded me of the quilt in the picture. I used copic markers to color in the Medallion and it was so much fun... definately doing that again! An Aqua Mist scalloped border to match the wall color, and a pop of orange like the curtains, and I was done! :)







Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Mehndi Medallion, Tiny Tags
Paper: Stampers Select White, Aqua Mist
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Aqua Mist, Orange Zest
Other: Tiny Tags die, Copic Markers, Fresh Snow Twill Ribbon, 1/8" Silk Ribbon

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, Audrey! The Mehndi Medallion is SO striking as your focal point (and beautifully colored too!). The white space definitely draws the eye right to your colorful main element (great choice to use white ribbon!)! Super job!
