PTI - Feb. 2016 Blog Hop

Just a quick post to get this card into today's Blog Hop for Papertrey Ink. Love the inspiration photo colours. I've focused on the fern, the pink flower, and the touch of gold.

Inspiration




The flowers are from Vintage Linens, and the gold-embossed sentiment is from Bloomers. I heat-embossed the ferns from Meadow Greens onto some watercoloured paper, then wiped off the extra ink. Kind of a reverse emboss resist, so that the darker areas are underneath the clear embossing.

This card is going to the senior's home, where the staff held a wonderful dinner in honour of my mother's 90th birthday last weekend!

  19. Kathryn, this is definitely a show stopper. I LOVE this card and how sweet the senior home celebrated your mother's birthday. Happy Belated 90th Birthday to her! Your embossing is exquisite in both cases. Now I "need" Vintage Linens after talking myself out of not needing another floral set. : )
