Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #289

Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday this week is #289 in the series and Lizzie Jones has a demonstration on how to use the smaller images in our stamp sets to create a wreath. For her card, Lizzie used a circle die cut to trace a faint outline on her card front panel to serve as her guideline. When I saw the subject of her video, I immediately thought of the Make It Market Mini Kit: Garden Gild that is available in the Papertrey Store. This set has lots of smaller sized flowers and leaves that you can use to create a wreath. I could have used Paper Clippings: Done in Love or Friendship Jar Flowers would also have been great choices.  Any set that has lots of smaller images would work well.  

Because I have the kit, I also have a few of those pre-printed watercolor pages that Betsy designed so I used one of those sheets.  It has the watercolor in a circular arrangement already so I only had to add my stamping to it. 

I used Papertrey Inks in Aqua Mist, New Leaf, Lavender Moon, Summer Sunrise, and Pale Peony.  The three large flowers have a little crystal center and I used a Jelly Roll Sparkler Pen in clear for the center of the other flowers.  As you probably already noticed, I didn't use any gold on this card and I do love how it came out. I used a few different stitched rectangle dies to cut the front panel and the background layer was cut from Aqua Mist Cardstock and were then adhered to a top folding card base made from Stamper's Select White Cardstock.

  8. Your pretty flower stamping looks great on that background paper!!

    (Btw, PTI customer service said they will be getting more paper back in stock in about 4-5 months, including the Ombre Stripes. Saw you made a comment about it on someone's blog.)

  9. Gorgeous card, Vicki, and love how you stamped your wreath around the already watercolored paper! First glance, I thought you sponged/blended the center.
