Papertrey Ink has a variety of challenges up at the moment and I found one of them irresistible, where they ask to combine a couple of different floral stamp sets and create a bouquet on a card. You can find the post here. You know I like my florals 🙂 Here’s what I came up with:
It’s a similar card to the one I shared previously, with a Soft Stone base and pops of colour against the white panel, on the loosely put together floral arrangement. It’s what I feel most comfortable with. What I don’t feel comfortable with is how whenever I create a PTI – oriented card, I find my stash outdated and inadequate. Funny how I seem to have quite a few stamp sets, cardstock and inks, but the stamps, if any, I acquire always after long months of eyeing them, when the rest of the stamping community regards them as old and boring and happens to sell their personal stash for half the price. LOL
I always think of my American friends, I hope you know how lucky you are because what we get horrendous international shipping prices slammed on, you get with an achievable option of free shipping. Although it’s a good exercise in rationalism, being able to sieve through tons of product out there and picking only the rare gems that I truly know I will love and get a good mileage from 🙂
All in all, I hope you like the card. All supplies listed below, except from the Botanical Silhouettes stamp set which I believe was an exclusive Anniversary set and no longer available through their store. Peace out!
