Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop- White, Melon Berry & Ripe Avocado

Today I am participating in my first Blog Hop with PTI. The theme was to focus on COLOR. I decided to stay with a pretty clean and simple scheme. I used their Moroccan Motifs impression plate to emboss the white strip, then cut out just one of the "lines" of Motifs. The card is basic A2 size but I used a smaller white panel (4x5 1/4) to stamp and color the Lily of the Valley. After coloring it in, I used a craft knife to cut just around a few of the flowers and the leaves so it would over the embossed strip. I sponged Melon Berry ink onto the strip and around the smaller panel to add some color. The inside of the card says "Thinking of You Always".




Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI- Stamper's Select White
Stamps: PTI- Lily of the Valley
Ink: PTI- Melon Berry, Ripe Avocado
Other: PTI- Moroccan Motifs Impression Plate, Copics
