PTI June Blog Hop "Color"

Dark Chocolate, Kraft, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest
The challenge for June's PTI blog hop is color. I was flipping through a magazine and fell in love with this cute, summery dress, necklace, purse and sandals. The color combinations jumped out to me and said " PTI". I began with a dark chocolate base just like in the dress. I loved the layers of ruffles on the bottom of the dress so I cut two layers from Dotti Biscotti paper with PTI's large scallop die. I used a strip of ric rac in raspberry fizz and orange zest as an accent. I love using that ric rac die. The woven purse in the picture was more than an accessory to me and I tried to capture the feel of it by using a Spellbinder Nestability Label #3 stamped with the sentiment, run through the linen impression plate and folded over the top of the card. It doesn't show up too well in the picture, but in person it looks a little woven like the purse. I used some tea dye around the edges. Wow, that kraft paper sucks up the tea dye. I had to use at least 3 layers to get it to show. The finishing touch was an orange brad and some little beads left over from a pair of earrings to mimic the necklace. All in all, I think this card is a good take on the cute dress in the magazine and also highlights some of PTI's fabulous colors.

Fun! I like how you got your inspiration from a magazine pic. I'm always giving magazines an extra look now to see if I can glean color inspiration or even a layout from them.

Cathy, this is just SO adorable! I love how you really incorporated so many elements of your inspiration piece. I especially like the scalloped "ruffles"! Too cute!
