July PTI Bloghop


It's time for the PTI Bloghop, you still have until 11h59pm EST tonight to join in the fun.  Here is the inspiration photo for today:

Don't you just love all those colours together!  The colours is what attracted me first, the brown, turquoise and orange.  Then I thought of the texture of the blinds.  Then I was stumped as to what to do!  Yep, it happens.  But the shape of the cushions kept creeping into my mind, so I decided to go with that as my main focus and what resulted was a very CAS, sort of graphic card I guess.


Paper: PTI cardstock (Kraft, Orange Zest, Aqua Mist)
Ink: Versamark; Memento (Tangelo); Vintage Photo DI
Stamps: PTI (Woodgrain Background; Bitty Background Blocks; Embellishments)
Other: Clear Embossing Powder; Corner Chomper; Dimensional Squares

I'm not really sure about this card, except that it's CAS and, I guess, different!  But different is good sometimes!  I popped up the middle orange "cushion" that was heat embossed after stamping the Woodgrain background on it.

Not much else to explain really, so let me not waste too much time by blabbing on, rather go and hop around the PTI participant blogs for lots of incredible inspiration!
