Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

This month's Papertrey blog hop challenge uses the very unique artwork of Izziyana Shuhaimi as our inspiration.

I love the stitching in this art but I lack any any real stitching stamps or dies.  Therefore, I chose to go with a predominately grey background and add a pop of color.  My butterfly is heat embossed and then ink blended.

Ink Blending Over Heat Embossing

This week's Make-it-Monday at Papertrey Ink had us blending ink over a heat embossed image. As I have gotten better at ink blending I am finding I really enjoy it. What was so nice about Danielle's sample card it that it used a die I own in a new way.  I am always looking for new ways to use my templates and dies, so I was inspired by Danielle's use of the You've been Framed:Oval Die.   As a result I had to give her card design a try.

I experimented a bit with my Fancy That stamp set to create the card below.  With this card I got to do a lot more ink blending.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

I love texture on cards so as I created the card below I immediately thought it would be another good entry for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  I really admire the design work of Kay Miller and the card below was inspired by her lovely work.

CTS # 162 and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

I thought I would join in this week's  Case this Sketch Challenge with Sketch #162.  Here is the sketch.

My Card has some texture to background (dots embossing) and the top layer has a dry embossed rose design I applied by using a stencil from Tim Holtz in my Big Shot.  I tried to emphasize the rose embossing by lightly brushing a bit of pink ink over the top. My rose flowers, leaves and sentiment are from Paypertrey Ink.
With my texture elements I thought this would also be a good card to share with the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

Ombre Stenciled Backgrounds

I have so much fun with ink blending that this week's Make-It-Monday at Papertrey Ink was right up my alley.  I have slowly been collecting stencils but have not yet purchased the new PTI stencil set, however they are on my wishlist.  Therefore, I used a Hero Arts stencil for this card.  I have used PTI Raspberry Fizz, PTI Berry Sorbet and Stampabilities Mustard ink for my blended background.
