Hello! Welcome to the hop. This month the challenge is to create a card using your favorite PTI color combo. I chose to use aqua mist, pure poppy, and vintage cream.
I love the vintage looking paper from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop line. It just so happens that a few of their papers from that line include the colors I chose for the hop tonight. I wanted to create a focal panel that would look a little vintage as well. So, I decided to make my focal panel look like an old sign/advertisement/postcard type design. I stamped the bike image from Everyday Button Bits and colored it in. I then used the 2nd largest solid circle from Beautiful Blooms 2 to stamp the black wheels. I finished off the bike with buttons in an aqua mist color. They were a little too new looking so I rubbed my chamomile cube over them to distress them a little. I also used the tea dye duo to ink the edges of my focal panel to make it look more vintage. I then stamped my senitment (from Enjoy the Ride) in Pure Poppy and used the 5cents stamp from Friendship Jar and stamped it in Aqua Mist in the upper right hand corner. I thought the 5cents stamp would give my focal panel the look of an old sign that I was going for. I also used Fancy Flourishes to add a fun little swirl underneath my focal panel and some satin cream ribbon to make a little ribbon tab. I love how this card turned out and actually made quite a few of them in different color schemes! I hope you enjoy the hop!
