PTI Building Blocks challenge

Once in a while a post “needs” to be written in English and this is one of them. Yesterday I participated in a challenge at Papertrey Ink: By rolling a die it was decided which colours, elements, sketches etc. to use on a card.

My results gave me a cards with these elements:

Vintage cream, spring moss, sweet blush and pure poppy
Heat embossing
Rhinestones & seam binding
Just because card

The resulting card was a good deal out of my comfort zone but I had a great time creating it. I went for a very soft and romantic look and I used vellum to soften up the background.

Adding the vellum gave me a chance to make a pouch for sequins which is something I’d love doing again. Maybe for a Christmas card?

I heat embossed the image and then I coloured in the flowers using PTI inks diluted in water. It was a lot of fun and I love the end result. It won’t be the last time I colour images this way.

This was a fun challenge and one that made me look at my materials in a different way. Thank you, PTI for challenging me.

    Oh Cecilie, your card turned out so pretty! Kind of dreamy looking with all the lovely softness. And by the way – you have gorgeous handwriting! And I’m in love with your die! Thanks for sharing your card with us.

    Cecilie, your card is gorgeous! What a terrific idea to add the vellum to tone down the Pure Poppy layer. This doesn’t look like a challenge – it looks like every element of your card was purposefully chosen, and to me, that’s a sign of a challenge well done – great job!
