Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop: happy birthday

It’s that time, the monthly blog hop for Papertrey Ink!

Who can resist Aqua & Melon?

My goal with these hops to to ink up a set that I haven’t played with yet, today is

I definitely have a love/hate thing with solid images…it’s hard to capture the image when you use a paler shade of ink.  I have been literally racing around the house trying to find the perfect place to take the picture….darn overcast washington weather (sigh). 

I don’t have anymore of the PTI inks so I substitute with Fresh Ink.  I like using Pool with Aqua Mist, I find it to be a good match.

Although I had both the Aqua Mist and Melon Berry out, I opted to go with the Aqua Mist (which has been dry embossed with the Lifestyle Crafts woodgrain folder).  The blooms have been stamped with Fresh Ink’s Melon. 

The patterned panel is form Carta Bella’s Hello Again collection.  Do you see PTI library card peeking out?  I’ve been loving adding texture to my cards and I slipped a fabric trading card underneath the Sweet Speech image.

I was inspired by THIS card designed by Melissa Phillips.

Can’t wait to hop around!
