Birthday Card for a Friend

Can you believe I have completed  2 posts in less than one week!  I have been again inspired by Papertrey Ink, ok maybe the threat of winning a prize has a motivating factor.  Also I needed a card for a friend, and this friend is a very good cardmaker herself so I wanted to make something I thought she might like.  Anyway, the PTI challenge today is to use a watercolor technique or look, so I made some "spray paint" with a reinker and "painted " a background on watercolor paper before stamping it.  This is what I came up with:


Paper:  PTI C/S Rustic White, Strathmore Watercolor Paper
Stamps:  PTI Daydreamer, Framed Out #1, Tag Its #5
Ink:  Ranger Distress Broken China
Other:  Memory Box Dies

Rosie Posie Meets Harvest Berries

I am so enjoying all of the inspiration and festivities at Papertrey Ink these past several days. And oh the prizes! Managed to whip up a card in the midst of shovelling out of about 35 cm (14 inches) of snow!  It has been such a winter wonderland this year so far.   I chose to use Sketch # 2, which you can see here. This is what I came up with:

Thanks for looking,

Paper:  PTI C/S White
Stamps:  PTI Harvest Berries, Asian Fusion, Rosie Posie
Ink:  SU Black, Burgandy; Versamark
