papertrey ink day 1

Papertrey Ink are celebrating their 5th anniversary this month! The challenge today was to pick one of the team members favourite projects to use as your own inspiration. It will come as no surprise to you that I chose the fabulous Maile Belles. This lady can do no wrong; from her clean and simple projects to her wonderful stamp designs. I picked out three of Maile's stamp sets
  • modern basics
  • background basics circles
  • gracious vases
and here's what I came up with.

Pin It

I had to resort to lights to photograph this as it's dark here now. In fact I really should be in bed considering I've been a bit under the weather. Anyway, in real life the pink is a really vibrant magenta which doesn't come across that well in this photo. If I get the chance tomorrow then I will take a picture using natural light.

Here's is the inspiration picture from Maile, it's from this post if you want a closer look.

Hopefully you can see that I took the background stamped panel, pop of rich colour just above a sentiment which overlaps the background.

I loved your card so much that I cased it. I didn't have the same supplies but I loved the look of your card so I used what I had. I would vote you to be on the PTI team in a heartbeat. Hope you have a great day.
