PTI Blog Hop!! (my first one!)



This is my first Papertrey Ink blog hop! So fun! The challenge was to use tissue paper and Papertrey Ink products. I used Background Basics: Text Style for the background and Fresh Alphabet for the "...... YOU".


For the tissue paper, I decided to make it look like that shabby, gauzy ribbon people have been using lately. I don't have any, so I thought this was a great time to try and make it! I died the white tissue paper with worn lipstick distress ink and my foam applicator. Then I scrunched it all up and distressed it some more by added some more ink. I put down some sticky strip tape and scrunched the tissue paper along it. It held perfectly!
I had a blast creating the background with Text Style and distress inks. I covered chipboard with patterned paper and strung it along with twine. I will add the supplies later, so that I am not late! :)
Card stock: Neenah Paper Environment (desert storm)
Patterned paper:
Sassafras (my type), Crate Paper (ripple) - Studio Calico's Joyland kit
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (background basics: text style, fresh alphabet)
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink (antique linen, worn lipstick), Versamagic (turquoise)
Chipboard: Maya Road (mini chipboard banner) - Studio Calico's Joyland kit, American Crafts LetterBox chipboard frame - Studio Calico Petit Fours Kit
Twine: Martha Stewart
Doily: Sweet Vintage esty store - Studio Calico Petit Fours Kit
Etc: Prime (dynasty flower center citrine) - Studio Calico's Tilt a Whirl kit, tissue paper
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
