Papertrey Ink June 2011 Blog Hop: Color Inspiration


I took my inspiration for Papertrey Ink's June 2011 Blog Hop from the colors in the wall and the tulle on the dance wear in the inspiration photo. Using various widths of PTI CS and DPs, I zig-zag stitched them together to form my card's BG.

I next cut 2 white tags from Tag Sale #1 die and after stamping my sentiment and decorative details and adding pearls to one tag, I ran a basting stitch through a piece of tulle, gathered it and folded it to create two layers. Then I adhered the tulle with Scor-Tape along the back edges of the stamped tag and used Scor-Tape to adhere the 2nd tag to the back to finish it. Ribbon and tulle through the tag's top finish it off.

I'm very anxious to see what fabulous creations everyone else posts today!

All CS/DP, stamps, ink (Papertrey Ink)
