April Blog Hop





HEY THERE!!!! Welcome to the Extras on the Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop. Our assignment was to create a project using little pieces of Father Knows Best Patterned Paper from PTI's April release. Man, it was challenging. I played around with pieces forever. I even took some to work and played around sshhhhh!! In the end this is what I came up with. A SUPER SIMPLE but fun card. I really could not decide on my sentiment yet so I have left that out. I dont know if I want this to be a Fathers Day card or what. I simply made a border with the squares of patterned paper. I then used Pond Life stamp set for the scene stamped onto CTMH White Daisy cs. I used CTMH inks in Topiary,Indian Corn Blue,Desert Sand and Bamboo. I then cut out the whole scene to create a more dramatic 3-D look. I re stamped the duck and cut it out and raised it on SU dimensional. Anyway, I hope you like it. It was, as always, fun to play with PTI stamps!!!
