The Papertrey Ink February 2015 Blog Hop Challenge is today!

Here is the inspiration piece:

pti feb 2015 blog hop inspiration

I went really literal with this one. I have a Heidi Swapp stencil that almost perfectly matched the inspiration. And I just played with my Distress Inks again, blending with an ink blending tool. The scrap of silver paper is a nod to PTI’s new metallic product line (although it is Recollections brand).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Papertray Ink White, Recollections Silver Mirror, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberries, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
