I am back for Papertrey Ink’s March 2015 Blog Hop Challenge!
Here is this month’s inspiration:
And boy, did it challenge me. I have been struggling with challenges this month. The inspirations have not inspired me (too much winter or too many hours on the couch with Netflix? Who knows!), or my attempts look too contrived.
Here are my first attempts at the challenge:
I really, REALLY wanted to use my new Bold Blooms (Essentials by Ellen/Julie Ebersole) stamps, but I try to use Papertrey Ink products for the Papertrey Ink blog hop (seems only fair!). After the first 3 misses, I went back to my storage drawers and found the PTI Enjoy the Ride stamp set.
What is not to love about a yellow VW Bug on the beach with a plane banner (the plane flew off the card – ha!)? I used my blending tool to create the sky and the sand. Even pulled out the OLD Papertrey Ink Chai and Chamomile ink cubes I bought years ago and never used.
Thanks for stopping by!
