PTI Blog Hop

Hello!!  It is blog hop day!

So, here is my submission for the the Papertrey Ink April blog hop!  Yay!  So what was the challenge you ask?  Why, it was to use tissue paper in some form on your project.

I chose to make a card incorporating the faux silk technique.  Each block has a stamped image (or a couple) on piece of tissue paper.  I used copics on the small tress to give them a bit of color after stamping.  Then, I crumpled and smoothed out the paper. Each piece was glued down to white cardstock.  Turned out pretty cute I think.  On the green cardstock I used another stamp and versamark ink to create a background.  I decided to 'pop dot' the tree to give it that little bit extra!   The stamps I used are from the PTI Through the Trees set.

The sketch is based off of the challenge at Tayloredexpression.  I think it's a fun one, and will be trying it again soon!

Thanks for hopping by!  I can't wait to see what everyone else has created!
