January 2016 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Good morning dear friends!!  I'm starting the year off with a crafty focus!!  I've been enjoying my new stamps and watercolor paper from PTI and it feels so good to be active in my craft room again!! I decided to get in on the fun with Papertrey Ink's first blog hop of the year!!  Here's the challenge:

January inspiration
and here's my take on the challenge:
I used the turquoise color as the base of my card and drew in some of the dark colors to add depth.  I added the pretty little flower accent to bring in a light pop of orange.  For the base I used a sheet of polka dot patterned paper from an old Crate Paper line called open book.  I inked the polka dot paper with Aqua Mist ink and layered it over an Aqua Mist card base.  I then colored the blossom in the Bold Blossom Water Color sheet with Copic Markers and I also colored the little flower with a Copic Marker as well.

I die cut the butterflies several times out of water color paper and vellum and layered them over the water color base.  I added a little lace for fun and then added a stamped banner for the sentiment.

Supplies Used:
Aqua Mist Cardstock and Ink
Copic Markers:
C00 - Cool Gray
C1 - Cool Gray
B00 - Frost Blue
B0000 - Pale Celestine
R01 - Pinkish Vanilla
G40 - Dim Green
G43 - Pistachio
PTI Beautiful Butterflies Dies 
PTI Bigger Blooms Sentiment
Lace from my stash

Thanks for stopping by and celebrating creativity with me!!!
Have a wonderful day!!
