It's time for another PTI Blog Hop! You can read all about it HERE. This month's challenge was to use text in some way on your project. I chose to use the set Background Basics Text Style and my first PTI love, Text Boxed. Using text lends itself to emboss resist, as does Text Boxed. I stamped the text BG in Palette Burnt Umber on cream CS, then clear embossed the leaf image over it and brayered with Ripe Avocado, trimmed, matted with Ripe Avocado CS. I used my Long Rectangle Nestie to emboss the cream layer on my card front, nestled the focal piece into it, and stamped the sent. which is from Out on a Limb Sents. I stamed the same BG on an old PTI stamp box in Timber Brown Stazon, let it dry, then die cut it with SU's butterfly die. I put some adhesive pearls down the middle for the butterfly's body and attached with foam tape. I love how this turned out and I'm very proud of it! I hope you like it too and that it inspires you to use text on your projects. Can't wait to see what the other hoppers have created--there are always a TON of amazing projects!
