The PTI swap I often participate in has a new round up--you can read about it HERE. One of the categories is to use one of the 2011 color combos from PTI, seen HERE. The only combo I had all the colors for was this one: Ripe Avocado, Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate, and Vintage Cream--I don't have a lot of PTI's newer colors due to the lack of ink to match. I really like this combo though, so it's okay.
I also knew I wanted to ink up one of my latest acquisitions, Little Bitty Bird, with matching die. I die cut the birds from OT, stamped the birds on them in Dark Chocolate hybrid ink, and colored their wings with a Versamarker. The leaves on the branch are colored with a SU Old Olive Marker, which is pretty close to RA. I wanted a sort of Romeo and Juliet theme, so I have the male bird offering the female a flower. I expect she'd rather have a worm, but the set didn't come with one of those! The DP is PTI's Green Tea Leaves, how I love that paper. It's mounted on RA CS. Scallops are punched with SU punch as is the sent. (Modern Label punch). I inked the edges of the sent with Dark Chocolate ink. The jute and coconut shell button are PTI, although I don't think they sell those buttons anymore, and the card base is Vintage Cream CS. I'm pleased with how this turned out--not too fancy, but I think it would be suitable for lots of occasions. Hope you've enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it! It's been a while since I played with PTI, I had a good time with it!
