PTI July Blog Hop



This month's PTI Blog Hop is to draw inspiration from this photo and normally I've very literal, but I'm trying to expand my take on photos- so I've just used the butterfly and the blue pillow as my source of inspiration.  Nichole's Stamp-a-faire challenge #10 is to stamp a focal image over a background stamp and I've done that here with the butterfly, I like how it ties together the background on the top layer.  And since Moxie Fab World is having a "Fanatical About Botanical" challenge I'll enter this in there too.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving some blog love....

Materials: Unity butterfly, PTI Happy Trails, Impression Obsession background stamp, PTI In Bloom Impression plate, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 1, May Arts natural fiber, Tim Holtz Distress ink Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass, Versafine black ink, PTI kraft card stock, Fiskars corner rounder
