PTI November Hop Card




It's another PTI hop and this month Nichole has challenged us to be inspired by cover art.  I went one of my all time favorite children's book "He Came with the Couch".  If you haven't read it I highly recommend checking it out next time you're in a book shop or the library, bound to warm your heart.  Can't wait to see what other literary sources inspired others, always great inspiration on the hops.

Materials: PTI On My Couch and On My Couch Additions, Unity burlap background, button, Lil Inker stitched mat frame die, PTI On My Couch die, Tim Holtz distress inks wild honey, tumbled glass, faded jeans and dusty concord, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen, Twinery twine, Sharpie black pen

Great distressing with your inks to give the feeling of color, but still letting the couch be your focal point. Love your stitched mat frame, I could see getting a lot of use out of that one!

With two girls who couldn't get enough books, I thought I'd read every picture book on earth--but somehow missed this one. What a darling card, and the perfect take on that book cover. I'm always looking for more ways to use that sweet couch image.
