Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI "Transformation Tuesday" challenge. This challenge is to take a card which you’ve made in the past and transform it in some way. Here's my original card which I made March 22, 2017 and may be seen here:
 Here's my new interpretation / transformation:
This time around, I opted for a softer pastel look featuring watercoloring. I combined pretty flowers from the PTI Vintage Linens set with the thanks sentiment from the PTI Wet Paint Cuts die collection along with a beautiful flourish from the PTI Fanciful Flourishes stamp set:
 For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Color Throwdown color challenge:
Up next is an 8" x 10" oil painting featuring a garden scene that was inspired by Ginger Cook. I'm entering this painting in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge~Day 27:
I'm also joining along with the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where Betsy is challenging us to create a project featuring the Mask and Stack technique. Here's my interpretation of the technique:
I inked up an image from the retiring PTI Butterfly Dreams stamp set, masked and stamped the background then stamped another image from the set to feature as an embellishment:

Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI 11th anniversary day 7 challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring dies only. I created a valentine's day card featuring a variety of die cuts including a sentiment made using dies from the PTI Wet Paint combined with the Wet Paint 11 collection. The heart was die cut using a double layered PTI Primitive Heart die cut with the bottom layer being white card stock and the top layer vellum: 
I stuffed the stitched heart with gold and white sequins then embellished with a homemade flower that was die cut using a PTI Beautiful Blooms die along with some die cut white PTI Fancy Foliage:
For color and theme inspiration, I'm joining along with the current  TIME OUT challenges which is to create a project inspired by the pretty photo shown below:

 Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI 11th anniversary day 5 challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring a stamp set that is on the 2018 retirement list. I created a thank you card featuring pretty butterflies from the PTI Butterfly Dreams stamp set:
I stamped the background with one of the smaller stamps in the set then embellished with a layered die cut / stamped larger butterfly. It doesn't matter to me if this set is being retired, I'll continue to create cards with it :)
 For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:
Up next is a 12" x 12" oil painting featuring a vase of daisies and delphiniums and was inspired by Nancy Medina. I'm entering this painting in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge~Day 9:
