PTI June Blog Hop


Hello everybody,

Welcome to PTI's June Blog Hop. This month PTI has an inspirational picture as the theme.
Here is the picture for you.


When I first looked at it, I loved the wall and the colors but I was stumped. How am I going to make a card using that gorgeous picture as inspiration. But then, Nicole had a gorgeous card using copics and a tutorial in this month's release countdown and I wanted to try it. So the rainbow colors on a white cardstock using copics!!!  Nichole's card is stunning but me? Mmmm don't know!
Determined, I set to do the same on a scrap piece of white cardstock. Initially I did not like it and so I left it on the table and left to take kids for their music class. When I came back, the copics had dried and blended very well. Loved it.Not bad :) I can use them Yay!  I used the layout of the picture to make my card set.
So what do you think? Love it? I do. Love the CAS style with lots of color. Here are pictures of the individual cards.


Thanks for stopping by! If you want to play, head to Nichole's Blog and link your post. Its an all day event. Or if you want some inspiration, check out all the blogs linked for the blog hop here.

Happy Hopping!
See ya soon...
Luv!
