Papertrey’s February Blog Hop and Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge

Today is Papertrey’s February Blog Hop!  The challenge is to make a card inspired by the photo shown below.  I was inspired by the watercolor effect and the Moroccan pattern of the photo.  Love how the colors blend into each other.  I was feeling warm tones versus the cool tone of the photo and went with pink, orange, and green versus the blues, pinks and purples of the photo.  I inked up an embossing folder with distress inks, misted it, and used it as a stamp to create the background.  I am also submitting this to Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes.




  • Cardstock:  Simply Chartreuse, Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey Ink), vellum (Papertrey Ink)
  • Ink:  Peeled Paint, Picked Raspberry, Spicy Marmelade distress ink (Tim Holtz), versamark
  • Stamps: Birthday Sentiments Set (Simon Says Stamp)
  • Accessories:  Beautiful Blooms I and III die collections (Papertrey Ink), Flower Mosiac embossing folder (Elizabeth Craft Designs), button, copics, thread, black embossing powder,
