Papertrey’s February Blog Hop

Papertrey’s February Blog Hop uses an interesting inspiration photo.  It was intimidating with all that dark gray.  I tried several different backgrounds and ultimately ended up lightening it up by creating more of a watercolor look.  I’m in a hurry to get this up since I am running out of time.  Supplies are listed below.



  • Cardstock: Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey), White (Georgia Pacific); Watercolor (Ranger)
  • Ink: Iced Spruce Distress (Ranger); Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey); Soft Granite Shadow (Hero Arts); Charcoal Shadow (Hero Arts); Versamark
  • Stamps: Rosie Posie (Papertrey); Rosie Posie Step 2 (Papertrey); Square Pattern (Hero Arts); Mother (Papertrey)
  • Accessories:  Gold embossing powder (Ranger);
