April PTI Bloghop!!




Wow!! Can you believe it is already that time of month? I love these blog hops! Seeing what each of you create is so much fun. You are all so talented and so much inspiration to be had.


Since this month challenge was to use tissue paper. I immediatel thought of flowers and used my Beautiful Blooms II #2 die to cut several ( I believe I did four) of each size with the tissue that our stamps come so neatly wrapped in each month. I then used Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz ink and sponge to color them the color I wanted for my flower. I scrunched the tissue up before I sponged them. It didn't quite turn out like I was thinking but I like it anyway.
I will keep this short so you can get onto other blogs and leave you with what supplies I used.
Thank you for stopping by and for leaving any comments you might have.
Have fun tonight!
Liz
