Papertrey Ink June 2016 Blog Hop

This month's blog hop has a beautiful inspiration piece by Yellena James.  I just love the colors in this picture so that was what inspired my cards.

I have one card where I ink blended the background and then added paint splatters on top. I wanted the look of light branches against the background so I cut up the "Into the Woods" cover plate to get that texture.  To finish the card I added butterflies and clear sequins.
This second card is simple and I spent more time with the ink blended background than anything else. This time I wanted layers of color rather than texture.  I love the "Don't Forget to Write"  Make-it-Market kit and so it was an easy choice to build this card.

Gradient Watercolor Die Cuts

It was difficult to choose the colors I wanted to try out for this weeks Make-it-Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink but I finally settled on blending a golden yellow, to orange then red, pink and 2 shades of purple.  It's been a while since I had my watercolors out so it was a good activity for me.  I used Windsor Newton watercolor tube paints to create the background for this card.
