PTI Challenge

Papertrey Ink is celebrating its 6th Anniversary with lots of challenges and contests. I decided to join in today. The challenge was to create some kind of wrap, tag or packaging based upon inspiration found on Pinterest (or another source). Well I took a look around Pinterest (I gave myself a time limit or I never would have made a thing). I don't know about you but sometimes when I look around Pinterest I feel as if my head will explode - tooooo many ideas LOL! However, I came upon this tag - I loved the colors. Me and color have a love/hate relationship.  I love it but I'm not always successful using it. But I decided this was supposed to be a challenge so I'd give it a go. I knew already I wanted to make wrapping paper and thought I'd like to also create a coordinating tag. I had a roll of white kraft paper. I cut off a large piece and got to work after a number of rounds of stamping on scrap paper to get just the right mix of colors, flowers etc. I used a number of Papertrey Ink stamp sets: Tagged Sentimentss, Flower Fusion #2 & 7, and Heart-2-Heart #7 & 12. I also used the Tag Sale #6 die. It's been a long time since I've made wrapping paper but I really had a lot of fun and I do believe I'll be making a whole bunch more!
