Two PTI Challenges

Hello Stampers! Happy Thursday. I’ve got two projects to share with you. Since I have been playing catch-up lately (this is not typical of me!) I needed to focus on two of the most recent Paper Trey challenges over at my blog group.

The first is for Pam’s challenge which is to create a masculine card. My son is quite the guitarist and never had an official lesson. Some people just get this kind of talent naturally. Lucky Thom! I’m sure he’s missing his guitar while he’s away in Basic Training. Since his birthday is approaching this summer, and the fact that I write to him as often as I can, I had to make this card using an image my friend Lelia lent to me. Sorry, but I don’t know the name of the company. But as soon as I saw the image I knew that it would become a card for Thom.

Guitar for PTI

The next challenge is from Katy of KLM Designs. Katy chose a color challenge from a picture of a wall-hanging that she saw at Coldwater Creek. Here are the colors. I love this combination that she used – they are so soft, peaceful and clean looking.

PTI challenge colors

I used one of KLM’s digital images from a recent release for my project. The ribbon is as close as I could get to the color in the challenge.. but all of the other colors are in the prisma-colored image.. you might just have to look closely.

Love the background paper you used on the guitar card and the bird card is so soft and sweet.

Lesly said...

WOW! I love Tom's card. Did you make the background using the polished stone technique? Sure hope you can figure out who designed this stamp. It's great.

Lelia said...

Gotta love that guitar stamp, eh? :O) I believe it's by Inkadinkado. Great job on the cards, Peggy!


Gina said...

I love the guitar card, it is fantastic ( I think it is an Inkadinkado stamp). It's so cool that you are putting so much thought into the cards you send your son.
