PTI Make it Monday #169

The Challenge:


On Nichole's blog said #168 but I believe it is #169 as I played along almost every week unless I am on the road.

I started with PTI Mehndi Medallion impression plate that I hardly use because I still can't work them correctly and get the effect I wanted, this time seems a little bit better. Next is to chalked them with purple/blue shades.


and then I stamped using various stamps and inks from PTI


ok, look closely at the following photo, see if it is different from my other photo I posted before, I actually followed the tips from my blog friend Diane Jaquay, few days ago she blogged about how to get the perfect shot for your card, I learn a lot from her, thanks Diane! I didn't have the form base at home and I can't wait to try it out, so I used a white hard cover envelope I have at home and I love the effect, do you? Try it out, and don't forget to hop over to Diane's blog, she is amazing, her cards are always awesome and her photography skill is wonderful!


after I stamped on the blue vellum, I didn't quite like the look, so I used PTI feather dies and stamps and added another layer, this time, I am happier!


well, it turned out better than I expected

I think it's lovely!! Great design Kirsty!

At one of our supermarkets (Aldi) they have cardboard boxes that hold boxes of eggs ... they are all white inside and perfect for using as a light box ... not too big and you can fold them ... maybe they have some in your supermarkets?
