Red, White & Blue


Fun challenge for PTI MIM--Ink Blending Through Die Cut Masks.  I used the PTI vellum to make a mask with PTI Small Sketched Stars. They're still attached since I like the arrangement & don't want to loose any of them.  
My card is for PTI MIMCropStop & One Layer Simplicity.  I used PTI Blueberry Sky for the stars & the sentiment from the new Make It Market kit is stamped in Distress Ink festive berries.  The stars are brushed with Wink of Stella & I splattered on Heidi Swapp white Color Shine & Delicata Shimmery Silver.  Needed something, so I added a scored frame.

OLS
The vellum mask worked great, so I decided to make another card.  
I began by inking a die cut rectangle with Blueberry Sky & then stenciled with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress & brushed the stars with Wink of Stella.  The panel was mounted to silver glitter paper.  For the card front I stamped a panel of stripes using an image from PTI Watercolor Wonder & Adirondack Cranberry dye ink. The sentiment is an old favorite from the Oregon company Peddler's Pack & I finished off with PPP Sparkling Clear sequins.  I'm entering Fusion, HLS Anything Goes, Little Tangles, Stamplorations Theme & Sketch.

Clarification:  I die cut the stars from a piece of PTI vellum & used it as a stencil for both cards.

Great job with the PTI challenge Greta!! Your second card is a perfect patriotic card. It's not too in your face red white and blue, just the right shades of each!!

I agree with Rosemary ~ Your MIM cards are always awesome, and these 2 cards are fabulous! I love the arrangement of the stars...it's perfect for your design! Love the diagonal stripes on the 2nd card, too! Great job on the challenge!

Great cards and designs Greta, I always struggle with red white and blue combos, maybe I should try a paler blue as that works so well here.

Both of these cards are perfect in their simplicity, but they are so well thought out and that does take time. Love the idea of using dies as stencils!

Starry spectacular x two! These are fabulous! Actually, I created a card with this technique, too...and used stars as well. Great minds, right?! I've saved it for a down-the-road post, as I don't have enough PTI products to play in their challenges...
