Watermelon Card for Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

PTI blog hop logo

Welcome to another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month the focus was luscious, mouth-watering summer fruit colour combos. I was missing many of the colours of inks and papers used in the combos so this truly was a challenge for me!

First I had planned on using this one and omitting the new leaf which I DO NOT like. The challenge did say we didn’t have to use every colour. I planned to make a 3-D, triple-scoop ice cream cone with dies and stamp some gorgeous berry sorbet and GOLD! swirls behind. Oh yeah! But I had NO harvest gold paper. Maybe the colour is too new to be in my multi pack I bought and rely on heavily? I’m still switching over from SU! to PTI as my main source of cardstock. I have no scraps either and don’t remember using any as card bases (the only way I’d not have any scraps) so I guess that must be it. I will have to write down my idea (I guess i just did, didn’t I? hee hee) and make it later!

I usually get to the card right away, sorry! Here it is finally! The colour and inspiration photo is below. I don’t usually take a lot of inspiration from colour challenge photos but I was kind of stumped on a way to use these colours especially since I don’t have any raspberry fizz, limeade ice or new leaf ink.
