October Papertrey Blog Hop - Happy Holidays

This month's blog hop at Papertrey Ink offered up inspiration pictures with non traditional colour combinations. 
What a pretty combination this one is!  I don't tend to gravitate towards the pinks but had fun combining them with turquoise shades.  I took thin strips of Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist and glued them down with thin strips of Tombo Mono Multi - this glue rocks because one of the nibs is super tiny, allowing for narrow strips or small dollops of adhesive.
 I stamped the Holiday Lights' line of lights with Fresh! Navy ink and then stamped the stars in Fuschia and the bulbs in Jenni Bowlin Speckled Egg.  I chose a  Think Big sentiment for a repeat of the Navy ink.

After all the stamping, I ran it through with the canvas impression plate a couple of times - this adds great texture without being too overpowering.  Some Stickles and Liquid Pearls and that's it!
Supplies:
Paper: Staples 110lb white; PTI Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist
Stamps: PTI Think Big (sentiment), Holiday Lights
Ink: Jenni Bowlin Speckled Egg; Fresh! Navy, Fuschia
Misc: PTI Canvas impression plate,  Tombo Mono Multi glue, Stickles, Liquid Pearls

Stunning card. Loved the subtle impression and such a great use of that think big sentiment. I always have hard time using them and you have rocked it. Loved it.
