Papertrey Anniversary Day 2 blog hop

Well, day 2 festivities are continuing over at Papertrey and there were some freebie digital images to download and use.  I decided to keep it simple and use Maile Belles' image with her Background Basics circles set. This set has a much wider base so it is super simple to line up and see.  Love that! I used speckled egg and weather vane inks from Jenni Bowlin.  Just can't get enough of her inks!  These are two of the new colours - a turquoise and grey.  Yum!
I then coloured the digital image with Derkwent Inktense coloured pencils - they have amazing vivid colours and are so fun to use!  I used an aqua brush pen that I picked up from M's with a coupon ... those coupons really are invaluable!  Some foam dots on the circle and my simple card is done.

Paper: Staples 110lb white
Stamps: PTI Background Basics, digital image from PTI
