It's been awhile since I played along at PTI, but I love the inspiration photo for the May blog hop (black & white patterns with chartreuse) & the Make-it-Monday (combining patterns from several different packs). I needed to make something EXTRA special for my hubs who surprised me Mother's Day with black diamond earrings (one birthstone each for the twins who turned one in April).
I couldn't resist folkart lovebirds. Or trip-hop funky & washi tape. Yes, I added in a little more color. It was fun - the design & execution flowed quickly this time!
1. The colored green dots on the left panel really tone things down;
2. I masked a horizontal sentiment to go vertical;
3. The heat embossed key has brown baker's twine colored black;
4. I added white dots to the bird pattern to tie things together (hard to see).
My one regret... I'm out of foam tape or I would have 'popped' the panels :(
I can't wait to see your creation for the hop!
