first ever Papertrey Ink blog hop!

This is my first ever Papertrey blog hop! I am so excited! The challenge was to use tissue paper. There are so many ways you could use it, I chose a very simple way to use it.

I used it over top of the Polka Dot Parade paper to lighten or take some emphasis away from, the brightness of the dots so I could put my letters there. I think it allows the letters and the buttons to stand out and not have the dots pull your eye away.

I used a little bit of diamond glaze on the letters to make them  puff up a little bit. And then also used the swiss dots embossing folder to add a little more to my card base. I have learned that if I am not doing a one layer card I have trouble leaving the base flat!

I wish I could have used some new supplies but i was way too slow ordering and everything I wanted was sold out! Better luck next time I guess!
Thanks so much for looking, and enjoy the Blog Hop!

Supplies-PTI unless specified
paper: summer sunrise cardstock, polka dot parade pp.
stamps: friends til the end, CTMH giggle alpha
ink: versamagic - pesto, mango & ocean depth
other: vintage spring mix buttons, swiss dots embossing folder, diamond glaze.
