PTI 5th Anniversary: Day 2 (Card 3)

Phew! I got all the PTI 5th anniversary day two images that I really wanted to play with done. There is, of course, a few others I'd love to do something with, but we'll see... I think 3 cards in one day shows how much I've neglected my house and kids is plenty!

Here' s what I did with Maile's awesome image:


I used a few of the smaller stones from my son's little rock "collection" on the front step to keep my card shut. Much easier to see the image that I placed on the inside of the card.

I started with a Royal Velvet card base and used a Spellbinder circle to cut out a window. I spritzed the front with Pearl Glimmer Mist, rounded the corners and stamped a few splotches with the Grunge Me set and Platinum Planet ink.

The image was colored with Royal Velvet and New Leaf Copic trios. I traced over the Hello with the Sakura Clear Star gel pen and added a strip of tiny rhinestones. The Peapod twine is from The Twinery.
