PTI October 2017 Blog Hop

Well, I must admit that the inspiration photos had me quite stumped for ideas this month! I finally decided to focus on the blues in all the photos, especially the Phthlo-type blues, which can be seen in the middle to bottom portion of my focal panel. October is Pastor appreciation month, so this will be going to our husband and wife pastor team, and a thank you for all that they do.
This one was done using Daniel Smith watercolours, and Year of Psalms:April, which was heat embossed in white.



I made a second one, using Distress Oxide inks. Why make one, when you can make two??


Thanks for looking!

  2. Kathryn, a lot of people said they were stumped (me included) with the inspiration photo. But your two watercolor cards are beautiful. I like that you used a cover plate for your background.

  3. You were certainly not alone with trying to come up with something for this challenge but you have succeeded admirably. Both cards are wonderful and I am sure your pastor will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Cheers.
