Blog Hop Inspiration

print designed by the talented irtsya, purchase a variety of items with this pattern HERE

I love that this floral print is a little outside the box. With blue toned leaves and all the peach and berry tones of the blooms. There is an amazing softness to the print achieved with watercoloring and speckles. Pull some of these elements out to create your very own project. Mix in some of your favorite floral products and a fabulous sentiment. Try your hand at a watercoloring technique that you haven't been brave enough to attempt before. Experiment and maybe you will discover a whole new side to your artistry!


 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on May 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge".

Marcia Hill embossed and watercolored a beautiful peony flower and tucked it into the prettiest little teacup. The tone on tone background and frame die cut detail are perfection!


Diana L. created a beautiful floral background with a soft watercolor effect. Her bright die cut sentiment is the perfect touch and coordinates beautifully with the background.


Cindy Boney created a beautiful floral background that tied in the colors of the inspiration piece perfectly. The way she masked the background to create a spot for the sentiment is genius!

Congratulations to the winners! Please email customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thank you to everyone who played along! There were some truly amazing projects submitted!
