Make It Monday #69: Inspiration Into Unique Sketches Card # 2

This is the card for one of the sketches on the Papaetrey Ink MIM...

Sketch-6                                                                 This is the sketch, for my card.  I have a friend who is having a BIG birthday in a few days, so I needed a special card.  I saw this technique for the "wood" paneling on Stamp TV...I do not have the IP from PTI yet, so I used my scoring product to score the lines, then I rubbed the ink pad directly onto the card face.  If you are wondering about my polka dots borders, it is washi tape that I found at Michaels...three rolls in a package...a good deal!

Stamps:  PTI Movers & Shakers, Pretty Peonies
Ink:  Sweet Blush, spring moss, raspberry fizz, momento angel pink for the wash, copics for highlights
washi tape, Michael's
Paper:  PTI white 


  1. This is one fantastic card Colleen! I LOVE it. The pretty peonies look sooo beautiful and the scoring to get the panels is such a great idea. I love the effect of it with the ink.

  2. This is gorgeous , love the soft pink colors . What a great idea to do the scoring. No way I never would hav guessed washi tape, I thought it was paper.......great job with that!

  3. Lovely feminine card with the peonies! Very clever how you scored the lines instead of the other technique.

  4. Such a pretty card. I really popped out in the gallery.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
