PTI Make it Monday-Blown Ink

Hey Everyone!

Another absolutely gorgeous day today in my neck of the woods.  Played in the backyard for a little while with C3 and had lunch on top of the fort thingy (umbrella added for extra shade).  Couldn't ask for a better day!  Maybe more nap time from little one so I could get stuff done but otherwise a glorious day!  Not too hot.  Warm breeze.  Sunshine.  Perfect!

The folks over at Papertrey Ink have a cool Make it Monday technique that I just had to partake in-Blown Ink!  I've actually used this technique with my girlies.  So much fun!  Definitely need to let go of the reigns on this one and just let the ink fall where it may.  When I used this technique with my girls it was just a random smattering of fun-to-do colours but my subconscious couldn't help but pull the blots into tree shapes.  So that's where this card stems from!  I thought I'd try to use this technique to actually make a tree of sorts.  I think it worked out!  Yay!

The sentiment is from PTI, the owl is from Sassafrass Lass.  I used Distress Ink-Vintage Photo re-inker for the blown ink and a Martha Stewart border punch for the hearts which I also covered in Glossy Accents for some shine.  The patterned paper is Recollections (from Michaels).

Off to enjoy the weather!  I hope you're enjoying your day as well where ever you are!

Thanks for stopping by!
