Paint By Number Challenge




It is PTI's 3 year anniversary, and there is a lot going on over at their blog. One of their challenges is a paint by number sketch. Since I am not very creative when it comes to screen names, my PTI forum name is Tiffany Heilman. Since my forum name starts with a "T" I had to use the blue series color combo with the posted sketch. More details on the challenge are HERE



This was surprisingly difficult. You would think it would be easy, since I was given a layout and a color combo. It was difficult to fit all the colors in, especially the aqua mist. It had a little too much green in the color to blend easily. In the end I added buttons and really liked how the card turned out.

Supplies:
Paper:
Kraft cardstock (SU!); White cardstock (Neenah); Patterned Paper (PTI)
Ink: Snow White (PTI); Not Quite Navy (SU!)
Stamps: Signature Greetings (PTI)
Extras: Scallop Punch (SU!); Buttons (Making Memories and Autumn Leaves); Corner Chomper; Stitching using my not as fabulous as Katie's sewing machine : )
