PTI MIM #60 - Beyond The Clouds

Today's PTI Make It Monday #60 is on Generational Stamping. I have tried this technique before but not using an array of colors.

The technique is really fun with beautiful effects and depending on the colors used, you can get even 3 - 4 generational stamping out of 1 inked stamp.

Here is my take:
I started this card with noone specifically to give to but as I was creating, I got to know that one of my mum's friend's daughter is facing some health issues. The family has been a great support to my family especially my mum during difficult times and it's sad to know that life isn't going too well for them at present.

There are so many meaningful sentiments from PTI. I was also contemplating to use a couple of sentiments from Beautiful Blessings but decided to go with this. The card was also embossed with canvas impression plate.  I'm so loving the subtle texture it gives especially on 1-layered cards.

Supplies Used:
Papers - PTI Rustic Cream
Inks - PTI Pure Poppy, Melon Sorbet, Autumn Rose, Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold, JBS Brown Sugar, Ranger Distress Inks Antique Linen, Vintage Photo
Stamps - PTI Beautiful Butterflies, Movers & Shakers Sentiments, Framed Out #1, Homemade Hodgepodge
Others - PTI Canvas IP, AC Twine White, Hero Arts Mixed Accents

  7. Fabulous card! I almost bought that stamp set--wish I had! I don't think this MIM card is entered with this specific post, so you might need to re-load it into Inlinkz.
