Its been a little while since I've been able to participate in a PTI blog hop. I LOVED the colors and striped pattern in the inspiration photo this month. I had it in mind to recreate the stripes and mitre the corners of the stripes and oh so much that would have been A LOT of work. Instead I ended up going more simple, inspired by the colors and with an homage to the stripes
I did a little rock-n-roll using Summer Sunrise and Melon Berry for the leaves and a rock-n-roll shading technique using aqua mist on the acorns (rock-n-roll shading is doing the rock-n-roll technique with just 1 color and stamping off once to get the lighter version of the ink). I got a lot of compliments on my scribbled aqua mist acorns a while back so I made aqua acorns again. I'm nothing if not a creature of habit :)
I put in a couple of red stripes to carry the striped theme over and added the large poppy button for balance.
Thanks for stopping by!
