Papertrey Ink's 8th Anniversary, challenge number one!

WOW this is SO exciting, Papertrey Ink is having their 8th year Anniversary!!!!  Day one, their first challenge is to pick a color recipe and a sketch recipe. These are the ones I chose.

I started with the tag sale #7 die and used blueberry sky, spring rain, ocean tides and aqua mist  and water colored it and added splatters of water.  The hello is a die from Wet Paint and has 5 layers cut out of smokey shadow paper. The background is the burlap plate and the tags I seen on Heathers blog, pine is here, it uses the Happy Spots paper.  It is very hard to see in the picture but I did use wink of stella on top of the hello, I actually did 3 coats.

I hope everyone enjoys Papertrey's 8th Anniversary, I know I will!!!  Thanks to all the designers for all their inspiration, thanks to everyone that works for Papertrey!!

Thanks for looking!
