Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge


Today is the Papertrey June Blog Hop and this month's challenge was an inspiration photo.  I took the inspiration from the photo pretty literally with the gradient in color for the background and the layout of the photo.  The Kraft piece of cardstock was scored with my ScorBuddy to add some texture and interest.  I used the Tiny Tags set along with the Tiny Tags Die and some Rustic Cream Button Twine for the "hanging images". 

The gradient background was created using sponges and Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy, Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Spring Moss and New Leaf ink.  You can see more interpretations of the inspiration photo by visiting here.  Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful effect you got from sponges! I love the 'laundry line' of tags - too cute :)

I love how you've created the colour effect similar to the inspiration photo. It makes such a preety bsackdrop to the tiny tags.

I love the soft, gradient background. You've used a technique I want to learn (sponging the background). The colors are perfect and I really like the tiny tags. Great interpretation.
