Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop–Love Has Wings

PTI blog hop logo

I loved the colour combos PTI provided as inspiration for this month’s blog hop. I don’t have quite a few of them though as I’m still working with a 2009 paper pack so I went with the combo shown below.

The little house is a layered die cut which resembles chipboard. It is made of three layers with an additional roof layer and the patterned paper layer. The heart section is only one layer thick so it is recessed into the house.

I used a new technique I developed for the leaves. I turned the leaves upside down and scored the veins. Then I flipped it back over and folded each score line upwards, away from the scoring. This cracked the score lines giving a vintage. distressed look. Then I sponged ink over the cracked score lines to accentuate them.
