Pattern Play Class Day 2

Well, it was amazing for me that I actually got my card made and posted on day 1 of the Pattern Play class. Now I am back to being more like myself and I am getting my card for day 2 up on day 3!! On day 2 we were shown how to change patterned paper using background stamps, embossing and ink. I don't have any background stamps that were bold enough for this technique so I went with a PTI flower set that I have. I will say that stamping individual elements with embossing ink made it very hard to REALLY plot out where each item was going, since I couldn't really see where I had already stamped! It was an adventure!!

Card Details:
Stamp: PTI Rosie Posie
Paper: Pebbles Walnut Grove
CardStock: SU Early Espress, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink: Distress Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade
Misc: Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, PTI Headline Alphabet, Viva Decor Pearl Pen Dark Brown

By the way, I apologize for those annoying lines of stitching running through my text. They didn't use to be there and I am not sure how to get rid of them. If anyone knows, I would love some tips!! Thanks

So nice to see you back in blogland! I think I stopped by earlier but you didn't have an updated post. Love your cards for the online class--so good to see your work again!

Love the 'glow' that you achieved with the sponging. Thanks for your kind comments on my card - the grey ink is Whisper by Closer To My Heart.
