The color palette for the blog hop over at Papertrey is divine. I don't know about other people's experience, but I find PTI's colors to be more WOW! in person, than on my computer screen. This challenge left me thinking there was nothing that couldn't be accomplished if I just used wonderful 'Summer Sunrise' ink. I just went for two tags. Tags are small experiments I can handle. For both tags I mixed and matched sets. The pinks and yellows reminded me of a 'gold flame' honeysuckle in my backyard. 'Mat Stack 5 provided the die-cut and most of the stamps. I used one half of a ornament stamp from the set to make the leaves, and for the stem, the dashed stitches from button boutique. 'Happy Birthday to you!' is from Flower Fusion #9 done with StazOn 'Timber Brown' because black was too severe for the palette I thought.
The second tag I'm not so happy with, but I just can't put my finger on why. I tried after the fact watermarking with VersaMark 'Dazzle Champagne' to give a bit more interest...toooo subtle. There was a discovery though; watermark ink on dye ink will slightly deepen to hue, just as it does on colored paper. All except the Happy Birthday stamp (from 'Happy Day'), the images are from 'Iconic Images', one of my go to sets. The die is 'Mat Stack 3'. A little DecoArt 'Glamour Dust' and glue pen were used to finish off the pair.
