Today's challenge was to use a pigment ink overlaid with a die ink. I was surprised that I actually owned a pigment ink, which I must have gotten in the first months of card-making a year or so ago! I didn't even know the difference between the two but needed something to make "snow" with. I used some ferns from Meadow Greens with Fresh Snow hybrid ink for the first layer. Sweet blush, Hibiscus Pink, Summer Sunrise and Harvest Gold for Flowers - New Leaf for the leaves. The background ferns show up much better on the darker colors. The sentiment comes from Sentiment Signs. All PTI.
P.S. (Feb. 19)
I was on Facebook last night--- and there was MY card!! I was absolutely dumbfounded. What a compliment - it had been picked as an example by the PTI ladies! I feel like I have finally graduated from calling myself just a "beginner".
