Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Dog Days Are Over.” While we still feel the heat from a long, hot summer, August is a perfect time of year to start planning our Fall-themed cards. The projects in our hop will showcase Autumn, back-to-school and warm colors – you might even see a dog or two! We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Country Home is such a beautiful new stamp set in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. It is so sweet and reminds me of the simple life. Because of this, I kept my card very simple to allow the image to be the only focal point. I colored the flowers and pitcher with our blends and then added a hint of a scored border. Layering it only once gives it a feeling of a matted picture.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, my dear friend Julie DiMatteo at The Paper Pixie.
