PTI 8th Anniversary

It's Papertrey Inks 8th Birthday celebrations this month.
I have followed Nichole's blog since the beginning..almost!

For a long time I just drooled over the stuff that was released each month but at the time could not justify the costs of buying!!!
I treated myself to a whole shedload the Christmas Phil died and have
a. Hardly ever played with them since (shame on me) and...
b. Never bought anymore because the import duty I had to pay was beyond belief!

I decided it was time to try to contact with my neat and tidy side but it is proving to be a bit difficult!!! ROFL
(Also you can't deny that the possibility of winning the the $300 grand prize is a big incentive too) ;)

This is my first attempt using the sketch and colour recipe choices.
This uses the three similar objects and ground them on a strip of cardstock or ribbon sketch.
Colours (or what looks similar in brackets....'cos I don't possess any Papertrey Inks!)
Summer Sunrise (Wild Honey distress)
Berry Sorbet (Worn Lipstick distress)
Ripe Avocado (Peeled Paint distress)
Spring Moss (Shabby Shutters distress)
Aqua Mist (Tumbled Glass distress)

I'm fairly happy with this....those teacups are particularly cute....
...although I find it hard to stick to sketches too! ;)
Thanks for looking

Stamps used
Background Basics Retro and Botanical for the strip of cardstock
