February Blog hop - PTI

This months blog hop at Papertrey Ink seemed to pass completely under my radar until I noticed the announcement a few hours ago.
I tried playing around with water colours and clear embossing powder at first by I always make my paper too wet so the colours bleed under the embossing. So I switched to inset die cuts instead and was much happier with the result.
The background is made by sponging a variety of PTI inks and a few distress inks and then spraying the whole think with Mr Hueys opaque white mist.
I love the new "swoosh" set, and was pleased to have an excuse to play with it.
