A new Technique and New Paptertrey!

Don't groan, I got my new PTI sets out again this morning! Lynn sets the most fantastic technique challenges over on SCS ... you really should try them out! I don't know where she gets all her interesting ideas, but keep them coming Lynn!

Today we were challenged to make a background by rolling marbles around in different re-inkers ... such a clever idea! I quite like how this looks ... even if it is a little 'messy' for my usual style ... sometimes messy can be good (although not in my kitchen!)

Recipe
Stamps : Papertrey 'Scattered Showers'
Cardstock : Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss
Ink : Choc Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red
Accessories : Round Beads, Re-inkers (Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red), Scallop Edge Punch, RHR Taffeta Ribbon, Piercer, Dimensionals, Stickles

Had to laugh at Michele's comment! Your card is lovely, I really like the marble rolled back ground and all the fun colors!

This is really a stunning card, Emma. I love how your background looks with your adorable umbrella. I really appreciate you playing along with the challenges, Emma. You're a real inspiration!
