Hawaiian Shores Meet Asian Fusion

I got the newest ink and buttons from PTI today called Hawaiian Shores (hope to get the paper in the mail tomorrow).  I LOVE, LOVE this new color!  It is my favorite color yet!  Way to go PTI!

I made a simple card using Hawaiian Shores ink & buttons and PTI's stamp set "Asian Fusion".


What did I tell you?  Pretty color huh!  I wanted this card to just have a simplicity to it.  A calmness.  And, I think I accomplished that.  Instead of ribbon, I used buttons to accent the image...only 3 buttons on each side and then the image is popped up over the top of the largest buttons with pop dots.


The centers of the flowers are colored in with a white gel pen and I really like that look.  I also stamped one of the border images under the buttons but it is so light you can barely see it popping up above the buttons.  If I made this card again, I'd just leave that stamped strip off.  I also wanted to define the edges of the image panel and so I used one of the tea duo inks around the outside of it.  That added a little more depth to the card.  Can I say again how much I LOVE this color????
