Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge July

I loved the Inspiration Photo for this month’s blog hop.  Here it is:

Mixing patterns is an art and a difficult one at times.  I wanted to capture the patterns and the “old but new” sense in the design.  I was wishing I had a furniture image set so I could try to recreate the scene, but since I did not have such a stamp, I settled on creating a sweater instead.  The Fair Isle stamp set along with Color Pop Florals helped me capture the sense of pattern mixture and the colours came from coral and blue dye inks from Simon Says Stamp.
