February PTI Blog Hop


Monograms, for me, are one of the most elegant designs I know.  The clean and simple versions are my favourite.  We had one on our wedding invitations many years ago, an intertwined I and C which I loved.  So I was overjoyed to see it as this month's blog hop theme.  


I seem to be on a bit of a red, white and black bender at the moment, but when thinking minimalist, black and white with a dash  of colour makes it for me.  There are tonnes of images out there and the style that appealed to me was this design.  I have computer printed our name, stamped my all time favourite wreath and diecut the "J".  

I have to say, this Ritz Glitter is brilliant!  I have always found using it messy, but once you rub over the glitter on the diecut, there was none anywhere else.  



I popped the J up for a bit of dimension and remembered my stash of tiny 2mm gems
