#GDP022 Sketch Challenge

This week's sketch at Global Design Project is just fabulous for all sorts of cards. I have gone for the clean look in this thank you card. I love the black and white patterns in the Go Wild paper stack which are suitable for any occasion.

Here is the sketch to be used for the challenge:
Project Recipe
Stamps: Serene silhouettes and Circle of spring (sentiment)
Ink: Island indigo and memento black
Card: whisper white and basic black
Accessories: Go Wild paper stack and 1 1/4 inch circle and 1 3/8 circle punches.

Just Add a 'V'

This week at Just Add Ink we are asked to add a 'V' to our project. I have already made hubby's Valentine card so I decided to make tags for these chocolate hearts, one for each of my kids. All very sparkly. The chocolates are on sticks which I threaded down between the dsp and the backing cardstock.

Project Recipe
Card: Real Red, gold metallic and basic black
Accessories: gold sequin ribbon, gold bakers twine, Go wild dsp, gold glitter spray, metallic sequins, red and gold glitter paper, crystal effects and dazzling diamonds glitter.

#GDP021 Colour Challenge

This week is a colour challenge set by Brian King at Global Design Project and it is a difficult combination.

I really had no idea which colour amount would work best. More melon and less wisteria or the other way around and what about the blue? So I made three cards using the different colours. I also had no DSP to match these colours, so I had to make that too.

Project Recipe
Stamps: You've got this, gorgeous grunge (background) and watercolour wings (sentiment)
Ink: Black memento, wisteria wonder, melon mambo and bermuda bay
Card: melon mambo, wisteria wonder, bermuda bay and whisper white
Accessories: 21/2 inch circle punch, self adhesive rhinestones and a retired punch I can't remember the name of!

Just Add Nature

That is the name of this week's challenge at Just Add Ink... to add nature. The stamping is kept to a minimum with this card, instead I cut those gorgeous flowers from the English garden DSP.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Build a Birthday (sentiment) and timeless textures (background on pink card).
Card: Whisper white, blushing bride and old olive
Ink: old olive and blushing bride
Accessories: English garden DSP, self adhesive rhinestones
