#GDP 029 Colour Challenge


The designers at Global Design Project  have come up with an unusual colour combo this week. As always with a colour challenge, my usual starting point is to pick a DSP that matches the colours. In this case I had none. And while bermuda bay and early espresso are a couple of my faves, I can't even remember using tangelo twist at all. So how was I suppose to put them all together?


With water!! A bermuda bay wash for the background colour and a sprtiz of water over the stamping!

Project Recipe
Stamps: Kinda eclectic and flowering fields
Card: tangelo twist, early espresso and watercolour paper
Ink: bermuda bay, tangelo twist and early espresso
Accessories: water spritzer, butterfly punch, self adhesive pearls and wink of stella gold brush

#GDP 027 Thank you


A thank you card is the theme for this week's Global Design Project challenge. I have kept it simple with a few touches of bling. Unfortunately, the wink of stella clear doesn't photograph well but I have used it on the small flowers to give a lovely glitter shine over the pink cardstock.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Circle of Spring
Card: blushing bride, mint macaroon and whisper white
Ink: versamark, black memento, melon mambo, mint macaroon and blushing bride
Accessories: Wondrous wreath framelit, white embossing powder, wink of stella clear, honeycomb embossing folder, self adhesive pearls and white cotton twine

JAI 302 Colour Challenge


This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to use the colours blackberry bliss, rich razzleberry and tip top taupe.  Beautiful colours, but difficult to get the balance right without making the card appear dark.  I have used the same embossing folder on both circles, just used one side debossed and the other embossed.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Timeless textures and wetlands (sentiment)
Card: tip top taupe, rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss and very vanilla
Ink: blackberry bliss, rich razleberry and tip top taupe
Accesssories: 2.5" circle punch, lacy brocade embossing folder (retired) and tip top taupe lace ribbon

#GDP 026 Sketch Challenge


I think I will be using this week's sketch at Global design Project often. It is a simple sketch with all sorts of possibilities. The only change I made was to move the sentiment down the card. Here is the sketch banner:

Stamps: Flowering flourishes and Sky is the limit (SAB)
