Global Design Project #252

Hey Everyone

The challenge at Global Design Project is CASE the Designer. When I saw the card was this gorgeous one from my Artisan friend, Emma Goddard, I thought no way can I CASE that! I remember the first time I saw it.  Pretty sure my mouth was hanging open for a good few minutes at how absolutely stunning it was.

I decided to give it a go and came up with the card below. You gotta push yourself out of your comfort zone sometimes, right?

I wanted to use similar colours as Emma used, and of course I had to get flowers in on my card.  The flowers I’ve added to my card are the from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set.  I coloured them with a combination of So Saffron, Mango Melody and Dark Calypso Coral Blends.  The reason for so many blends, was that I was trying out colours and kept adding until I got to the shade I liked.  I also added some Dark Smoky Slate Blend to create depth to the flower.  The feather I’ve added to the images has been stamped in Black Memento Ink and then daubed with Crumb Cake Ink.  Some Winc of Stella was added to give it a little shimmer.

I coloured the background with my Light So Saffron Blend to create a watercoloured-like background. I then took my Aqua Painter and some Melon Mambo Ink and flicked a smattering of ink all over the card. It’s very faint, but I also stamped the background stamp from Tasteful Touches in Sahara Sand Ink, on the background.

The sentiment I’ve stamped directly to my card base is from the same stamp set.  The fussy cut leaves are also from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set.  These leaves have been created by applying Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Markers directly to the image.  I then huffed on them with my breath and stamped them.

To finish off my card, I took my Light Melon Mambo Blend and coloured a strip of Braided Linen Trim. Three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were also added to bling it up.

Thanks for stopping by.
