Global Design Project - Colour Challenge


I am feeling so inspired with all the lovely new products in the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue.  I have chosen to use just a couple in my card today.  Can you spot them?!

The lovely team at the Global Design Project have a colour challenge this week and I have used this as the basis for my card.

A fun colour combo and one to really get the creative juices flowing.  This is my take on the challenge:-

My background was a bit of a happy accident!  I stamped the biggest flower from Penned and Painted on Crumb Cake cardstock and then held the Aqua Painter above until a drop of water fell onto the centre of each flower.  Then you have to be patient and let the water dry completely.  The centres became lighter in colour and looked more watercoloured.

I added one of new doilies from the S/S catalogue to the corners but coloured it using an Early Espresso marker and then added my Wink of Stella clear pen.  It really sparkles and always gives me a buzz when I see the shimmer.

To create the centre topper, I cut a frame from the Stitched framelits in Real Red cardstock and then added my heat embossed sentiment from Suite Sentiments to a circle of vellum.  Finally I added another flower with a gem coloured in Real Red to match.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Happy crafting,
