Thanks for popping by my blog today. I am blessed to be sharing another week and another challenge for the Global Design Project!
This week is a sketch challenge! I love a good sketch – and this one is a great basic design that is open for so much interpretation!
Here’s a look at this week’s challenge/sketch.
You can pop by the GDP blog to check out all the other designer’s amazing projects and participate in the challenge yourself.
Here’s a look at my card for this week’s challenge…
I chose to use the beautiful Artfully Layered bundle from the new Mini Catalogue. This bundle is part of the Artfully Composed suite. It’s actually my favourite new suite from the Mini Catalogue!
I really wanted to feature the large leaf stamp and do some multi coloured stamping! I have used the Stamparatus to help me with this technique! I stamped my leaf in Soft Sea Foam and then went back with a Sponge Dauber and added some Mint Macaron to areas of the stamp before stamping the image again. Lastly I went in with some Just Jade ink and added some to the outside edges of the leaf and stamped it a final time.
The Stamparatus is great for this technique as you can continue stamping in the exact same position!
I used this leaf image to create a layer on my card similar to that in the sketch. I added some of the All Together Designer Series Paper as I really wanted a black and white bold design and this Designer Series Paper pack is full of fantastic black & white designs.
Here’s a close up image of my finished card where you can see some of the texture and detail.
For my background piece I have die cut out the leaf image (shown on the front of the card in Vellum) and adhered these pieces to a white background. I then took my Blending Brushes and added some Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaron ink right over the top.
I then used my Versamark Ink Pad to softly swipe some Versamark over the top and heat embossed in Gold. Such a fun look!
I finalised my card with a sentiment cut in Gold Foil from the Amazing Thanks dies and embellished with some Linen Thread and Faux Sea Glass shapes which are also from the Artfully Composed suite.
Here’s a look at the inside of my card where I have stamped the leaf image in Just Jade and added a simple sentiment in Memento Black. I finished it off with a strip of the All Together Designer Series Paper.
This card was so much fun to make!
