When I first saw the colour’s for this week’s challenge at the Global Design Project, I wasn’t too sure about them. But after looking at the team’s gorgeous projects, I decided to give it a try.
Here is the challenge.
These lovely soft colours said flowers to me, so I had a look at my stamp sets and decided upon Butterfly Basics as it has a nice big large flower.
Then I grabbed out some paper and decided to put the Daffodil Delight layer at the back as it is a fairly bright yellow. I then added a Soft Sky layer and then another Whisper White to do the stamping business on.
I love the honeycomb stamp in the set and, using Crumb Cake ink, stamped a few images, stamping off for a couple of them for a softer look. I then used my Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz markers and coloured in the flower.
I decided to make a banner for the sentiment. I am seriously in love with the banner triple punch. It makes me happy every time I punch a nice, even banner. Sad I know!! To curl the banner, I used my bone folder and then a few dimensionals to attach it to the card.
I then cut out a Soft Sky butterfly using my new precision plate. The plate makes it so much easier to get out all the little pieces and it cuts perfect each time. You always need a bit of bling on a card, so I added a circle of gold metallic thread.
I’m quite happy with how it turned out!! I think this will make a great card for my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday!!
