I’m trying to join in each week with the Global Design Project challenges. So far I’m on a roll, two weeks in a row!! Yay, me!! Lol
This week, the challenge is to use the sketch provided by the amazing Teneale Williams.
I started off by looking at my stamps to see if I had an image that would suit the large circle. I thought the flower in the Crazy about You stamp set had some potential so I decided to give it a go. I then flipped through the Pretty Petals DSP stack and selected this lovely Mint Macaron floral to be my background. I then used the My Creak Ink colour selector to give me a colour combo. I started off with Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron and I went with adding Pink Pirouette and Gold Glimmer Paper. It actually suggested So Saffron but I figured gold was better!!
I just love the Striped Satin ribbon in the Holiday catalogue and thought it would accent the vanilla in the dsp. I then added a strip of Tip Top Taupe dotted lace ribbon for some more texture. I stamped the flower 4 times and punched out the largest one then hand cut the other three. I then layered them up with some dimensionals for a bit of height.
I then had a brain storming session with my other stamping bestie, Emma at Vintage Graffiti, who suggested that I stamp the “For onto a layered banner. Doesn’t it look great!! Thank you, Emma!!
I cut the “You” out of Gold glimmer paper using the new Precision Plate and it was so easy to get out of the die. Actually it just fell out!!
Here’s a close up of the detail.
I even put a bit of gold metallic thread behind the flower, but it’s a bit hard to see in the photo. It looks lovely in real life.
I hope you have enjoyed my card!! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
