Global Design Team Colour Challenge
I thought I would have a go a the Stampin' Up! Global Design Team Colour Challenge, #GDP081.
The challenge is to make calls card using 'Night Of Navy', Whisper White and A Free colour choice, mine being 'Pear Pizazz' .
First I stamped a piece of 'Night of Navy' card with one of the small flowers in the 'Cottage Greetings' stamp set, using 'Whisper White' ink and then White Emboss Powder and heat setting it,
Next I embossed white card with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, I made a border by die cutting the Border Die from 'Flourish Thinlits in Pear Pizzaz card, then mounting it onto a narrow strip of white card.
I used these three pieces to create the background to my card, mounting it onto first 'Night of Navy' card and then onto my card base.
The decorative part of the card I made using the largest 'Swirl' from the 'Swirly Scribbles Thinlits', which I backed with white card and stamped my 'Thank you' sentiment into the centre.
I stamped some 'Petite Petals ' in 'Night of Navy' ink and punched them out with matching 'Petite Petals' punch, these where arranged around my Swirly wreath, the leaves where from the 'Swirly Scribbles Thinlit' set, die cut from 'Pear Pizazz' card and tucked behind the flowers. I added a tiny pearl jewel to the centre of each flower and coloured it with my Blender Pen and 'Pear Pizazz' ink. I used the same method to colour pearls for opposite corners of my card.
I hope my method is easy enough to follow. I look forward to reading your comments.
I will leave the link below so that you can see other cards that were entered to the same Challenge, you can have a go at the Challenge too, I am thinking of doing 'Colour Challenge' for our Monday Blog Challenge, let me know what you think of that idea too.
Have a lovely day every one,
Love and Hugs
