Global Design Project #GDP33

The design team over at Global Design Project has been hosting wonderful challenges for us all.  I just love all the wonderful projects brought to us each week by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world!!   The latest challenge is a color challenge.   Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, and Sahara Sand.  This is a fabulous color combination that can be quite springy, but can lean it other seasons as well.  As I was making my card, I thought my background would make a fab. card for a Auburn fan.  So, it just might come back around when football season rolls around.  (Though, I think I will just let someone else make that card ….hummm…but, the idea is rolling around in the head)  Anyway, on with the color challenge.  Global Design Project 033

When thinking about the card I wanted to make.  I could see stripes of Night of Navy and Calypso Coral.  I had several different different choices of how to make these stripes.  I could have used masking, or the striped decorative mask or even strips of paper.  In the end, Strips of paper won out.  I wanted a bold background that was purely navy and coral.  The simple stamped image from Your Sublime really stands out against the bold background.    Your Sublime

These adorable images are so much fun to color!!!  I just love stamping with them.



Here are a few details:

  • The wheelbarrow image is stamped in versa mark ink on Hot Press watercolor paper and then heat embosses using basic black embossing powder.
  • Using Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, and Sahara Sand ink refills and a Aqua Painter the image was water-colored.
  • The background was made by gluing 1/2 inch strips of Night of Nave and Calypso Coral card stock to a panel of Whisper White.

Just so that you know!!!    Back embossing powder will be retiring soon!  So, be sure to buy yours now!!!
