Karen and I found a few minutes earlier this week to give the Global Design Project a try. The challenge was fun because you had so many options. This is the sketch we followed:
Karen’s card with its simple hello greeting is a beautiful study in pastels. The cheery English Garden DSP from Stampin’ Up makes this card sing, and the stitched ovals from Memory Box create a simple elegance. The Mint Macaron, So Saffron, and Very Vanilla also from SU add just the right background to pull her creation together nicely.
My card is from the same sketch, and shows the great versatility of this challenge. I used watercolor pens and the Rose Red ink pad from Stampin’ Up for the background. With just a touch of Old Olive I turned the background into a floral image–perhaps a tulip I think. Using the fun ‘happy’ die from Whimsical Stamps I cut the sentiment and lifted it by cutting the same image from coaster board. A bit of stamping in Smokey Slate with the Gorgeous Grunge collection and two candy dots rounds out this project.
We hope you found some inspiration in our cards and will visit again soon. You might also like to visit the GDP blog at http://www.globaldesignproject.com for more inspiration.
