One of my goals for this year to to participate with sketch or color challenges. The Global Design Project has a different color challenge for this week - Delightful Dijon, Silver, and a color of my choice. I never used this color combination before, so I was a bit stumped at first. I decided I wanted flowers and so I used a technique we are doing at my clubs this month. I filled my aqua painter with rubbing alcohol and use it the same way to color the flowers. It reminds me of the Blendability pens Stampin' Up once sold. Here is my card.
I used a variety of products on this card. The flowers are from the stamp set "So In Love". The words are from the set "Special Reason" which has matching framelits which I used to make the leaves. I've seen some really pretty cards using these framelits on Pinterest. I can't wait to play some more with this set.
At the top of the card I used a small piece of Moroccan Designer Washi tape, a piece of leftover silver ribbon, and a staple to hold it all together. I used a small piece of Cupcakes and Carousels DSP along the side. This patterned paper helped me decide on my third color.
I used Delightful Dijon to color the silver embossed flowers and then fussy cut them.I then added the silver leaves and silver wire behind the flowers. My 'free' color is Bermuda Bay. I really like how these 3 colors go together. I'll be using this combo again. Here's the inside. I kept it simple.
I hoped you liked this card today and will try this combination, too. I also used the sketch # 225 from Paper Craft Crew Challenge to help design my card. You might want to try this sketch or see other samples on their web site.
Have a great day!
