Life Is Beautiful #GDP096
Every week the team over at the Global Design Project set us new challenge. It changes weekly and it could be anything from a colour challenge, a sketch challenge, layout, theme or like this week a CASE the designer challenge. CASE stands for Copy And Selectively Edit.
The designer whose work we have been given to case is the talented Tanja Kolar who has used Dragonfly Dreams to make her beautiful card.
I have been loving the Just Add Colour Speciality Designer Series Papers this week so I decided to incorporate them into the challenge. These watering cans are so pretty. I used Old Olive as my card base and the Speciality DSP as my layer. I chose which watering can I wanted to use and sat down to a film with my youngest and spent a lovely hour colouring in with my water colour pencils, blender pen and a little fussy cutting. I cut a square in Whisper White using the Stitched Shape Framelit Dies for a back ground for my watering can. I then cut another square from Old Olive using the Layering Squares Dies. I love how these sets nest perfectly. I added some foliage and flowers from the DSP too. I have coloured my can in with clear Wink Of Stella to give it a little sparkle. Can you tell?
My Sentiment is from the Eastern Palace stamp set stamped in Pacific Point to match the detail on the can. I think it fits the card perfectly.
Hop over to the Global Design Project to see what the talented team have created and all the other entries into this week's challenge here. Its fun to take part in the challenge and also to see what every one comes up with. Maybe I have inspired you to take part too.
I've enjoyed making cards with the Just Add Colour Papers this week. This is what I have been up to.
The houses are cute. They reminded me of the In The City stamp set, so I combined it with that to make a new baby card. Some of them at raised on dimensionals to give a little depth.
These teapots are beautiful, I have coloured them using the water colour pencils and blender pen again and teamed it with the Label Me Pretty stamps and Pretty Label punch. I love the Lemon Lime twist in the background paper I have used from the Eastern Palace Speciality DSP.
These Just Add Colour Designer Speciality Papers are available in the Stampin Up catalogue and are also part of a paper share I am currently offering. Find out all about that here
Its so therapeutic to sit and colour in and then create something lovely with what you have made. I hope you like them.
