This past week at Global Design Project they are dong a sketch challenge.
Today I choose to work with a stamp set that is ideal for coloring with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. Actually they are great with what every medium is your favorite. I used the large hibiscus image in shades of blue & crumb cake.
The card has several pieces but it was not difficult to bring together. The card base is crumb cake in standard A2 size. I used both night of navy and balmy blue for matting. The beautiful DSP is from the Needlepoint Nook suite in the Occasions catalog.
The flower image, sentiment base and geometric image were cut with the coordinating Hummingbird framelits. As i mentioned earlier, I colored the flower with Stampin blends in night of navy, balmy blue, old olive, pineapple punch and calypso coral. The thank you sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder. To really make the card really special I added a linen thread bow, a wood element & clear Wink of Stella.
I matted the inside panel with night of navy and stamped off the image twice to give a lighter shading. I stamped the image in full color on the front of the envelope and covered the flat with the other side of the DSP.
I hope that you enjoyed this project today. Be sure to check out all the GDP entries. If you are interested in any of the products I used you can select the link of the item below or select the catalog image link on the sidebar.
