Global Design Project #34

Hello again, today I'm playing along with the Global Design Project challenge blog

This week's challenge #GDP034 was to use this sketch from the very talented Teneale Williams, an Australian Demo.
 I knew straight away that I wanted to use the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set which has a great watercolour effect stamp that used for my backround.
I placed a strip of removable tape across the centre of my card, then stamped the image three times to give an ombre effect. When I pulled the tape off, I was left with a well defined area where I added my sentiment, which I die cut using the Greetings Thinlets. I seem to be using these thinlets on every card I make at the minute, I just love them!
I used the small star stamp from the set and embossed them a few times with Versamark and gold embossing powder and that was my card done! Sometimes the simplest cards make the biggest statement.
You can find all the products I used in my card in my online shop, just click the link below

  1. Great card Clare, thanks for joining us this week xx

  2. Love the colours of your project! Ha ha, I just noticed we used the same stamp set! But in a really different way..

  3. Simple, but gorgeous. I love the gold embossing with your choice of blue watercolor. Thanks for playing with us at Global Design Project.

  4. Very nice card - looks like you watercolored it but now I see it was a stamp. A lot less time consuming with a similar look! I really like how you left a spot for the sentiment.

  5. I love the ombré effect Clare. Lovely card. Make sure you pin your project to the official Global Design Project Pinterest Board. Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Global Design Project challenge xx

  6. Such a great use of that watercolor splash, Clare. I adore the opening for the thanks. Thanks for playing along with this week's GDP sketch!
