I absolutely love the colours for the Global Design Project colour challenge this week!
In fact I love them so much that they are the colours of my lounge.
I actually made two cards this week and could not choose between the two…. I’ll let you decide on which one you prefer.
I created a graduated background using three yellow ink colours. I then stamped the lovely lupin style flower onto the watercolour paper in versarmark and embossed in white embossing powder.
I added the border and the sentiment using Basic Grey Ink and then coloured the petals using an aqua painter and whisper white ink. For the more intense white colouring I picked up the white ink directly from the ink refill.
I added a couple of vellum butterflies and rhinestones and it was complete.
You may be wondering how I created the background, well I plan to do a periscope video on Monday 29th Feb at 8.45pm. Apologies if any of you are proposing to your loved ones at that time 🙂 thankfully the periscope video is saved for 24 hours so you can watch it later.
What is Periscope I hear you ask? Periscope is a live video broadcast from your phone so you can see live how I created this background and comment and share whilst I am recording so you can ask questions etc.
You have to download the Periscope app and follow me @michellelast. If you sign up and follow me you will be notified that my video is going LIVE and you will be able to comment and ask questions live on the broadcast.
The cool thing about this card is that the butterflies are on the inside of the card, so when you open it…..
they stay on the background – cool huh? Can you see the colours of the butterflies are graduated too?
I love the dimension from the wings of the butterflies –
So now its time to see what the other design team members have made using the same colour challenge. I have had a sneak peek and you are going to be blown away! Go to www.Global-Design-Project.com to be inspired and also take part in this weeks challenge.

SO happy 29th Feb, we won’t see another one of these for quite some time!
