Here is my card for this weeks Global Design Project. It is a colour challenge and I found it REALLY hard!
And sshhh don’t tell anyone but I really don’t like my card 😉 But it’s Good Friday and I need to get this posted so I can enjoy the weekend and time with my family.
Especially more precious as our lovely son Dom is off on his travels again. He leaves next week to head back to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and China for three and half months. What an adventure he is going to have!
So let’s get on with the blog post so I get away from the computer…
The Tangelo Twist really threw me as I am not a lover of Orange and especially not this shade and I hardly had anything in my stash in this colour. Luckily I own the Colour Me Irresistible DSP which is white with white embossed images on it so you can colour it any colour you wish! I coloured the flower panel and the diagonal stripe piece.
I also cut a butterfly thinlit in coaster board and coloured it with marker and daubers and also added a little wink of stella to the wings to add a bit of sparkle.
This card has a lot going on. I did not like it so kept throwing more textures, patterns and elements to it and still don’t like it 🙂
I really challenge you to make something with this sketch and join the Global Design Project this week. It is really good to step outside of your comfort zone and more of the time you will be delighted with the results.
Make sure you pop on over to the Global Design Project and see what the other design team members made using this colour combo. You are sure to be WOW’ed.
