Wistful Wishes

The challenge at the Global Design Project this week is a color challenge and these colors were a bit of a challenge for me.

GDP029 Colour

What I love about participating in challenges like this is how a card evolves from a sketch or color combination that I would never have thought to put together.  I really admire the design teams of these challenges.  These challenges are a great way to stretch your creativity, not to mention they become somewhat addictive!  Here is what I came up with for this challenge….

I used several stamp sets for this rather simple card.  First, I stamped the flourish from the Everything Eleanor stamp set in Early Expresso.  Then I used one of the smallest stamps in the Timeless Textures stamp set to stamp the little background blotches.  I stamped them in Tangelo Twist and Bermuda Bay by stamping them off twice before stamping on the card for a very subtle effect.

The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and punched with Decorative Label punch.  This was popped up with dimensionals.  The flowers, from the Petite Petals stamp set, were stamped in Early Expresso and colored using Stampin’ Write markers then punched with the coordinating Petite Petals punch.

I left the inside without a sentiment.  These type of cards are great to have on hand.  I can add a stamped sentiment or just write a personal note.

Thanks very much for stopping in today and I hope that you get to enjoy some stamping time, too!
