GDP#281 - Colour Challenge with Art Gallery & Dragonfly Garden stamp sets & Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper

 Hello and welcome!  Thx for visiting today.

The Global Design Project (GDP) challenge is a Colour Challenge this week, using Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Blushing Bride.  And I found this challenge to be a bit difficult, why ? I'm not sure, maybe because I don't gravitate to this colour combination naturally? or maybe because I don't even own a Real Red ink pad  :)  What! yes that’s correct, I don’t own a Real Red ink pad, (I’m more of a Cherry Cobbler girl)  Whatever the reason, its precisely why I'm participating in this challenge -  to expand my creativity and have fun!

Please click on the card to be taken to the Global Design Project #281 post and prepare to be inspired with the creativity!

Here's the details for this card:

Blushing Bride 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.

Love Always Specialty Designer Series Paper cut in two pieces,  1 1/2 x 5 1/2  & 1 1/2 X 4 1/2   *** and here's my side note ***  this awesome paper has a pattern repeat, do you think my brain could get the measurements correct today? - no! Ugghh  - my trix for this one is cut your smaller piece first, line it up with a bigger piece of paper, find the pattern repeat and then cut the bigger piece to the 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 size.  Does that make sense?  If not email me :)    I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the first strip then used dimensionals to pop up the smaller strip and match the pattern on the paper.

The Art Gallery stamped flower is actually stamped with Blushing Bride and coloured with Bermuda Bay & Real Red Stamp n' Write Markers.  I also used my Blender Pens to smoosh the colour a bit in spots - total personal preference.  The Thank You is from the Art Gallery stamp set - so many lovely messages in this set.

The twine is our Linen Thread, and I coloured it using the Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends Marker. 

The Bermuda Bay dragonfly is from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set  and punched out with the Dragonflies Punch.  

Later I decided to top the dragonfly with Wink of Stella.  This gorgeous paper is a bit difficult to photograph to get just the right amount of shimmer, without overpowering the card.  In person, the dsp just gives a depth of colour and dimension but the flower and dragonfly are the star.  Hard to know which to enter in GDP #281  Which photograph do you like better?  Please leave me a comment and I'll send you a card :)

Enjoy & have a super day!
