Global Design Project #040 | Jars of Watercolour

Hello! I cannot believe it has been weeks since I joined in over at the Global Design Project! I have missed it, this weeks challenge is to CASE the Designer. This type of challenge always makes me a little nervous as the girls and guys over at GDP are so super talented, but I’m giving it a go

GDP 040 - Case the Designer

I love the stamp set Shawn De Oliveira has used on this card, and I almost used it as well. But I was totally drawn to the layout of this card, with the offset panel. So I thought I would use that instead.

Thank You watercolour Card featuring Jar of Love from Stampin' Up! Uk

Jar of Love was one of the stamp sets I knew I HAD to have when I first looked at the catalogue, those jars are just so adorable! I was actually making a different card when this one sort of appeared as if from no-where (I’ll be sharing the other card here on Saturday!)

That watercolour background was so easy to create; add ink to a large acrylic block and use an Aqua Painter to pick up the colour, and wash it onto the Watercolour Paper. I repeated it several times to get an intense wash of Flirty Flamingo.

I cant get enough of that pretty side panel either, stamped on Pool Party ink onto Pool Party card stock for a great tone on tone effect – similar to what Shawn had done with his card too!

I couldn’t use Jar of Love without using a jar could I?! so this one is stamped in Smoky Slate, with Pool Party ‘water’ and a bow of Flirty Flamingo. That ‘Thanks’ is in the same stamp set, is stamped in Smoky Slate too.

Thanks for checking out my blog today, hope you have a great day
