Leaves of Pink for #GDP061

Challenge this: pink, green and black. Hmmmm, bold colors, first reaction is to make a card with flowers. But wait! This is a challenge, so I need to get creative. (These are the crazy things that enter my mind when working on a challenge card).

This week over at Global Design Project, the task is to make a card featuring these colors:

This is what I arrived at…

I apologize if the picture is a bit dim. I will certainly need to adjust my schedule to capture the daylight for my photos! There is one instance where I am not so crazy about Daylight Savings Time, LOL. Knowing I would not make a traditional styled card, I opted for a more edgy and artsy look. I used watercolor paper for the card front and used clear heat embossing to make the leaf images from Vintage Leaves stamp set. The card base measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and the layers reduce by 1/8″.

After the leaves were watercolored, I used a reinker to add paint splatters to the card front. I wanted to give the paper a grainy look and fill in the open spaces. Finishing off the card, I added an unexpected curve to the sentiment and clear sparkly sequins.

JOIN THE SWAP!!

As Demonstrators prepare for OnStage in November, we will all be busily making “swap” cards. For those unable to go to OnStage, they do not get to experience the swap on a large scale. If you would like to participate in an “Across the Miles Swap”, please contact me to sign up. Here is how it will work: You will need to sign up to participate by November 15th. Once we close off the sign up date, I will contact you to let you know how many cards to make for swap. You will get back as many as you send in. If you want to swap one card, then sign up to send in one card. If you want to swap with all particiants, I will let you know how many to make and that’s how many you will send in and get back. This is a great way to share your work with others and to see what everyone else is doing. I do not anticipate this swap to go too big but if it does then I will break us into groups so as not to have everyone make a ton of cards. Are you ready to join the swap? You have until Nov 15th to sign up. Let’s make it together!    (open to demos and non-demos)
