This week, the Global Design Project challenge has a sketch challenge. The idea is to create a card design that is inspired by this week’s sketch and use it in a card project. To view the projects for this challenge, please visit the Global Design Project page by clicking here
To create this Easter card, I used Helping Me Grow stamp set. This is a large stamp set, with many images to chose from in making a Spring card. I chose the floral image of hyacinths, as I really like their lovely fragrance 🙂 The sentiment is from Suite Sayings stamp set. I did a bit of “isolation inking” to get two words that were not placed together, to stamp one at a time. I find that a sticky note will help get this accomplished perfectly.
To meet the specifics of the challenge, I created a stamped panel with a tone on tone look in Sahara Sand. An unstamped panel sits directly on top of this but to the bottom, that will allow somewhere for the eye to rest. I like to make sure there is at least one place in my designs to rest the eye and allow the remainder of the design to get the attention it needs. To break up the muted tones, I used a thin strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper that has sparkly bits of purple, green, pink and more. My favorite aspect of this sparkle paper is it picks up any colors it is paired with.
Measurements for this project are:
Thick Whisper White card stock for card base: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Sahara Sand card stick layer: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
Perfect Plum card stock layer: 1 1/2″ x 5 3/8″
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper strip: 1/4″ x 5 3/8″
Scraps of Whisper White, Perfect Plum & Dazz Diamonds Glimmer paper for die cuts
