Global Design Project #089

The Challenge for this weeks Global Design Project is a Color Challenge.  I took one of the Designers cards and used what I had in my stash and changed things up just a bit to create what I like to call a card for any occasions, because I have a hard time creating Wedding, Anniversary, and Graduation cards.

Would you like to play along with this Challenge CLICK HERE.

 I used a My Favorite Things die set called Sweet Rose.

I am using the colors in the challenge Calypso Coral and Old Olive for the card stock.
 The matching stamp set and cordinating ink.
 I am making four cards at once because this layout would be a great sketch challenge as well.
 I do not believe Hampton Art is making the Stamp Perfect tool anymore but I am very glad I snagged it up when I did.

Using Versa Fine Black Onyx ink and a Hampton Art Stamp set, sorry there really is no name on these sets that I picked up at Micheal's and Hobby Lobby.
 On the second stamping I added a layer of clear embossing powder.

The white card stock heavy weight panel is 3 1/2 by 4 3/4.
 I decided I wanted anouther layer of clear embossing powder so I left my stamp where it was and cleaned it off.

 This time I used Versa Mark embossing ink to stamp on top and then added the second layer of clear embossing powder.

Look at that nice thick shine.

 Because it warped just a bit I used Tombow Mono Liquid glue in a thin layer all along the white panel and added it to a heavy weight black panel that is 1/8 inch larger on each side.
 Again using a small amount of Tombow Mono Liquid glue to adhere the leaves to the flowers.
 I added foam dots to the back of the big flower mainly towards the center.

I did over lap the one dot to make sure it was over the leaf and flower.
Here is one of the designs.

I will make two cards with this design.
 I added the smaller flowers with foam as well like the big flower.

I put the foam near the edges so I could over lap the larger flower.
 The second design I have the foam like the larger flower.

In the center.
 This is the second design.

I decided to go with two designs because some of the flowers I did not stamp well and this covers my oops stamping.
 I am using the same card stock as bases, two in each color.

I decided it needed something suttle on the background.

I used Versa Fine ink which can also give a water like look or tone on tone look and a My Favorite things Linen background stamp.
