Talk about leaving things to the last minute…..today is the last day for this challenge. Luckily I knew what I wanted to achieve…
something simple and elegant.
I knew what stamp set I wanted to use but some of the components I needed I didn’t have.
Its amazing sometimes what you can come up with if time is running out…LOL, but its not something I recommend doing, can also be a bit stressful.
Welcome to the Global Design Project #GDP069 – Colour Challenge
The stamp set I’m using is called “Beautiful You” by Stampin’ Up! and it is found in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
If you don’t have a copy and you live in Australia let me know and I will get one to you ASAP.
This set is becoming a favorite for many but as soon as I saw it I loved it and for many reasons.
- Its beautiful
- quotes are awesome and could be used on so many different cards
This list could go on and on……but for me one stamp meant more than to me than the others. It reminded me of a drawing I have and love.
It was done by Grandmother and it was done when my father would have been a child.
“The cloche hat or simply cloche is a fitted, bell-shaped hat for women that was invented in 1908 by milliner Caroline Reboux,
especially became popular from about 1922 to 1933. Its name is derived from cloche, the French word for “bell”.” – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloche_hat
A more in depth history on this hat can be found here – https://startupfashion.com/fashion-archives-history-cloche-hat/
So of course I card is of the elegant lady wearing a Closhe….“life looks beautiful on you” or on her!
The colours for this challenge are Delightful Dijon, Silver and one other of your choice. I just went with “Black” as I wanted to keep this looking very elegant, slightly formal and simple.
This stamp is a simple “outline” stamp with another stamp that gives you a stylized wash for the dress.
I have added a layer on the black of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate using the silver side (gold on other side).
Very simple and easy to do, a stamp set I real recommending you getting..
