Enjoy the Little Things…Global Design Project 070 | Sketch Challenge

“Enjoy the Little Things”….

How often do we forget to “Enjoy the Little Things”,

we spend so much time worrying about all the different things that life throws at us that we forget to “Enjoy the Little Things”.

This week, Global Design Project has challenged us with a Sketch Challenge.

GDP070Funny things is …I started my card the day before the challenge came out.


Last week I did a water colour card using these same colours.

Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise and Peekaboo Peach.

This was a fun card to do and a simple card to do but I think very effective.

With this card I masked off the bottom section of the card and then sponged the colour blending them one into another.

A Bokeh effect was created by adding drops of water onto the sponged area and letting it dry, the water moving the colour to form lighter areas.

The sentiment was stamped with Basic Black – Archival Ink, this will with stand any water and not bleed. Splatters of ink was added with the same 6 colours used in the sponging.

This was done by watering the ink down with an Aqua Painter and tapping the Aqua Painter against another bush to form the splatters across the card front.

Just take care when doing this as the splatters will go everywhere and I mean everywhere.
