This weeks Challenge from Global Design Project is a colour challenge set by Brian King…..
Love the colours he has chosen but I don’t think I have used them together before.
On today’s card I decided to do a water colour wash for the back ground with the three colours.
Starting with the Wisteria Wonder,
next Bermuda Bay and lastly Melon Mambo. I did them in this order because I found through trial and
error that the Melon Mambo was too strong and can be over powering if used too heavily. So by starting with the lighter colour and then adding the stronger colours,
I had more control and could see where I needed to add more.
The ribbon is a piece of Seam Binding Ribbon in Crumb Cake (discontinued colour) and as it wasn’t in the colours I wanted I dyed it using the Ink from the ink pads. Its a messy technique but can be fun to do.
You may have to come to one of my classes to learn a bit more about how I did it.
The beautiful rose came from the NEW Rose Garden Thinlits Die which I cut out in the Wisteria Wonder
A simple tag from cut from Very Vanilla and with the “Thank You” sentiment from “Rose Wonder” stamped in Melon Mambo ink. Tied on with Gold Metallic Thread.
The Rose Garden Thinlits and Rose Wonder stamps are from the Occasional Catalog and can be purchased as a bundle.
