Global Design Project #GDP018…..Is in the Air……

Time again for a Global Design Project….

and this week it’s another fantastic sketch made by Teneale Williams!

GDP018When I first started out in stampin’ Up! I played around with colour on the “Clear Blocks” and using that as a stamp.

It gives you a “Water colour Background”,I love the different effects you can get.

So I decided for this layout that’s what I would do.

To get this effect you do have to work quickly so have every thing ready…

  • Card stock, in this case Shimmery White, it will give that little bit of extra sparkle and will handle the water used.
  • Spritzer bottle filled with water
  • Stampin’ Write Markers, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Watermellon Wonder..(don’t you love the colour names…I do)

Using the Stampin’ Write markers I coloured in the block starting with the lighter colour at the top

and working down to a darker colour at the bottom.

Then a light spray with the Spritzer onto the block and stamp down onto card stock. I held it there for approx 2 minutes, just to let the colour spread.

Carefully lift the block, you may have a pooling of ink just blot any excess ink with paper towel or tissue.

When dry stamp your image on top…here I embossed the floral heart from “Bloomin’ Love” and embossed with white embossing powder.

Triple mounted…added some pearls and a sentiment just under frames.

Give it ago…would love to hear how you went with this great technique.

Keep on Stampin’ Up!

  1. What beautiful texture you achieved with this technique. Such a beautiful card! Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge!

  2. I love this technique Michele and I love that you’ve gone with a monochromatic ombre look. It’s so effective yet doesn’t take anything away from that beautigul heart stamp! Thanks for joining the Global Design Project again this week!
