Welcome to my blog today … I am again participating in the Global Design Project challenge. This week it is a sketch challenge. Anyone can enter as long as you can upload your project into the gallery. Click on the graphic below and take a look at this week’s gallery for many different takes on the one sketch.
Not your average Lily!
My first impressions of the Lasting Lily Sale-A-Bration set …. hmmm …. a two step floral set. I LOVE florals … you may have guessed that! 🙂 But this set didn’t make my fingers itch to get it inky and so it has been sitting on the shelf. I pulled it out this week because someone asked what it was like to stamp with. Oh my!!
I created this one specifically to suit the GDP Sketch challenge, with a vertical orientation instead of horizontal. I love having a sketch to follow! It takes one design element out of the mix and lets you concentrate on other aspects of the card, such as colours.
For this lily, I used Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. Using the Stamparatus allows colours to be layered and layered, creating real depth and dimension. Use sponge daubers to add colour in specific areas. I think this is my favourite Stamparatus technique.
Quick design tips …
- Create dramatic contrast with black sponging through a stencil as a background. Because it is just a strip, it doesn’t overwhelm the focal point.
- A splatter of Wink of Stella (or watered down shimmer paint) gives a subtle hint of shine.
- Placing one image behind a panel of vellum makes that large focal lily really pop.
- A white embossed greeting on black card echos the black ink sponging in the background.
With many steps to this card, it is definitely one for the avid crafter.
I had such fun …I just wanted to keep stamping lilies in all different colours, so I used it for my VIP group creative live, using elements from my GDP card, but a totally different colourway.
I have yellow/lime green lilies in my back yard so used them as inspiration for this colourway. Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight. The card is much softer generally with Crumb Cake sponging on the Crumb Cake base. With less steps, but still a little technique involved, this card is suitable for the casual crafter.
