Global Design Project 145 | #GDP145 | Colour Challenge

Hi there stamping friends! Thanks for stopping here at my blog. Today I'm playing along with the colour challenge over at the Global Design Project 145 | #GDP145. I'm actually 'killing two birds with one stone' so as to say by entering the GDP challenge by making some tags for some team appreciation gifts.

I love playing along at GDP and I really put this challenge to myself to use this weeks challenge colours as I'm not really an orange or purples person but more of pinks and aquas. So these colours really get me out of my comfort zone.


I only just received this bundle the other day and really wanted to use it straight away! Why let new products sit untouched? I was really drawn to this super pretty bundle with my first look at the 2018 - 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It just screams my style - pretty, delicate, intricate and all things gorgeous!  

 I die cut the tag out of the stunning marble look DSP from the Petal Promenade DSP. I didn't want a plain Whisper White tag and this soft marble look is perfect with the intricate die cut to not be too busy!


The leaf image I stamped with Sahara Sand ink and then accented the tag with Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Grapefruit Grove 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Mint Macaron Leaf Die Cut and the 'For You stamped in Grapefruit Grove. I stamped the bird with Fresh Fig Classic Ink on Fresh Fig Cardstock and then poured over Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder for some added interest. I didn't like the way the Clear Embossing Powder bubbled up at first but then looking at it I like the way that it gives the bird some texture. I'm all about layers and texture and this 'mistake' just adds to that look that I love.

To finish off the tag I layered the die cut tag over a piece of Grapefruit Grove DSP from the In Color 6"x6" Paper Stack. I'm a huge sucker for stripes and I love the contrast of the bright striped background with the some marble DSP.

Go an check out how the Global Design Project Design Team used this gorgeous colour combo! There is lots to love there, that's for sure!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
