Global Design Project 148 | CASE the Designer Connie Collins

Hi there stamping friends! Welcome to my little part of the world wide web. Sharing what I love and loving what I share.

I'm playing along with the Global Design Project 148 | CASE the Designer - Connie Collins. Connie is on this years Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team and she makes totally amazing cards! Apart from making amazing cards she is amazing at using many different colouring mediums to colour her images on her creations. I'm always blown away seeing one of her colouring creations!! They are always WOW!!

I was really drawn to the DSP that Connie used, the circle elements on her card, the sponging of the edges, pretty much the whole card. Ha! It is stunning!!

My whole card was going to be a complete different look. I started to use a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper  as a sponging template to sponge Crumb Cake Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock for a tone on tone look but it wasn't coming out the way that I wanted so that idea was scrapped and I then used the Crumb Cake DSP layer instead and then layered a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, Vanilla side, over the DSP.

I'm a huge lover of layering on my cards and that's what I've got here again today. Most of the items used on this card today come from the Share What You Love Suite in the 2018 - 2019 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue and the cardstock and ink colourings co-ordinate with this suite as well.

I really enjoyed sponging the edges of the DSP and circle layers. I used to do it quite often and haven't for quite some time. I was just drawn to the sponged edges in Connie's card and just love that extra 'something, something' that the sponging gives.

I stamped the flower from the Love What You Do stamp set and, as I've done a few times before, using an aqua painter, pulled the colour around in the flower before the ink dries.  The card is then finished off the the Silver flower and the Tranquil Tide Baker's Twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit and some of the gorgeous pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.
