Watercolor Wings Global Design Project Challenge Card (#GDP009)

Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up! – clean and simple card idea for Global Design Project Challenge Card (#GDP009)

As both the Bedlam Brothers (aka my two pesky sons) are now at school full time, I promised myself that I would enter more blog challenges. This is in itself a challenge! I used to be a very organised, efficient individual. And then I had children!!!! Enough said!!! 🙂

Ha ha, I love them dearly of course, but since having the boys, I seemed to have acquired permanent baby brain and become completely disorganised. The upshot being that I haven’t managed as many challenges as I would like. I’m making some progress though and managed a couple of challenge entries last week. This week I’m playing along with the Global Design Challenge Blog – #GDP009, whose challenge is a colour scheme – Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. I did groan at first and thought I would end up skipping this one on purpose. I am “challenged” immensely by colour combinations. My instant reaction is, that I have to cover the whole card with the colours, which I struggle with doing without ending up with a card that looks like the dog’s dinner.  I prefer clean and simple (as in easier) cards to make! Then I remembered the sketch challenge from last week, that I had managed to enter this card in to.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings clean and simple card idea Tracy May #GDP009

To me the sketch fit the bill perfectly, allowing me to use all 3 colours, but in a way I could cope with! Lol! 🙂

What do you think? I stamped off the Gorgeous Grunge and Work of Art images once before stamping on to the card front. My ink pads are so juicy still, as I’ve not used these colours much, that I had to stamp the butterfly off 3 times for the background, before adding the second stamp for the wing tips. I also highlighted the wing tips with Dazzling Details, which unfortunately doesn’t show up too well in the picture.

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you like my project. Before you go, why don’t you take a look at this week’s deals.
