#GDP024 Watercolor Wings Thank You Card

Watercolor Wings Thank You Card made for the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP024

I have a love/hate thing going on with my card today, which is a Watercolor Wings Thank You card, for the Case the Designer challenge (#GDP024) over at the Global Design Project Challenge blog! The designer this week is non other than my lovely team leader Michelle Last with this stunning card!GDP024

Lovely isn’t it? I took inspiration from the Butterfly and the blue and decided to use those elements on my card.

I made my card last night and the version you are seeing is actually to super quick re-creation of the first card, that I had to make after destroying the original!!!

I had a vision of loveliness in my head when I started making the card last night, but as it progressed an epic battle ensued and the card won!! Everything that could go wrong did – most of it was recoverable…. an errant ink splat covered up with a vellum butterfly with a staple through it for example. Right until I had finished the card and set it to one side to finish off another one I was making.

ALL I did was move the finished card out of the way and bang! Game over – black ink smudge right on the edge …… which in my infinite wisdom I decided would “wash” out with an aquapainter! DUH! I then thought if I carefully removed the card front I could trim it and stick it onto another piece of Basic Black – you can see where this is going can’t you? Yep straight in the bin in about 4 pieces!! Lol!

Anyway I re-created the card quickly before going to bed in a huff (lol!). I thought I would leave off the vellum butterflies that had been covering up mistakes on the original but in the end I actually liked it better with them on, so back in they went. I also decided to splat some Wink of Stella over the card too to contrast with the water marks – oh yeah be careful as it does really go SPLAT ha ha ha (as you can see top left of the big butterfly!)

The little vellum butterflies have been covered with Wink of Stella too and they look very pretty!
