Picture Perfect Swirl - GDP37 Color Challenge



Hello! So excited to play once again over at Global Design Project and so thrilled to have been chosen as one of the top three winners in last week's challenge - Case the Designer Paula Dobson. It's such an honor to have been chosen especially Case'ing Paula's fabulous card. Click here to see the post. :) 

This week's Global Design Project is an exciting color challenge and I have played with a few sets to incorporate the three colours above. The card I have made uses two sets: Picture Perfect and the new Swirly Scribbles thinlits dies. I just love the hummingbird in Picture Perfect and it's my first time to use it. The hummingbird and the colors in the challenge worked perfectly together as it's a three step stamping and each colour was used to build the image. The sentiment has been stamped in Tip Top Taupe and is from the set as well. 









I have used the Swirly Bird thinlits die as a decorative design feature on the card and to showcase this new thinlits die from the new catalogue. This set is part of a Swirly bird bundle and will be available on June 1, 2016. I just love the organic shapes in this set and has so many uses and this wavy design works well to incorporate the color challenge. I have used Island Indigo and Mint Macaron cardstock for this. The whole front panel has been mounted on fun foam for an even raise. I decided to go with Island Indigo for the base card as this really ties in the whole color palette and picks up on the Island Indigo die cut wavy line from Swirly scribbles. The wavy lines have been repeated on the inside of the card however it's arranged differently color wise for a subtle change and to show that the set looks great however way you arrange them. :)

This card has been kept rather simple and a clear wink of Stella on the hummingbird for some sparkle. I hope you have enjoyed my card project and have been inspired to try out these color combination. For more inspiration check out the creative entries over at Global Design Project. Hopefully you can join in the fun too. :)
