Swirly Bear Hugs - Global Design Project 37 - Color Challenge







Hello and welcome back! I'm so totally inspired yet again from this week's Global Design Project #37 Color Challenge, that I have made another card. :) I just couldn't stop playing with the new Swirly Scribbles thinlits dies and have teamed it up with Bear Hugs set to create a theme using the colour challenge and complimenting the sentiment. 

This is a top folding A2 card with many layers to show the colour combination from the challenge and the front panel has a window sheet to create an added interest with the layers. The Swirly Scribbles wavy die cut helped created the layers in a tiered format, repetitively following the shape of the waves almost like a template and incorporating the negative space in the layout. The window sheet helped create a window effect to reveal the wavy lines die cut inside once again.








I have taken the wavy lines from Swirly Scribbles in Island Indigo cardstock to become the waves of a lake or river and this became the place for the die cut fishes from the Bear Hugs to swim in. The Bear and fishes have been stamped in Tip Top Taupe ink and die cut using the coordinating dies from the Bear Hugs bundle. I have added Island Indigo to the fishes using an aqua painter for a subtle watercolor wash. I have then added clear wink of Stella on the fishes for shimmer. I have used fun foam to mount the bear and this gives a nice finish as you can see the even raised white padding underneath blending in with the base cardstock. Behind the bear I have die cut the swirl from Swirly Scribbles dies in Sahara Sand as a neutral colour.





The sentiment has been white heat embossed on Island Indigo cardstock and I have used the banner from Number of Years thinlits dies to die cut the banner shape and have been mounted using Stampin' dimensionals. Inside of the card reveals the wavy die cut with the fishes. I have also used another die cut of the wavy lines to cover up the back panel of the card to give it a nice finish. I hope you have enjoyed my second card inspiration using the color challenge. The Bear bundle is such a cute set and teaming it with Swirly Scribbles adds more fun and allows you to add a creative dimension to the set. The Bear bundle is only available as a bundle till the end of this month, so be sure to get it before the special offer ends to get a 15% saving. From June 1st it's only available separately. The Swirly Scribbles is part of the Swirly Bird bundle and is available on June 1st and save 10% saving when purchased together. 

Please head on over to Global Design Project for more creative inspirations using these colours. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope to see you again soon. Cheers! :)
