Hello and welcome. Today we are being highlighted internationally by the lovely Kylie Bertucci. This blog hop is the Top Ten winners from last month's Travel theme blog hop and feel so fortunate to be taking part. There is no theme for this hop and just showcasing any a current Stampin' Up! product. I was stumped at first as it was so open and kind of spoilt for choice but have taken inspiration from The Global Design Project #73 - Colour Challenge. Another wonderful event that the wonderful Kylie organises. She is just so amazing to do all this for us.
The bold and bright colours led me to use the Custom Tee bundle from the Occasions catalogue on page 30. The shirts in the set was a great way to play and experiment with the colours. I have also used a coordinating stamp set called 'Designer Tee" from Sale-A-bration that you can earn for FREE with a purchase of $90. It's the perfect accompaniment to create a designer tee stylistically in the end hehe.
Here are the colours: Daffodil Delight, Emerald Envy and Watermelon Wonder.
Be sure to check out the gallery of amazing card entries for more inspiration and take part in the fun. Global Design Project #GDP073 - Colour Challenge.
I have done a fun watercolour wash background with the ink refills and the large tip aqua painter brush on Arches smooth watercolour paper. Each application has been built up by heat setting it first with a heat tool so that the colours don't get too muddy. It has then been mount on Basic Black cardstock and helps make the colours all stand out.
The custom tee has been die cut on whisper white card stock using the stitched shapes framelits. To achieve the rectangle, the square stitched shape framelit has been partially die cut twice and extend to get the rectangle shape. This negative framing in white helps break up the busy background and allows space for the eye to rest. The whole panel has been mounted on black fun foam to give it an even raise and die cut in the same position so it all lines up and leave a nice black edge around the shirt.
The Custom Tee bundle along with the Designer Tee set is just fabulous together and allows you to make many cards for different occasions and dress it up in any style that takes your fancy or the recipient in mind.
I hope you have enjoyed the card and found inspiration, I would love to hear your thoughts.
Thank you for visiting and hope to see you next time. Happy Crafting! :)
