#GDP045 – A Pop of Pink

Wow! What a bold colour combination for this weeks challenge over at Global Design Project.  I love how beautifully these colours go together and the impact it can have on a final design!

Here is the challenge for Global Design Project # 045:


Great or what!  Here is the funny thing though…. when it said the link closes at 3pm AEDT, I didn’t check to see what timezone that was, so by the time I posted this, the link was closed LOL   Too late to add now 🙂  Oh well, I still had fun designing with these colours.

I’ve only recently begun to use the Botanical Blooms stamp set and Botanical Builders Framelits dies and felt the flowers from the Framelit set would be the perfect choice.  The flowers are arranged in a mixture of Melon Mambo and White with Basic Rhinestones added to the centres of the smaller ones.  With the largest Melon Mambo flower having a black centre already, I refrained from overdoing the embellishments on it.

I had to get some Smoky Slate on the card somewhere while keeping a balance to my design. The designer series paper from the Neutrals Paper Pack was the best option to combine with my flower arrangement.

If you look closely at the smallest Melon Mambo flowers you’ll notice they have some form to them.  I used a simple burnishing technique to achieve this.   Check out the video below for basic instructions.

You’ll have to forgive me… it has been a few years since I have made a video and this is the first time taking and editing a video on my iPhone.  It is quite simple but I’m sure I’ll get better as I use it more 🙂

When I die cut the stamped the Anniversary sentiment and die cut the frame from the Large Numbers Framelits, it looked a bit bare and plain.  I had the card completely assembled at this point and was worried I would ruin the card if I attempted to add some stitching and that it would end up looking bad, but I got lucky and I’m happy with the final result!
