The colours this week for Global Design Project #041 are just up my alley – since I’m totally in love with Sweet Sugarplum!!!
I didn’t want to overdesign this card. The colours are a good mix between sweet & bold and it was the simple contrast I wanted to showcase.
So, it’s a Clean & Simple (CAS) creation…
Watercoloring often ends up with a slightly muted tone of the original colour, so it’s great to create contrast within the card.
This pink leaf pattern was created by stamping the Vintage Leaf onto watercolor paper 5 times in Versamark, covering with clear embossing powder, heat setting and then watercoloring in Sweet Sugarplum with my aquapainter. The clear embossing ‘resists’ the ink and leaves you with an outline & colour.
The leaves were cut using the coordinating framelit & then stuck to the Shimmery White panel. Trim the edges, add a sentiment and it’s all done.
Sometimes simple just works! Kelly x
