Good Morning Everyone

I haven't been around for a few days, life somehow took over. I have been playing catch up since being poorly and various other matters had to be attended to.

So, how have you all been...? Good I hope. The weather in UK seems to have taken a turn and it is back to umbrellas again. Hey Ho. At least the garden has had some much needed water.

Today I am bringing you my entry for the Global Design Project #093 and this week it is a colour challenge.

Here is the banner :

And here is my entry

I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stampset to stamp the sentiment in Berry Burst and then using the lots of labels framelits I cut it out in Whisper White. I then cut another label the next size up in Berry Burst.
I stamped and cut the balloons from the set, two I stamped in Pool Party ink on Pool Party CS, (this is called tone on tone, the other I stamped tone on tone in Lemon Lime Twist. Using the co-ordinating Balloon Bouquet punch I cropped out the 3 balloons and I then handcut the slivers of cardstock to make the ties for them.

Using the speckled pattern of one of the balloon stamps I third generation stamped all over the label with the sentiment on in Pool Party. What do I mean by 3rd generation.....? Well I ink up the stamp and then stamp it off twice onto a piece of scrap paper then stamp on the project.
Using the same stamp, I third generation stamped all over a white panel in Lemon Lime Twist, this is such a fabulous new In Colour. I totally love it.

Finally, I tone on tone stamped with the same stamp on the Lemon Lime twist panel, which I then matted onto the Pool Party panel.

I assembled the card by matting the large Whisper White panel onto a Berry Burst Cardbase. I glued the Lemon Lime Twist panel to the Pool Party panel and stuck this across the WW panel. I glued the WW label to the Berry Burst Label and using dimensionals I fixed this to the cardfront.

Using glue dots I fixed the balloon ties to the back of each balloon and arranged them at the top of the label using dimensionals.

For I final touch I popped on some of the new glitter enamel dots in Berry Burst.

There we have it our card is finished.

Sizes for Cardstock

Cut a piece of Berry Burst CS (European A4) down the middle, and score @ 5 7/8". This gives us a cardbase of 4 1/8" x 5 7/8".
WW Panel is 4" x 5 6/8"
Pool Party panel is 2" x 4"
Lemon Lime Twist Panel is 1 3/4" x 4"
