Global Design Project #GDP020 - CASE-ing Connie Collins

With my kids back to school after a 7 week break, I've finally got some time to myself to have some 'me' crafting time. Not crafting because I have to but just to have a play and use some new products. My happy place! Uninterrupted crafting time! I've cruised a few of the card challenge blogs and the Global Design Project #GDP020 challenge for this week jumped right out at me and I had to have a go.

This weeks challenge we are CASE-ing (Copy And Selectively Edit) the super talented Connie Collins and taking whatever inspires us from her card.
I was loving the black stripes and the gold hearts on her card so that is where I started and my card then evolved from there. I've used the new and possibly my new favourite stamp set, (I think my favourite changes from week to week. HA! I do love them all though!) Picture Perfect.

This is such a gorgeous stamp set that involves layering two,three or even four images to make one beautiful image. Lots of step stamping.


One the best things about this stamp set is that you only have to use one colour for each beautiful image. It just involves some 'stamping off' of ink to get the gradients in colour. I started with the smallest image full strength ink, the second image stamped off once and then the third image stamped off twice. And because this stamp set is photopolymer its so easy to line up the images and get them layered.


I've used Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay for the flowers and then for the leaves I used Old Olive. I really love how the flowers turned out and really can't wait to have a play with the other images that came in the set.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. What a stunner Rochelle! I love that you only used a thin panel of stripes rather than the whole background, as Connie did. I don't have that stamp set, but I think I am going to cave now I can feel your excitement about it, lol. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us this week!
