Color Theory Words - #GDP089

Hello everyone 😊
Welcome back to my blog...

#KOCreationscards #colortheory #lovelywordsthinlits #colorfulseasons #GDP089 #stampinup #watercolourwash

I was just perusing through this weeks Global Design Project entries (in my jammies mind you) and having a look at all of the gorgeous designs when I suddenly realised this weeks challenge finishes today AND I hadn't entered!!!
That made me get moving that's for sure.
SO....I hastily showered and got cracking in my craft studio.

Here is the colour challenge they are using this week.

Hmmm what was I to create..I have so many gorgeous new stamp sets and dies to choose from...
Ahhh, an idea was beginning to form. 
I grabbed my 'Color Theory' DSP and the 'Colourful Seasons' dies plus the 'Lovely Words' thinlits
I then spent 10 minutes just looking at them and planning how I was going to put them together.

This is what I came up with.

  1. Cut a sheet Basic Black card stock to size,
  2.  A4 folded in half then trimmed at 10.5 cm
  3. Trim a piece of 'Old Olive' 'Colour Theory' DSP down to size so you have a 2mm edge. 
  4. Cut the 'Lovely Word' from the 'Old Olive' DSP.
  5. Using a spritzer and an aqua painter water colour wash with 'Calypso Coral' on a whisper white piece of card stock. To get the swiped effect don't use too much water! 
  6. Heat Dry.
  7. Die cut the large (normal) Sweet and Sassy heart from it and the flowers from the Colorful Seasons thinlits.
  8. Using basic black cut another Lovely Word and the branch from the Colorful Seasons.
  9. I added 3 glitter enamel dots just for a little extra interest.
  10. Clear Wink of Stella was aded to the cherry blossoms.
  11. Glue all pieces in place with multi purpose glue (TomBow) then adhere the front to the Basic Black card base.

For the inside I stamped the small branch and flowers in Calypso Coral onto whisper white. I backed this with a sheet of Old Olive Color Theory DSP with TomBow glue. I then adhered this to the inside with Tear and Tape.

  1. Another beautiful project Kim. You make using DSP look so easy which I still struggle with. And I love the marks you created from the Calypso Coral wash on the heart and flowers.

    1. Thank you Jay, it has been done on thick whipser white and I didn't use alot of water.
