Sitting Here for #GDP056

Hi Crafters!

Today I'm playing along with the Global Design Project #GDP056 Case the Designer challenge with Bibi Cameron!! Oh I love Bibi's work! I hope you like what I've come up with!

This is an anniversary card for my Mother in Law from my Father in Law & they have a little swing in their backyard, so I thought it was just perfect to make for him to give to her! And I haven't used this stamp set yet... I got it as one of the freebies from OnStage in April earlier this year. It's been sitting on my shelf asking me to use it, I kept taking it down & looking at it, but I wasn't sure what to do with it!  

I have started with an Island Indigo cardstock base, layered with Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (DSP) & Shimmery White cardstock, which I have heat embossed White & watercoloured. I have stamped everything onto the Shimmery White cardstock with Versamark, after rubbing over with the Embossing Buddy, then dusted with White Emboss Powder & set with the Heat Tool. I have stamped the cat & cushions using the same process on a separate piece of Shimmery White cardstock & then fussy cut them out, so I could layer them up on the seat.

I used my new Stampin' Write Markers & I am in LOVE!! I got the Many Marvelous Markers set, but you can also get them in separately, in the four colour ranges & the two InColour ranges come separately as well. I coloured onto the Clear Blocks & then used my Aqua Painter to pick up the colours, wiping it off on a piece of tissue in between colours. I was much happier with this card before I did the sky lol I think I should have left it white in the background, but it still is great for a first time watercolour scene! I'm trying new things all the time, thanks to great challenges like GDP that make you think outside your comfort zone! :)

I have stamped the inside of the card & envelope to match. I hope this card makes my MIL smile, it seems like something my FIL would say to her xx

  1. Lovely soft colouring you have used here Jessie.

  2. What a perfect Anniversary card for your In-laws if they have a swing so similar. It becomes even more personal! Beautiful card Jesie. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project as we CASE Bibi this week.
