Grateful for You – Inspirational Sketches #gdp430

Hello everyone, Welcome to a new week. I love the colour palette of today’s card. I didn’t set out to create with this but it just turned out this way and I love the beautiful, beachy tones of this that I’ll probably be using it again.

Inspired by the sketch at Global Design Project Challenges I used the bird from the Inspirational Sketches stamp set as my main image. This stamp set is just my style and I love the artistic look of it.

This sketch is a really classic layout and the offset design lends itself to so many interpretations.


After picking my Designer Series Paper, I then chose my stamp set. The bird was inked up in Boho Blue then I wiped off the beak, feet and branches with a paper towel and added the Crumb Cake Marker to it before stamping the image. This iwas then coloured in Watercolour Pencils of Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Basic Gray.

Stampin' Up!, Inspirational Sketches stamp set, Global Design Project Challenges #gdp430, Stippled Roses Dies, Thank you Card, Poetic Expressions DSP, Card sketch, Card layout, Colouring with Watercolour Pencils

To create the offset panels, I cut a piece of Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper at 13.3 cm x 9.0 cm. I added a die cut Deckled Rectangle on top which was embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.

Banners die cut using the All That dies were embellished with some flowers die cut from the Kraft Note Cards. The natural tones of the Kraft work well against the Boho Blue. A Linen Thread bow added the perfect finishing touch.
