Global Design Project #GDP80 Case the Designer

Scenic Sayings
Use Any Bold Stamp

Attempt two.  What does one do when an almost completed Blog Post vanishes into thin air?!  Unfortunately, the only option is to start over!!! So frustrating!!!

Today, I am sharing my card for the Global Design Project featuring the talented Artisan Team Member Louise Sharp!

Click here to see all the Designers Inspirational Projects and other entries.
Two other inspirations impacted my project this week.  They include a printed colorful canvas from a frequently visited local shop and Jennifer McGuire's Faux Dimensional Embossing Technique

Thick Whisper White Cardstock forms a vertical folding card, which I adhered a Basic Black 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 piece of cardstock to frame the Watercolor Panel.

Garden Green, Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Delightful Dijon, Island Indigo, and Mint Macaron inks offer an interesting and colorful watercolor backdrop to a sprinkling of the Metallics Sequin Assortment, which is held in place by a stitched Window Sheet.

Two fishtail banners in Island Indigo and a star strip of Basic Black cardstock sits behind the semi-transparent vellum Lots of Labels die cut tag.  The sentiment pops due to two layers of offset embossing in black and silver.  Finally, a bow in Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine completes my card. 

Thanks for stopping by!
