Oh So Ombre – #GDP274 Challenge

In Global Design Project by Emma Goddard4 Comments

Happy Monday! Today the Global Design Project are being inspired by this sketch. 

If you are ever stuck for some inspiration for your projects and cards, challenges are such a great place to start with a spark of colour, theme or layout to get you started. We’d love you to share your creation too! You can do this by using the hashtag #GDP274 or share a link to your card on the Global Design Project Blog. 

As soon as I saw this sketch, I immediately reached for the new Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper. This Ombre 6″ x 6″ paper can be added to your shopping basket for FREE with a spend of £45, between now and the 28th Feb 2021.

I have paired this up with the Flowering Cactus Product Medley, which is just so much fun too use. These images have been dies cut from the paper in this medley and the felt embellishments are included too.

I have added a touch of the Gilded Leafing on to the edges of a few of the cactus.

The darker green cactus is die cut from some Mossy Meadow cardstock and I have added some of the same colour ink with the blending brush. As you can see in this close up photo, I have also added some Gilded Leafing to this die cut piece too.

The Happy Birthday is from the Pretty Perennials Stamp Set, and I have also stamped this in Mossy Meadow and cut out with my paper snips.

The Flowering Cactus Product Medley is jammed packed with gorgeous papers, felt embellishments and the coordinating twine. It also includes the stamp set and coordinating dies!
