Global Design Project - Baby Elephant


Welcome to the very first Global Design Project, #GDP001. To say I am excited is an understatement! The best part is YOU can play along too....Yay!!

Each week there will be a new challenge and the Global Design Project Members are sure to wow you with their creations and keep you so inspired you will be itching to create and play along.

Our first challenge is a colour challenge and if you follow my blog you will know that colour challenges are not on my favourites list! I did enjoy this challenge though and I am quite happy with my result. A sweet baby card for my beautiful friend Angie who welcomed to the world a gorgeous baby girl this week.




I watercoloured the background with an Aqua Painter and pressed ink into the lids of Pink Pirouette and So Saffron to achieve a soft, pastel watercolored look. The balloon is from the Hey, Girl stamp set and I hope you have noticed the silver thread bow....I will just say that tying a tiny bow like that isn't for the faint-hearted! I inserted a slit in the elephant with a craft-knife and inserted piece of velum for the elephants ear.

Now head on over to the Global Design Project and see all our amazing Design Team Members and why not play along too?!

Congratulations to my beautiful friend Angie and her partner Chris on the safe arrival of baby Imogen Willow, she's simply perfect in every way.


Thanks for stopping by,
