Global Design Project - Food, Glorious Food!

#GDP051
It's Monday evening (in Oz) which means it's time for another Global Design Project challenge. This week we have a theme challenge - which is sure to make your taste buds tingle!

Sneak Peek Alert - again!
The ice blocks are from a new stamp set called Day at the Beach in the upcoming 2016 Holiday Catalogue which is available to customers to purchase from on the 1st September.

This card reminds me of sweet Summer days by the beach eating lemonade icy-poles. Yum!

I know you have seen this technique of white embossing and watercoloring from me more than a couple of time recently, but I love it and it's so fun to sit and colour!

Watercoloring Tips:
  • I stamp the image onto Shimmer Paper as I find this really nice for watercoloring. 
  • Use a wet Aqua Painter and pick up the ink from the lids of the ink pads and use a tissue to wipe off when using another colour. 
  • For a more saturated colour, wait to dry before adding more colour in certain areas.
The sentiment stamp is from Mixed Borders on page 123. The two-toned washed look was achieved using the using the baby-wipe technique. Fold a couple of baby wipes in half or quarters and use ink refills to ink baby wipes and use this as a makeshift ink pad. I used Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie ink refills.

Now to head on over the Global Design Project and get your senses ready for some tasty treats this week!

Thanks for stopping by,

  2. GASP! I did not know this stamp set was coming out! What else is in the set?

    Your card is amazing and makes me want to eat popsicles and make cards at the same time, which is probably a terrible idea. :P
