Global Design Project - CASEing Shawn

22 May 2017

This week at the Global Design Project we are getting our inspiration from one of our talented Design Team Members, Shawn de Oliveira from the US. I have always loved Shawn's clean and sophisticated style. 

The definition of CASE: Copy And Share Everything
Put simply, we get our inspiration from a particular project or creation. For this challenge we can use ANY element. You might be inspired by the colours, the stamp set or the card layout.
I have always loved the large rose from the Rose Wonder stamp set and even more exciting is that this stamp set is carrying over into the new catalogue. It's a beautiful and versatile stamp set and with the coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits, I would go as far to say it should be a staple item in your stamping stash!  

I have seen many different creations made using this set and this stamp really does do all the work! I wanted to keep my card clean and simple with some easy watercolouring using the Aqua Painter and ink from the lids of Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz. To do this I used a small amount of ink and lightly coloured the entire area and left to dry. I repeated the process only focusing on the darker areas, leaving to dry after each colour and used papersnips to cut out the flower, leaving off the large leaf. I then adhere the flower using Multipurpose Glue to the top the card - leaving the edges of the rose to curl up a little, giving it that slight amount of dimension.

Now head over to the Global Design Project and see what the amazing Design Team have in store for you this week.
