This week’s Global Design Project challenge inspiration project is so beautiful. The challenge is to CASE the Designer. That means to copy bits or pieces, colors perhaps or design sketch, maybe stamp set, whatever. I thought a lot about what I wanted to do for this challenge. While I changed a few things, I changed it to a square but generally, I kept the idea of a sentiment surrounded by flowers. I used some flowers from  the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Design Notes for Oh So Eclectic Card:

Not sure why I went with the square idea except that I don’t make square cards very often. It was time. I first stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink. The sentiment, by the way, is from the Petal Palette stamp set. Because I wanted to stamp both on the Whisper White piece and the Mint Macaron piece with one image (the leaf), I cut an opening in the Mint Macaron piece and fit the Whisper White piece inside so I had just one level. That way, I knew the stamping would be complete. The flowers were done in two steps with the lighter ink, Highland Heather for the more solid, background image and then the Gorgeous Grape for the detailed image. Easy to cut out with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

I cut a few extra leaves out and added them around the sentiment. The last step was to add a few layers of Wink of Stella on each of the flowers.
