One of my lovely team members alerted me to this weeks Global Design Project Challenge.  It has been a while since I have participated in a GDP, but when she let me know what it was, I had to have a go!

This GDP challenge is a colour challenge – of sweet sugarplum, whisper white and night of navy! What a challenge!!!!  I love these type of challenges because they really get you thinking. As I mulled over the colours in my head a picture started forming of the card I wanted to create.  I love using the rose garden thinlets and have been wanting to create a silhouette from the petals for a while now – so I thought this challenge would be perfect for that!  So here’s what I came up with –

my paper oasis, timeless textures, rose garden thinlets, stampin up, handmade card, floral card

I created a soft background using the timeless textures stamp set, and stamped off my images before stamping onto the whisper white. I then adhered the rose by making sure that all the pieces were cut through properly, I placed a dot or two of tombow on the back of each petal piece and placed the thinlet directly onto the card, before gently rubbing each individual petal to attach it to the card.  By gently lifting off the thinlet, all the petal pieces remained in position. Easy!!! And very effective if I do say so myself! 😉  I also applied clear wink of stella over the rose petals, but its a bit hard to tell in the pic!

If you are in a bit of a slump, or even if you’re not – I really encourage you to participate in a few challenges to kickstart your engine! You can see all the GDP entries here.

Happy crafting
