Hi all,

I am pretty excited today. I thought i would have a go and play along in the FIRST EVER Global Design Project #001.  I have never played along in one of these, so I decided today was the day!

The challenge for this project is a colour challenge using smokey slate, pink pirouette and so saffron.

These are very soft, subtle colours, so I wanted to do a clean and ‘gentle’ card to match.

I used a few different stamp sets for this card – but the feature is the Sprinkles of Life Stamp set and punch.  I don’t have the Watercolour Wash background stamp yet – it’s coming in my next order – so to substitute, I coloured my large clear block with the pink pirouette stampin marker and then spritzed it with water before I used the block as my stamp. The clouds are inked in versa mark, then in smokey slate then heat embossed with our iridescent ice embossing powder.  The rain drops i punched out of vellum and used my glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter to apply a bit of sparkle.
It’s quite pretty in real life!

There are some beautiful projects over on the blog – so I encourage you to pop over and check them out – here and play along 🙂

Happy stamping everyone!
