Sarah Berry Stampin’ Up! UK Independent Demonstrator | Global Design Project – Case the Designer #GDP130

Hello everyone! How are you doing? Today I have taken part in today’s Global Design Project sketch challenge, the designers have made some beautiful cards, yet again! I encourage you to pop over and take a look at them all, perhaps even take part in this challenge yourself? If you’d like to submit your entry you will need to have loaded your image to a post on your own blog.

Today I’m using the beautiful Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is available until the end of this month only. It’s a bundle which you can earn as a free gift, with a £90 spend.  I’ve stamped the basket here in Memento Black ink onto the Shimmery White card. You won’t see that it’s shimmery white card from this photo below, but I’ve found colouring with my alcohol marker pens, the Stampin’ Up! Blends pens to work really well on here, the card stock handles the ink really well and doesn’t let it bleed out much.

The colours of Blends I’ve used today are; Bronze, Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Crumb Cake. I’ve highlighted the petals with the light and dark Calypso Coral pens and added light and dark Old Olive to the leaves. A top tip for colouring the basket would be to colour it all over in Crumb Cake light, then go back in with the dark Crumb Cake to highlight the individual sections of the basket weave. The Brown pen helps to give a bit of dark shading.

To finish off the card I’ve added a double bow using the Ombre Calypso Coral ribbon with the sheer. A simple glue dot holds it in place.
