GDP#018 Going Global

I have been preparing cars for my catalogue launch party this weekend . The Going Global suite is so easy to use I love all the papers and the stamps. they are especially good for masculone cards, andI also have quite a few very special birthday cards to make in January so it's a good excuse to play with my new toys. By chance my last GDP entry was using these papers too. This week it's a sketch challenge which I really like.
 


I love the rustic look and was really pleased to find that the Timeless Textures set has great stamps for adding -well- texture!!! I used one of the stamps all around the edge and then only needed to sponge lightly to smooth it out.  Brilliant! I'm sure I will use this set a lot too.

and this card was for my husband for his birthday so the inside was a bit special too.


Thanks for looking, 

Liz

    1. Thankyou Brian, every time I think about selling off retired sets there is always one item in the set which I have to keep - this was the one from this set. I should be more ruthless, but that just isn't me!!! Great challenge, thankyou

  3. I really like cards that show the night sky. Great color combination! The placement of card in front of piano to emphasize the black and gold colors is a great idea too. Had you tried other backgrounds for the card before choosing the piano?

    1. Thanks so much Brent. I used to regularly use the piano for my card photos if you check back on my older work. It just has the right light and they stand up well , but you are right, it is the best backdrop for this card. I love this set and I enjoyed the sketch challenge, thankyou

  4. I am not sure which I like more - the card front or the card inside! I love it when it is stamped inside! Thank-you for playing along with the Global Design Project
