Just Add ink#325 the places You'll go with GDP#049 colours

Well once I got started I had to complete more than one card!

this stamp set is not new, but new to my collection. I love the delicate wreath and stamped it onto some shimmery white which had a yellow watercolour wash. I did use the colour challenge from Global Design Project #049 but my photos don't really do the colours justice.

I love the marbled watercolour paper that was part of the Sale-a-bration promo earlier this year, and while it is difficult for me to cut into it I took the plunge !!  The daffodil strip across the centre is some cotton paper scrunched up, and since I didn't have any pear pizazz twine I took a single strand from the White jute ribbon and ran it over the pear stamp pad. You have to let it dry befor trying to work with it but it doesn't take long.  The perfect white accents have had their white backing paper removed so they take on the colour of the background panel. My looping pear thread needed some anchors to hold it in place as glue dots were just too big- so bling seemed essential - doesn't it always?

thanks for looking today,
Liz
