GDP #196 – Meddling with Mosaic

***UPDATE*** I am delighted to announce that I was awarded a winner badge for my Global Design Project entry last week. It was my first ever entry to a blog challenge, let alone this one, so I am really encouraged and excited to have been chosen. Take a look at their new challenges each week and have a go yourself some time. Thank you to the judges – that has made my week!

I have taken the plunge and joined in with the Global Design Project this week. It is a ‘Case The Designer’ project, which means we were given a full design and from there we can create our own idea using select influences from that project. Perhaps the colours, layout, stamp set.

CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit

Here’s the original design by Connie Collins

And here is my interpretation and adaptation

I began with the beautiful Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is new with Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. It was not a paper that I initially warmed to, but having handled it and started to use it, I am a complete convert to it’s luxurious texture and super shine.

I fussy cut the Terracotta Tile coloured roses very easily, with little wastage. If you fancy trying your hand at some fussy cutting, then this paper is a great place to start. Have you seen the hummingbirds!?

The frame was a major feature from Connie’s design and I chose to create a fairly thick frame using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and a piece of the textured mosaic arches in Mint Macaron. Raising this frame on Dimensionals helped create depth here and allowed me to tie a nice messy bow with some of the Nature’s Twine, again in Mint Macaron.

I stamped a classic sentiment in Terracotta Tile from the Share What You Love stamp set. I then added a splatter of the same colour ink with a subtle hint of glitter from Wink of Stella and a couple of Epoxy Droplets to add a dewy effect.

If you would like to make your own version of this card, or find your own creativity with these products, then they are all available to buy at my online shop here

I absolutely loved joining in with the Global Design Project this week and look forward to my next visit.
