Today’s wonderful card in shades of green is my entry for the Global Design Project #GDP044. This is “Case The Designer” week and the challenge allows for a pretty liberal interpretation of that. What I wanted was a watercolor look without having to watercolor. The Blooms & Bliss DSP gives a lot of great choices for a watercolor background. I also used the paper to create a layer of the butterfly as well. I chose the shades of green papers #1 because I love green and #2 because I love the Mint Macaron and Island Indigo together. In this paper they create the look of Malachite. So, this is my interpretation of this weeks #GDP044 “Case the Designer Challenge”. You will see plenty of other really fine work by clicking on the logo below.
To give the butterfly an even more watercolor look, I cut out another of the butterfly thinlit in Indigo Ink, stamped the butterfly “body part” on it and then clipped away until I had the look I thought I wanted. Then I just added wisps of Island Indigo ink to make it look even more watercolored. I am very happy with the way it turned out! To match the dotted background on the sentiment banner, I used the dotted border from Watercolor Wings and stamped off in Mint Macaron.
