Global Design Project 25

When I saw the colour challenge at Global Design Project my interest was immediately piqued by the beautiful combination, although it's taken until tonight to get the idea out of my head and into reality.

A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of attending my first demonstrator Stamp Camp with the Creative Inkers. While there, Jackie Noble (aka Creative Jax) gave a fabulous presentation around the Going Global suite and in passing showed a card she'd made with the set using retiform technique. This was something I'd never seen before but I came home and read up about it. This card is my first attempt and it was just so much fun to do! I straight up want to do more!

I used another old favourite set for it - Awesomely Artistic and I'm really happy with how it's turned out. Can't wait to play with other colours and other sets using this technique. Thanks, Jackie, for introducing me to it.

Card: Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Stamps: Awesomely Artistic, Crazy for You
Inks: Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight
Other: Baker's twine, candy dots, dimensionals


  1. Jan, I love your version of this unusual technique using the challenge colours. At first glance I thought you had folded your cardstock, Your sponging and application of colour has really created quite a 3D effect. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us.

    1. Thanks Mary. It was worth Stamp Camp just to see Jackie's card.

  3. Oh wow. Love how the yellow highlights each section. Reminds me of a quilt. Thanks for playing with Global Design Project.
