GDP49 and Casology Dream

I was on Facebook chatting with some crafters the other day about favourite challenges. This card is inspired by two of them, even though I don't play them as often as I'd like.

Global Design Project has a lovely colour challenge and Casology's cue word is 'Dream.'

An interesting couple of things to combine really. Add into the mix that tonight, after my Thursday card class, I wanted to play with Touches of Texture because that's my featured set next month - and I just like it a lot! So, here's where I ended up:

The masked and sponged strip has been flicked with water to lift some of the ink. Pear Pizzazz at the bottom leads up through to the Daffodil Delight, leading the eye from the earth upwards to the sun and the bee taking flight: a kind of visual journey to support the sentiment. The lacy pattern splats run through from horizontal to vertical up to the sun and bee also to lead the eye upwards.

The bee's wings and the flower centres have a wee coat of clear Wink of Stella, not so visible in the photo.

And a little peek inside...

  1. Your card is a visual delight Jan! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project this week.

  2. Really lovely delicate design, love how you have muted the colours together and the touch of grunge.

    A winner by all accounts


    1. Thank you! Your comments are always so generous.

  3. Such a pretty card Jan! I love how the green on your blended strip scatters to ground your sentiment. And the matching envelope is lovely too. Thanks for joining us at CASology this week.

  4. So pretty! Love the blended 'grounding' for your pretty flowers! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!
