Global Design Project 197

This week's colour combination at Global Design Project is both subtle and pretty. It pairs up two of this year's new In-Colours, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile, with an old favourite, Pear Pizzazz.

This is what I did with them, using my latest purchase, Seaside Notions.

The water effect was stamped using the new Birch background stamp. For the marine life, I used an aquapainter and ink to colour the images. My fussy cutting skills got a bit of a work out with Seaside Notions but worth it, I think!

Then I couldn't resist adding it an extra layer to ground the sea-life cluster using one of the fabulous shapes from the Tasteful Backgrounds die set. That's backed with a piece of Pear Pizzazz, also stamped with Birch
