#GDP40 Global Design Project A challenge and some serendipity

I have been wondering what to use for my first blog post, until Brian King posted about the Global Design Project.

#GDP40 is to be a case of this great card by Shawn DE Oliveira.


Shawn is a very talented member of our team. I didn’t know if I could hang with him, but when I realized (serendipity here) he used one of my favorite sets (Butterfly Basics) and he colored the image (my favorite thing to do), I had to give it a shot.

I used Butterfly Basics and Timeless Textures stamp sets. Card stock is a crumb cake base (Shawn’s favorite), Peekaboo Peach layer, water color paper for the image (stamped in Archival Black ink), and a strip of Dapper Denim.

I colored the image with Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz, using my clear Wink of Stella pen. Sadly, the picture doesn’t pick up the shimmer!
