#GDP078 Sketch Challenge with Mediterranean Moments

Hi Everyone

Thanks for stopping by today. I still can't believe my card was chosen as one of the winners for the last challenge at Global Design Project! You can check out my card and the other winners by clicking the image below.

So onto this week's challenge, #GDP078 which is to follow the sketch layout below. Did you see Barry's card entry yesterday? -

I wanted to play with the Watercolour Pencils again and paired it with the Mediterranean Moments stamp set.

The cat was meowing at me to be coloured and it kinda reminds me of our Minnie...I think I got carried away colouring this one!

Card base is Pool Party, stamped with the hearts from Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set using the 2nd Generation technique in Calypso Coral. Added the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon under the Brick Wall embossed Smoky Slate card. Then mounted the cat image on Crumb Cake card, finishing the design with a quadruple bow with the Linen Thread.

I ended up making a 2nd card for the challenge, changing the orientation of the sketch and using a different image:

I did a quick overall wash with the Aqua Painters first, leaving the edges lighter. I'm really please with how this one turned out and loving the Bermuda Bay / Pumpkin Pie combo.

I had some off cuts from the previous project of the Crumb Cake card which I embossed with the Woodgrain Folder this time. Stamped the flowers in Soft Sky,  again from Perpetual Birthday Calendar set. I trimmed the Burlap Ribbon in half and frayed one end before adding a bow using Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine.

What do you think and which one do you prefer? Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you like my projects for the #GDP078 sketch challenge.

Until next time, BYEEEEE :)
