It’s Monday, and that means it’s WWYS Challenge time! This week we’re using the Going Global Stamp Set. Click on the image below to see all the great inspiration from the design team and to join in the fun!
Do you ever look at a stamp set and think “I don’t know where to start”? That’s what happened to me with this one. Maybe it’s because all the cards I’ve seen that use this set use muted or masculine colours. I wanted to do something different, so I started with the idea of doing a twilight sky …
By the time I’d finished I had used seven, yes SEVEN different ink colours! Well, it is my first attempt at a scene with this much sponging, so I just kept adding and blending. Lol! I used Shimmery White cardstock as it’s better to sponge on and won’t pill like normal Whisper White cardstock.
To add detail to the scene I used my Basic Black and Basic Grey markers to draw some grass, and some white Stazon ink to add stars using a paint brush and flicking (messy but effective).
I white heat embossed the constellation image onto the background, and the sentiment (which I love!) onto a scrap of Basic Black cardstock, then punched it out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I punched another circle in Sweet Sugarplum cardstock (a luscious colour from the new In Colours coming out in the new Catalogue), and offset layered it under the black circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. This panel was then adhered to a thick Whisper White base using more dimensionals.
If you like this colour combination, please feel free to save and share it. You can find more inspiration on my Pinterest Colour Inspiration Board.
