Timeless Textures and Mixed Borders with GDP #033 Colour Challenge

I have been missing in action due to school holiday but I am back in action with this week's Global Design Project - Colour Challenge #033 and a look at a new stamp set

I started the project with a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock slightly smaller than  the card front. I took the 3 ink pads for the colour challenge, Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral and Night of Navy and sponged them onto the card stock with a wedge of out Stampin' Sponges for each colour making sure to overlap/blend the colours into each other. Next I took the Timeless Textures scratched stamp and stamped off each colour before stamping onto each sponged colour. I stamped a number of the stamps from the Timeless Textures stamp set in Sahara Sand around and on a diagonal on the card to finish the background. I also stamped off these stamped on a same sized piece of Thick Whisper White card stock for the inside panel. I stamped the sentiment from Mixed Borders into a scrap of Thick Whisper White in Calypso Coral and punch with our 2" circle punch. I used the excess ink from my sponges to create a softer but similar background on the sentiment and the inside panel. I mounted the card front to a Night of Navy card base with Stampin' Dimensionals and sentiment also on Stampin Dimensionals. The inside panel was adhered to the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

You can how my design process works, hints and some chat with friends by watching the video for how I made this card on Periscope till 6pm Wednesday 27th April
