Global Design Project #060 - Happiest of Birthdays

Global Design Project #060 - Happiest of Birthdays

This week's Global Design Project challenge is to case talented designer Brian King:

I always admire Brian's clean layouts. I think the thing I like most about his projects is that he is very deliberate with each element that he uses which always creates something simple, with a lot of punch!  I really like his style!

Take a little trip over to the Global Design Project this week and see what all the talented designers have done to case Brian, and all the beautiful projects posted for this challenge, and play along!

Step by Step

To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:

4-1/4" x 11" Calypso Coral cardstock (card base)

4" x 5-1/4" Watermelon Wonder

3-3/8" x 4-5/8" Basic Black

3-1/4" x 4-1/2" Watercolor paper

1)  Stamp flower image and sentiment on to watercolor paper using Basic Black ink.  Use an aqua painter with Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Always Artichoke inks to watercolor flower image.  When completely dry, highlight flowers with clear Wink of Stella.

2)  Layer Watermelon Wonder cardstock on to card base.  Layer watercolor paper on to Basic Black.  Apply two dabs of adhesive on back side.  Press one end of black twine in to one adhesive dab, wrap around card front and press other end in to second adhesive dab.  Trim end.  Adhere entire piece to card front.  Tie a bow with twine on to twine on card front.
