Beautiful Promenade | Global Design Project 153

Hello and thanks for stopping over for today’s project. Summer isn’t gone yet, in my area of the world. We are experiencing a heat wave and the kids are back into the swimming pool every afternoon. Summer flowers are still in bloom and we are about the start seeing sunflowers everywhere! It’s a fun time of the year for our family. This project is inspired by the heat and sunflowers that we are waiting to bloom 🙂 Don’t be too surprised to start seeing water colors again as well!

Ink Blending on die cuts

 

There is a color challenge this week at the Global Design Project, beautiful and happy colors. I had a play with a few techniques before setting on the project you see today. The great thing about technique play is that those scraps can be used in other projects. I set aside the Glossy White Paper technique samples I had created and went into a different design direction.

There is a subtle different in my eye when looking at die cuts that have been colored after they are cropped away from paper versus first coloring and then cropping. The latter version will afford a nice blend on the paper but the sides of intricate die cuts will remain the color of the card stock. Flip the circumstances and add coloring/ink blending AFTER the pieces are die cut and the entire top and sides of the intricate die cut are colored. Another benefit of adding colors after the pieces are die cut is that it’s really easy to darken or enhance the outside edges of the paper. Have a good look at this project and it’s clear just how well the paper will allow the ink to build up around the outside.

All of the die cuts were colored with sponge daubers and ink blended before being attached to the card base. On the card base, under the large die cut, I added subtle stamping of one of the floral images in Beautiful Promenade.
