#GDP005 I Global Design Project I www.thepapercaper.com.au by Jessica WilliamsIt’s Monday and that means another fresh challenge from the Global Design Project. This week, it’s our second colour challenge.

It takes me a little bit of thought to get going but then I’m off and I’ve loved the (very different) results of the two GDP colour challenges I’ve done. This week’s card started out quite differently to my original plan but I love it all the same.

It’s a little bit of crazy which I love. I started out stamping and embossing the geometric background using Dotty Angles. Then I tinted some white acrylic paint with drops of reinker, took the background outside and literally threw paint at it. The result is lots of random splotches of fun and colour. From there, I accessorised the card with cardstock and ribbons in the challenge colours. I used my pinking shears to create the fun tiny zigzag pieces and as I’m yet to invest in the little ‘White Perfect Accent’ dots, I grabbed a vanilla enamel dot (from the Holiday Catalogue) and embossed it with white embossing powder. I deliberately left the cake black and white so that it would stand out from the noisy background.

I hope you like my fun, noisy, party card.
