Welcome to #GDP004! Are you having fun? I have really been enjoying these challenges and this week is no exception. The task this week is to do a little CASEing!

This gorgeous card by Louise offers so much inspiration. The layout, stamp set, colour combination. For me there was only one direction to go in.

My favourite stamp set, Timeless Love, just fits right in with this challenge so out it came. I first stamped a wreath using my stamp-a-majig for perfect placement in Jet Black StazOn ink. I used StazOn because I then used Hello Honey, Night of Navy and Mint Macaron inks to watercolour the wreath. I’ve been wanting to try a little abstract watercolouring for a while but haven’t had the opportunity until now. I feel like that style suits the Timeless Love stamps perfectly because they’re so rustic and vintage. To achieve this look, I first painted on some bold ink in an approximate area that I wanted coloured. I then lightened the ink a little by adding water and then filled in any remaining gaps. It didn’t matter that I went out of the lines on places. That’s all part of the look this time.

Once the wreath was finished, I cut a little heart from the centre using the small heart from the Baker’s Box thinlits set. Then I used my paper piercing tool and guide to pierce the holes for the thread. I backstitched some Metallic Gold Thread through the holes and secured into place. You could use a sewing machine instead of hand sewing, but I didn’t trust myself to get the machine stitching straight. I tied a little gold thread bow at the top of the wreath.

I decided to try a little experiment next. I really wanted some navy glimmer coming through the heart. I know that people have used alcohol markers to colour glimmer paper but I wasn’t sure if it would work to just use our water based stampin’ write markers. Guess what? It does. I did several layers of colour because it does lift off and fade a little but the end result looks great.

Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from Endless Birthday Wishes and mounted my card.

On the inside I replicated the watercolour on a small strip and mounted it with my coordinating colours of Night of Navy and Very Vanilla.
