Mixing It Up #GDP076

Today’s project will be entered into the Global Design Challenge #076.  The challenge is to case Kylie Bertucci’s project in any way…card design, color combo or using the same stamp set.

Here’s Kylie’s  card…

So I flipped her design and came up with this…

I”ve been dying to get ink on this stamp set!  Isn’t it cute?

It’s a little bit retro which is why I was attracted to it initially.

The mixing bow and mixer were colored with Water Color Pencils, smoothed with the white pencil and covered in Thin Tipped Glue before “fussy cutting”…

Inside the mitt was stamped on the Designer Series Paper and “fussy cut”…

This was a fun challenge to take part in.  If you would like the info to participate (there’s a new one each week), here’s the link.

  1. What a cute card, Billie and perfect take on Kylie’s challenge. I love the colors you used and the sentiments in this set are so sweet. We’ve had sun, a snow shower for a few minutes and now more sun, with temps in the 30’s all day! How crazy is that!! Mother Nature is totally confused. The “b-ism” is right on!! If we all sprinkled fairy dust every day, the world would be more fun and less stressful! Enjoy your date night and movie, if you find one. That’s a nice way to end the week and start the weekend. Take care.

    • It’s the first time I’ve entered her challenges and I enjoyed the challenge. I love this set because it’s sort of retro. I’ve got a couple more ideas to use it in some other color combos. No movie but a nice dinner out…B!
