Chase Your Dreams with Country Livin' - Vote for my card

Thanks for coming to my blog today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that HERE

Our theme for this highlight is Travel! I enjoy making masculine cards and this 'Country Livin' Stamp set is just so perfect for any man in your life. The sentiment is from another great 'travel' set from the new Occasions catty - 'Chase Your Dreams'. I'm also in love with the new Watercolor Pencils. I don't think I've created a project without them since the catalogue lauched on Jan 4th.
Watercoloring is very relaxing and super easy too. Simply colour in a small section with a Watercolor Pecncil and then 'blend' the colour out with either a Blender Pen or Aqua Painter.  For this project I used Shimmery Cardstock to stamp on the truck.

For best watercolour results:
  • Blender Pen works best with Shimmery Cardstock
  • Aqua Painter works best with Watercolor Paper

Chase your Dreams #gdp069

This week I have created a quick card with some products that you might not necessarily think to put together. The GDP challenge this week was to use Delightful Dijon, Silver & your colour choice on a project. Now it would have been so easy to add in black, and no doubt it would have looked fab, but I love the variation I've created by adding Island Indigo.
  I silver embossed the building onto Island Indigo cardstock and it looks fabulous.  
I was inspired by the designers colour swatch over at the Global Design Project with challenge #GDP069
Try making this card!
  • Cardbase in Whisper White cardstock
  • A4 cut in half at 10.5cm and scored at 14.9cm
  • Front:
  • Island Indigo Frame 3-3/4" x 5-1/2"
  • Urban Underground Panel 3-5/8" x 5-3/8"
  •  Silver Foil 2" x 3-5/8" embossed with your favourite die
  • Island Indigo Frame 2" x 3-1/2"
  • Whisper White Panel 1-7/8" x 3-3/8"
