When I first saw the sketch I immediately thought "Valentine", since we are only a week away from that particular celebration. But then I figured, it doesn't have to be a romantic card in the traditional sense, so I set about creating a card that would still appeal to a guy (if a woman was giving it), but not be smothered in pinks, reds and hearts!
I love the soft, almost ethereal look of the technique I used to create this watery picture. Called Water stamping, it gives a ghostly appearance to your images. The trick was to heavily apply ink to the card. Spritz the stamp with a fine mist of water from about 30cm away, then stamp on your inked card. I held it for a few seconds just to be sure the water was actually picking up some of that ink.
The Design Team at Global Design Project have been astounded by the number of entries we have had playing along recently and we are truly grateful for each of you who enjoy the challenges we set each week. We hope you will play along this week too.
