One of my favourite challenges at Global Design Project is CASE the Designer.  Each time we have this, we have a different Design Team member in the spotlight and this week it is our very own Kylie Bertucci.  There are a few definitions of CASE around, but here at GDP it means to Copy And Selectively Edit.

I took the floral theme and layout of Kylie's original project and turned my card into a Birthday card.  I can never have too many of these!

I  have admired various cards using watercolour and white heat embossing and this was the perfect opportunity to try this technique myself.  I have to say, I loved it.  It made water colouring so easy and I didn't have to be particularly careful as the ink stayed within the lines when I laid it down.  Great for a beginner!

I used the beautiful line art stamps from the Oh So Succulent stamp set for my background and a simple banner for my sentiment.  I didn't want to hide the watercolouring panel behind a lot of fussy layers.  I also used watercolour paper as this stands up to a lot of water really well.  Don't be afraid to mix colours together either, that was the fun part!

Join us this week with your reinvention of Kylie's sweet card and upload your project to the gallery.  We would love to see what you do!  See you at Global Design Project!
