Global Design Project 085| Color Challenge

It is time for another color challenge at Global Design Project this week.   #GDP085  I began the process for this challenge the same way I do all color challenges.  I took inventory of what I had that might work for my card this week.  I knew the only ink color I have from the 2015-2017 In Colors was Watermelon Wonder, so I knew that would be one of the three colors used.  I then went through my cardstock and DSP and discovered some options.  I chose to use Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon for my other two colors for this challenge.

 I knew I wanted to create something using the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the Balloon Punch.  I used the punch to punch out balloons from DSP in the correct colors and cut banners out in those colors as well.  After deciding on the design, I felt like something was still missing.  I decided to use the streamers stamp from the Balloon Adventures stamp set and stamp streamers in Watermelon Wonder on the Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I felt like that gave it just the added touch of party atmosphere that it needed.

I chose to add a balloon and banner to the inside of the card to keep the festive mood going.  I colored in the word "full" in the sentiment with the black marker to draw your attention to the sentiment so it wouldn't get lost in a sea of Watermelon Wonder.

Make sure you check out the amazing inspiration for #GDP085 created by the design team and see all the other entries at Global Design Project 085| Color Challenge

If you love these great colors, don't miss your opportunity to get them before they are gone.  The Balloon Adventures stamp set is also retiring at the end of this month.
