Hello,  it is Monday of  Global Design Project and today we are Casing our fabulous team member Paula Dobson

Paula is Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in New Zealand and her projects are adorable, colourful, creative, unique...  Her  watercolour  is just spectacular.

I used Balloon Celebration bundle to make my entry for  today.  This is a very simple card and what is interesting about it is the faux inlay die cuts I have created by  using the Balloon Bouquet Punch

Below a picture of Paula's card, the  source of inspiration this week

I have cased Paula's card  sketch,  technique and stamping style (contrasting light and dark shades of ink) and I also used a multi step stamp set (Balloon Celebration by Stampin' Up!) . 

I used Blushing Bride  ink and the new Flirty Flamingo ink to stamp the balloons on Whisper White card stock. I stamped over the darkest balloons with Whisper White Craft Ink  and for the balloon strings I applied Smoky Slate ink. I  also applied  clear Wink of Stella  to add glitter to the stamped stars in the background.  To embellish I used Silver Metallic thread all products from Stampin' Up!

For the  card base I used half A4 sheet of Flirty Flamingo card stock and I folded in half.

 Faux inlay die cuts
