Global Design Project #GDP042 Sketch Challenge


I finally spent sometime in my studio for the first time in a very long time!! It's been a whirlwind few weeks and I will share more on that this week, but let's just say that stamping in my studio was very much needed and helped keep my minds off what was happening in our world!!

Of course with no stamping in a long time, I had NO crafting MOJO!! The best way that I find helps beat those crafting blues is to participate in some challenges online. I headed over to Global Design Project and was excited to see this sketch challenge by my friend Teneale Williams!! Thanks Teneale for the inspiration!!!


I had a few stamps sets sitting on my desk and when I saw this sketch I knew that Swirly Bird would be a perfect match for this sketch!! Not sure if you have seen the Swirly Bird Crazes on Pinterest, but there is so much you can do with this stamp set. I have seen birds, trees, snowman (yes snowman), sailboats, pinwheels, kites and so much more. It truly is a MUST in your collection!!

The first thing that came to my mind was a bird's nest and I thought the sketch was perfect fit for it. I used one of my new favourite colour combination for this card!!


I love the soft tones of this colour combination and can see it being used for so many different occasions. I even think this combination would be great for Christmas. (hmm, I might need to try that one out).

There are so many possibles for this sketch and I can't wait to see what you create. Looking for some inspiration, head over to the Global Designs Project website where you can check out the gallery for this sketch!! Make sure to give yourself sometime, the projects are amazing!!

Interesting in knowing what I used on this card, you can see all the supplies that I used in this project in the clickable links below.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
