Let's Party with Balloons #GDP023

I generally start lots of projects and only finish a one or two in one sitting. I'm like a new puppy going from shiny thing to shiny thing! I have lots of project ideas and I really need to get better at finishing them off! Todays card is just that, a card I started and then set aside to finish another day and for once it paid off! The theme over at the Global Design Project this week is Balloons, this one is challenge #GDP023.

I'm a big fan of Tempting Turquoise! But I know that there are some stampers that find it hard to use. It is such a fun colour that easily coordinates with other blues when used in the right proportions. My top tip's for using this bold bright colour is to cover it with vellum to soften the colour intensity and use it sparingly, only a touch will do!

  2. Carolina, I am "one" of those others that find Tempting Turquoise hard. For a long time I refused to even own it, lol! But I do now and find myself using it more and more. Love your top tip for using it and happy we could help you finally finish this great card! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us again!
