Daring to Dream: The Card Concept Challenge


Well, hello there! And welcome to the Card Concept's newest challenge, 
Daring to Dream.

Confession time... I had the hardest time with this photo. Why? Too masculine?
Muted colors? No flowers? I finally decided to focus on the globes, (always
loved globes!) and design my own way! That's a hint for you too, folks. Do
what you love, create your own way! 

And, I rather like the results! 
On water color paper, I smooshed color onto the surface with a stamp block.
It took 3 tries, and this is the one I liked best.

Glorious Globes from PTI haven't seen ink in a while, and I love the sizes in the set.
Simple stamping, and a few pop ups for the books and globes.
In case you can't read it, the sentiment says: 'You will change the world.'
The card is for a brilliant DIL/Geography teacher, who is truly on a path to
change with education. 

Play along for two weeks, and remember to add our challenge photo and
pick a style. Choose one of ours or design one of your own.

By the way, mine is Mixed Media (watercolors and inks) and Clean and Layered.

Products used:
PTI: Glorious Globes
The Greetery: All Blessings Flow (greenery sprigs), Crimped Frame Die.
All Altenew Inks
Tim Holtz watercolor card stock
