How do you create your own DSP? CI#158

Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn.

Today is a colour challenge day!!  Check out these colours, and that photo!!  Just fabulous.

Soooooo, I came up with this fun accordian fold that I can create using 1 sheet of cardstock to make 2 cards!!  

BUT, it's a really great card for using Designer Series Paper, and I needed the project to fulfil the specific colours of our challenge!!  So, I had to create my own DSP!!  I lined up all the cut pieces for my card, and then merrily stamped along the bottom edge using the lovely Painted Lavender stamp set and the Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink, and then I used a blending brush around the edges.  

Because the Blueberry Bushel is such a bold colour with the other subtle ones, I decided to make it the feature element.  I added colour to my butterflies using a brayer and then stamped more butterflies from the Painted Lavender stamp set.  

The greetings come from the Perennial Postage stamp set which works as a suite companion to the Painted Lavender.  

My final touch is a couple of gold dragonflies - soft and sweet. If you love this card and want to see me create it - check my Facebook page on Thursday when I will make it for you!!  Or check my channel on Youtube here: Handmade by Julia Quinn YouTube in a week.

THIS card is actually my first attempt at my final card - much simpler without the extra sponging using the blending brush.

It gave me a great starting point for my more detailed card with the handmade DSP!
