Hello and welcome to my blog wherever you are in the world today, 

For this week's Global Design Project challenge I have made this super cute card using the Darling Donkey's Stamp Set that you can have for FREE from January 2021 as part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion!

This week's challenge is based on a card sketch (see below) which is always one of my favourite challenges as it is wide open for interpretation, and I have felt very inspired by creations from the design team.  
For my design, I have kept the design quite simple with a background of white as I really wanted the cute little donkey to stand out, which I think he does.  

To create the donkey, I have stamped the image onto Whisper White Cardstock using a Basic Gray Classic Stampin' Pad and coloured with a selection of Stampin' Blends Pens (colours listed below).  I have only added a small outline of ink as I didn't want to overwhelm the look. 

Donkey outline - Smoky Slate, light and dark, blended with the Color Lifter
Donkey hair, tip of tail and hooves - Smoky Slate dark
Donkey ears - Petal Pink light
Donkey nose - Gray Granite light
Flower - Rococo Rose light and Old Olive light

For the extra detail, I have added a die-cut heart shape that I have cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies, and fussy cut flowers from another FREE Sale-a-Bration product, the Paper Blooms Designer Series Papers.  

The sentiment comes from the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set, and for added detail I have heat-embossed one of them onto Basic Gray Cardstock using White Stampin Emboss Powder

I think this card would be perfect for Valentine's Day, or just to let someone know you are thinking of them.
