Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: 3D Project

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects inspired by our theme: 3D projects. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

I knew I wanted to make a box with a flower on top for my 3D project, awesome... Step 1... tick.

Next step was to decide on the type and shape of the box, so I though OK great, I'll make a hexagon box using the Window Box thinlits. Step 2... tick.

Then came the decision on the flowers, and after much deliberation I decided on using the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set and co-ordinating Blossom Builder punch. Step 3... tick

Last decision was my colour scheme, and for the life of me I couldn't decide on what colours I should use - there were just too many options. Step 4... ???

When this sort of thing happens, I like to check out some creative challenges for a little inspiration. Given I was having trouble deciding on a colour palette, I went looking for colour challenges and found this weeks Global Design Project #129 Colour Challenge which I decided was perfect for my project. I hope you agree :)

Here is my project:

I am currently in the process of putting together a PDF tutorial showing how I created this project.
