A few of us have decided to get together a couple of times a month and host a themed hop in order to share our love for Gina K. stamps. If you've arrived from Carolina Buchting
The challenge for this hop is a Color Challenge ~ Kraft or Tan Leather, Green (Creme de Menthe, Grass Green, Fresh Asparagus, or Green Apple) and White. Here's what I came up with:
Card base is GKD PL Kraft, layered with Fresh Asparagus. DP is Basic Grey, "Green at Heart". The border embossing was done with Cuttlebug and I punched out the flower centers with MS punch then used pearls for accent. I used Nestabilities labels 9 on PL White and layered with Green Apple. Sentiment is from GKD Botanicals stamp set.
Here's another one:
I chose to do a little distressing on this card. The card base is GKD PL White, using Kraft for layering. I stamped the flowers and sentiment from the GKD "Friends are Forever" stamp set. The flowers are colored with Copics YG00, YG03, E31 and Y32. Using a ScoreBug I textureized the GKD Creme de Menthe CS then sponged Distress Ink "Antique Linen" to distress it. Using a Nestabilities classic circle, I cut into the CS, leaving the 1/2 circle effect and used Popdots to pop it off the white CS. The buttons were made using Gina's technique of distressed newsprint (only I used a page from an old book), clear buttons and 3D Crystal Lacquer to adhere them to the distressed book print. I then attached them onto some crocheted old lace edging.
Thanks for stopping by. I welcome all comments, so I hope you'll leave me a little note. Have fun at the hop! Ready for more inspiration? Hop on over to the very talented Giovana Smith's blog to see her beautiful project!
