Gina K Preview Day 3 - Hand in Hand


This card features Melanie Muenchinger's newest stamp set for Gina K, called Hand in Hand. The images in this set are just perfect to symbolize almost any relationship or occasion. There are several wonderful sentiments to go with the images. I loved the one I used for this card, "love at first touch."

I used Copic markers to color the image and I can tell I need some practice doing skin tones. I was just borrowing my mom's markers, but I am getting for Christmas. Yay! Anyone have suggestions for which colors to use for skin tones? Next I used my Versa Mark pen to go over the entire image and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Then I sponged the background using So Saffron and Apricot Appeal. I added some brads and paper piercing. The card base is Apricot Appeal.

For more peeks at Hand in Hand, be sure to visit the rest of the design team and be sure to leave a comment on Gina's blog for a chance to win. Tomorrow we will be previewing one more set and then at 7pm central, there will be a release party in the Gina K forums.

Very precious card, Theresa! You brought me to the memories of when I was holding my son's little tiny hand and listening to his breathing...

I think it looks GREAT, you're too hard on yourself! I've been using Skin White and Baby Skin Pnk which are both in Box A and I like them a lot, but want to add more shades so I can do some different ethnicities, HTH!

beautiful card, TFS!
hugs!!

No way, Theresa! You did good! Really good! I agree with Melanie. I think you're too hard on yourself! This card is darling. It would be perfect in the boys' baby albums. Such wonderful memories this card brings to mind! Thank you!

Girl, I love it. It's very soft, and dimensional. If you need work with your Copic's, I can't wait to see what you do later on!

I just got a brand new great-nephew yesterday evening, and will have to order this set to use as a scrapbook "front page" for his momma!
