Today's preview is a brand new Gina K Designs set, called Best Fishes. It will be available for purchase Thursday evening, after the release party in the Gina K forums. Not only are the images in this set so cute, they are also great for creating a little underwater scene.
For more samples using Best Fishes and Asela Hopkin's new set, be sure to visit the rest of the design team.
And Mary Anderson, our In the Spotlight designer for January!
Here is a step by step tutorial of how I made this card...
First I stamped the mirror from Perfectly Polished (available from Gina K Designs on Thursday).
Next I created a mask by punching a circle in a piece of scrap paper. I used re-positionable tape to hold it in place, masking all but the reflective portion of the mirror.
I stamped the fish from Best Fishes onto smooth piece of scrap rubber to pick up the reverse image, and then stamped that onto the mirror. Then I removed the mask.
I don't have a reverse image stamp, so had to improvise. If you don't have one, you can use a piece of rubber like I did (I saved a large scrap when cutting a stamp set a few months ago), but you could also use acetate.
Next I added some additional images to create a scene. The lipstick is from Perfectly Polished.
Colored the images with Copic markers.
Tore a piece of copy paper to form a mask to create a sea bottom. I used re-positionable tape again to hold it in place.
Next I used Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue ink to sponge in the sea water background.
Used another mask to sponge in the sea bottom, using So Saffron and just a bit of Creamy Caramel.
After I removed the mask, I took a fine tipped black marker and added a few speckles and lines to help "ground" the seaweed and mirror. I also used a gray Copic marker to add some subtle shadows.
And here is a close up of the finished project. Thanks for stopping by. I will be back tomorrow with the final day of previews showcasing two more new Gina K sets, plus a special "new" product. Hmm, I wonder what it could be...
Have a great day!
