Just For You

Hello! Today the Gina K Design team is sharing projects using Nina Bracket's beautiful new stamp set, Lovely Shelf. I love this set! I used three of the images, colored with Copics and cut out. The new Ocean Mist Pure Luxury Cardstock, along with Vibrant Violet, was the perfect compliment to the lavender images. More details below, but for now..

I used Copics to color the images, starting with V09.

Added V06.

Filled in with V01, then used my blender pen to push some highlights back in.

Used G28 in the foliage.

Added G24.

Filled in with G21 and again used my blender pen for the highlights.

I used C1 and C3 for the vase, B00 for the water and Y17 for the centers of the flowers.

I colored the teapot and cup with the same colors and technique as the flower petals, then cut out all three images. The circle background was cut using circle Nestabilities, then sponged with Tempting Turquoise ink while still in the die. Next, I used my Fluer De Lis Spellbinders die to cut a piece of Vibrant Violet Pure Luxury cardstock. I also used an EK Success border punch to create the large scallops on Ocean Mist and Vibrant Violet Pure Luxury cardstock. Oval nestabilities were used for the sentiment.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!
