Gina K Preview - Pretty As A Peacock and Lawn and Garden

It's day two of previews for Gina K Designs and today we have two new stamp sets to share with you. First up is a wonderful new set from Asela Hopkins, Pretty As A Peacock. I love the gorgeous images in this set and the sentiments are just perfect! (step by step photos below)

Next up, Rupa Shevde designed a beautiful new set, Lawn and Garden. This set will be perfect for summer and fall! Wait until you see all the images. I colored with Copics and then sponged the background. For the lower panel, I embossed using the Spellbinders Impressabilities Butterflies stencil. After embossing with my Cuttlebug, I used it as a stencil and airbrushed using my Copic Airbrush system. I love the look of airbrushing with these stencils.

For even more samples with the stamp sets being previewed today, check out these designer's links:
We'd also like to invite you to attend our Release Party this Thursday, July 1st starting at 7 pm central on StampTV! There will be challenges, contest questions, and more samples from our designers on all the new stamp sets being released this month! We'd love to have you join in on the fun!

To make the peacock card, I stamped the image and colored with Copics, starting with BG07.

Added BG02 and used my blender pen to blend into the highlights.

Used B04 and YG03 on the centers of the tail feathers.

Added B00 to the tail.

Used C3 and N5 to add some shadows to the tail feathers.

I used my Stardust Glitter pen to add some sparkle to the feathers.

I used my new Nestabilities Blossom die to cut some Pure Luxury White C/S and sponged Memento Bahama Blue while it was still in the die.

I also cut a rectangle and sponged that the same way.

Stamped the peacock feather lightly around the edges with Bahama blue.

The sentiment is also from Pretty As A Peocock. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onxy and added a big bow. The peacock was cut out and adhered using Pop Dots.

Thanks for visiting. I'll be back tomorrow with more previews. Have a wonderful day!
