Gina K Previews - Day 4

Hey, it's the final day of previews for the new Gina K Designs release. All the new stamp sets will be available from the online store after 10pm Central on Thursday.  Today we are showing two more stamp sets. The first is Asela Hopkins' latest, called, Winter Wings. I love the realistically drawn birds in this set! More details for this card below.

Next, is the new Free With Three stamp set, from Gina K, called Labeled With Love. This is another set that coordinated with Spellbinders Labels and includes perfectly sized sentiments for inside. How fun and it's free with the purchase of any three stamp sets, starting when the new sets go live on Thursday night! I paired the framed sentiment, from Labeled With Love, with the flower stem from Fanciful Fall.

For more samples with tonight's new stamp sets, please visit these participating designer's blog links:
I hope you can come to our release party tonight (Thursday September 30.)  We'll have contest questions, challenges, chatter, and lots of samples with the new stamp sets to share during the party. Please make plans to join us from 7-10 central on StampTV!


I colored the bird with Copics, starting with C1.



Added N1.



Added N3.



Added N5.



Started with B41 on the blue part.



Added B21.



Added B24.


Then added B26. I used N5 on the beak.



Used R05 on the berries, YG95 on the leaves and just a quick swipe of E35 along the branch for a pop of color.



I masked off the bird to protect it from my sponging, then sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink. Sometimes I mask and other times I don't depending on how dark I've colored the image and if I think the color I'm sponging will affect the coloring of the image. In this case, the blue is fairly light and sponging yellow over it probably would have turned my bluejay into a greenjay.



Then I sponged a little Memento Desert Sand.




Then I just stamped the sentiment off to the side and that was it. A very simple card, but I really like how it turned out.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
