Gina K March Release Inspiration Hop Day 4

Hello! It's the last day of the Gina K Designs March Release Inspiration Hops and today we are featuring the fabulous new StampTV Kit, Springtime Silhouettes.  You can see a video introducing the contents of the new Springtime Silhouettes kit, click here.

  I just love this butterfly and silhouette flowers from the new kit.You can find all the new release products here in the Gina K Store. For more inspiration check out what the rest of design team has to show you.

I stamped the butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, beginning with Y17. 

Added YG23. 

Added BG02. 

Added B04. 

Added B24. 

Then added B66.


I meant to leave those little dots on the wings uncolored, but forgot. So I went back and filled them in with my opaque white gel pen. 

For the background, I sponged Memento Lulu Lavender. 

Then sponged Memento Grape Jelly. 

Then sponged Memento Paris Dusk. 

I cut out the butterfly and added Pop Dots to the wings for added dimension. 

The flowers and sentiment were stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink. I layered the background with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a White card base. Then I glued the butterfly body directly onto the background, with the wings popped up.

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