Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1

Hello! This week the Gina K Design Team are showcasing stamp sets from the new release last night. Today we are featuring the brand new StampTV Kit, Falling For You. What a gorgeous kit this is, full of fun, whimsical images! Details for my card are below, but for now, check out what the rest of the design team has to show you...

I stamped the bird with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used Copics to color, starting with YR04.

Added YR12.

Added Y17.

Added Y15.

Added Y13.

I decided the head wasn't dark enough so I added a little YR07 and used YR04 for blend.

For the wing, I started with BG05.

Added B02.

Added V06.

Added V04.

Filled in with V000.

On the tail, I started with YR07.

Added YR04.

Added Y17.

Filled in with Y15. After coloring, I cut out the image.

I sponged the background with Memento Cantaoupe ink.

Then sponged Memento Angel Pink in the opposite corner.

Sponged Memento Rose Bud ink.

Sponged Memento Tangelo.

I stamped the branch with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I colored the leaves with YG23.

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Bubblegum Pink card base. I used my Scor-Buddy to score lines on the card base and oval Nestabilities to cut out the sentiment.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
