Welcome to another Gina K. Design Team blog hop. Today we're featuring
cards with a Gratitude theme to them. If you came from Sharon's blog, you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over
to StampTV where you will find a list of
all those participating in today's hop. Next on the hop is Tina!
I used images from Follow Your Dreams, along with Celebrate The Season and Hope Grows on my card.
I stamped the larger dragonfly, from Follow Your Dreams, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic markers, starting with V06.
Filled in with B00, then added some sparkle with my Startdust Glitter Pen.
Next, I colored the smaller dragonfly, starting with R08.
Filled in with Y11, then used C5 on the body. After coloring, I cut out both images.
For my background, I cut Pure Luxury White card stock to 3 1/4 by 4 1/2 inches and sponged Memento Lulu Lavender ink.
Sponged Memento Summer Sky.
I cut a sticky note to 2 1/4 by 3 inches and used it to mask the center of the background. Then I sponged more Lulu Lavender ink.
Then I used the small leafy branch, from Hope Grows and stamped around the edges of the sticky note.
Next I removed the mask and used it to mask along the bottom edge. I stamped the greenery, from Follow Your Dreams, with Memento Bamboo Leaves.
Added another sticky note mask along the left side and stamped the branch, from Celebrate the Season, using Memento Bamboo Leaves, but this time, stamped off on scratch paper first, to lighten the image.
Stamped the greeting, from Follow Your Dreams, using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
I layered with Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet and used Lovely Lavender for my card base. I used my Scor-buddy to add a few score lines to accent the sentiment. I also added score lines to the card base lining them up to match the ones on the background panel. Used a corner rounder to round the bottom corners of my card base.
And here is a close up or the dragonflies so you can see the shimmer from the Stardust Glitter Pen.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!
