Hello! It's day 3 of inspiration hops for Gina K Designs and today the design team are featuring the fabulous new Petals and Wings StampTV Kit. There are so many beautiful, whimsical images in this set! You'll love it. I adore the little flowers I used in this card.  (details below)











For more inspiration, check out the rest of the design team blogs… 





 To start, I stamped the flowers on a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock. I used Copics to color starting with Y17 in the centers.

 I added Y21.

 Then filled in with Y000.

 I decided I wanted a little more color in the centers, so I added a little YR07.

 For the foliage, I filled in with YG03 and shaded with YG95

 I cut a circle using a Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities die template and sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves ink around the edges.

I stamped this whimsical silhouette image, using Memento Bamboo Leaves, but stamped off on scratch paper to make the image lighter.

I stamped the frame directly onto Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus card stock and cut it out. I adhered the circle onto the frame and then adhered the flowers. The sentiment is also from Petals and Wings StampTV Kit. I used a Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares die to cut a piece of Pure Luxury Black Onyx to layer and mounted it all on a Kraft card base.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!
