Gina K Designs Release Day Blog Hop

Hello! Today is the latest Gina K Designs release and I have a peek at my newest stamp set, Signs of Spring. This set, along with all the other new stamp sets, will be available tonight at 7pm Central. All the illustrators are hopping today and sharing projects featuring their new stamp sets.

 
Today I have a video of my project. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color. A lot of you have been asking to see ways to color using different mediums, so I was inspired to break out my color pencils for a change. I'll have Copic marker coloring video using the crocus flowers coming soon. 

Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they have created! I hope you can come to the release party tonight at StampTV. We'll have chatting, challenges and more samples from the design team. 

Start hopping here:

What wonderful card and the coloring of the crocus is just beautiful. I have color pencils, but always feel a bit intimated with them, but tku for the great techniques.

Beautiful card. My Prismas have been neglected since I discovered Copics. Time to break them out again. Thanks for the great tutorial - hope to see more with Prismas. I can't wait to see the rest of this set. The crocus is definitely a sign of spring, and I'm so ready to see one!

Beautiful flowers. I always enjoyed your sponging tutorials and have been able to actually make some nice looking cards. It was interesting to watch you color with the pencils. I have regular color pencils and dont like the look I get, looks like a childs coloring maybe I need to add some mineral spirits to smooth out the wax.
