Wispy Willow Video and Tutorial

Hello there! Yesterday was the new Gina K release party. My new set, The Northwoods 2, was one of the sets released last night and this card was made using images from it.

Here is a look at The Northwoods 2.

And here is a video to show you how I made the card. If you prefer to watch over at Youtube, just click here to go to my channel.

Start by cutting and embossing white cardstock using Spellbinders® Oval Nestabilities. With the die cut still in the die template, sponge around the edges using Gina K Powder Blue ink, mainly toward the top.

Switch to Gina K Ocean Mist and continue sponging along the bottom.

Remove the die cut from the die template and stamp the weeping willow image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Begin coloring some of the darker areas under the tree using Copic marker YG97.

Switch to YG95 and blend out from the previous color, also adding color to the tree foliage.

Fill in the remaining area under the tree and foliage using YG25.

The green under the tree was still a little brighter than I wanted, so I wend over that area with YG93 to tone it down a bit.

For the tree trunk, using E37 to shade, then fill in with E31. Use the blender pen to push in some lighter areas to the ground.

Use B02 and B23 to add some color to the water.

Trim Gina K London Fog cardstock to 3 ½ to 4 ½ inches and layer with a piece of Black Onyx, trimmed slightly larger. Stamp the sentiment at the lower, right corner. Tie silver cord around the layers. Use self adhesive foam squares to adhere the oval to the layers and then adhere all the layers to a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch white card base.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a great day!

I really like your blue moonrise and wispy willow cards. The pink moonrise is also pretty, but since I have never been much of a "pink girl" . . .
