Gina K CSS Alumni

Hi and Welcome!


Tonight the Gina K CSS Alumni gals are hosting a sketch hop for you!!
If you came from Peggy Wainman's blog, you are right on track. If not, please go to Stamp TV to start at the beginning so you do not miss the fabulous eye candy the gals have created for you!

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (February 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95. Good luck!!
Tonight we created a project based on a sketch that our very own Melissa Cash designed for us.

This is the sketch...
And here is my take on the sketch. I added a bit more to the sketch, as I usually do, but you can still see the basic sketch in my card. I know I am a rebel!! lol!
I used 3 different Gina K stamps sets on my card. The sentiment is from the stamp set Picture it and is stamped inside a label from the Lovely Labels 2 set. The butterfly is from the Hope is Faith set.
The butterfly is colored with Koh-i-Noor pencils and OMS. I added a bit of sparkle to the wings using my glitter pen and a waterbrush.
The pattern paper is Webster's Page - Hollywood Vogue & Waterfall pack. The cs is Gina K's Ivory and Chocolate Brown pure luxury papers.
The next stop on the hop is to the uber talented Tera Fujan.
Thank you so much for hopping with us!
