Watercolouring and embossing with Gina K

It's time for a new challenge at Die Cut Divas and this a new sponsor ...
Gina K. Designs, LLC 

Yes we are lucky to have the wonderful Gina K designs sponsoring us this month.    The team were lucky enough to have got a discount from Gina to get some stamps to inspire you.... and what is our latest challenge....

...........make a project you associate with April (such as Easter, Rain, Storms, April Fools Day, Spring, Autumn, IRS/Taxes or April holidays (www.holidayinsights.com) 

My card is inspired by Spring.... 


 The technique I used can be found here on StampTV - Gina K's video channel.  There are literally hundreds of videos here for you to view.  A great source of inspiration.
I have used Spring Wishes set.  The leaves however are from another set as in my day's stamping the leaves from the set just up and disappeared on me!  Don't you just hate when that happens.  So far they have eluded recapture!   I used splotches of Zig markers where I thought I would place my stamps, then clear embossed the stamps.  Finished with coating of black ink - not to heavy to allow some of the white and coloured background to show through.   Die cut the panel with a Lil' Inkers die and added a sentiment die cut with Spellbinders ovals and scallop ovals with some seam binding ribbon.  

I can highly recommend getting some Gina K stamps - they are such great quality and her StampTV videos are the best.  Awesome techniques, great inspiration for using the StampTV kits available in store and just all round great viewing. 

Thanks for visiting and hope you will join us at Die Cut Divas this month
