Hi there! Tonight I am joining in with some of the gals from the Gina K. Designs Center Stage Team to bring you our first challenge for 2012. Tonight we are using a sketch that I created as our inspiration.
You should have arrived at my blog from Linda Payne's amazing blog, if not you can go back to StampTV and start from the beginning.
Being a California girl I knew I wanted to use the GKD Stately Flowers 1 set that was illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. Can I tell you how much I LOVE this California Poppy image? I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto GKD PL White cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor Pencils. I added a wee bit of Diamond Stickles to the flowers to give them that sunkissed look. The image panel was layered to GKD PL Black and GKD PL Apple Green panels and added to the card base with Tombow Foam Tabs. "California Poppy" was stamped in Memento Black ink as well and popped up with a foam tab onto a GKD PL Black Scalloped circle. The card base is GKD PL Green Apple cardstock with a layer of GKD PL Black and an orange print (from my stash). I finished the card with some ribbon, a bow and rhinestones.
Now here is the good part. Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along the hop for a chance to win a HUGE grab bag of GKD stamps. The winner will be chosen on Tuesday morning (January 17).
I have kept you long enough, so I am going to send you on your way to Sharri Seffens awesome blog.
