Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop

It's time for another Gina K. Designs Center Stage Spotlight Team Hop and this month we are creating cards based on a sketch that I created (see below). 

You should have arrived at my blog from Linda Payne's awesome blog, but if you didn't you can go back to StampTV and start at the beginning.  


For my card I used the GKD Country Roads set that was illustrated by Theresa Momber. I stamped the image in Memento Potter's Clay ink onto some GKD PL White cardstock and then I watercolored the tree and fence with a waterbrush and a little bit of Memento Bamboo Leaves and Rich Cocoa inks. The image was layered to some GKD PL Pumpkin Spice cardstock.  The card base is also Pumpkin Spice with a layer of GKD PL Sweet Corn and print paper from the Sun Kissed Autumn patterned paper pack.

 Here is my sketch:


Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (October 30), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Now, I am going to send you to Melissa's amazing blog, where she has some more eye candy for you.

Melissa, great job on the card. It really is a nice card and can be sent to pretty much anyone, male or female. I also want to give you congrats on being the lead designer on this blog hop. Im so glad I found this site as it really helps to get my creative juices going when I cant think of a thing to make, and no ideas what so ever! That happens alot to me. lol. Too many awesome stamps to choose from as well as embellishments. So having you and your team to look up to when my mind is blank, is a great deal of help. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR IDEAS AND FOR SHARING THEM WITH US!!

Loie D said...

Love that stamp and DP. Nice job!

Sharri said...

Beautiful card Melissa! I love the fall colors and your sketch! I wish I could have joined you this month but I am hoping I can play along later this week!

Judy I, St. Louis MO said...

Awesome sketch and card. The covered bridge has quickly become one of my faves for guy cards. I never thought of using Potter's Clay for the image. I love how you've just colored part of it. Thanks for the great inspiration.

bcapen said...

I love your sketch design and love the country scene card as well.I can see this as an all season design using the sketch and scene.

Lea said...

I love the serenity of your card. It's warm and inviting and makes me want to go sit by the bridge and watch the leaves fall into the water below and swirl away. When a card can evoke that kind of feeling, you've outdone yourself!

Caroline said...

So beautiful and fall inspired. Makes me want to go outside. Thanks for the inspiration.

Barbara said...

Melissa, what a beautifully designed and colored fall card. Love it and love that sketch.
