Gina K Designs Inspiration Day 3!


It's this release's third and final Gina K Designs inspiration blog hop, and today our amazing team is sharing projects made with the new One Free with Three, Bold and Beautiful!  

I love the gorgeous butterfly in this set, and inked it up immediately for a submission to Tina's release party glitter and flock challenge.  The card was made with a pretty stripe from Basic Grey's Life of the Party, edged with some Hero Arts adhesive lace and a pretty fleur de lis border, embellished with gold pearls. sheer ribbon and stickles.  


I had so much fun making Garden Fresh tags that I decided to make another with Bold and Beautiful.  I kept it simple, using the marker-directly-to-rubber technique, then filling in the spaces with a watercolor brush and paler inks.  I overstamped the image with linen texture and Ranger distress ink, then again with stamped off script and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, tearing and distress-inking the edges.  Both of these stamps are from Timeless Textures.  A single gold pearl graces the center of the blossom, and the back of the tag is stamped with the sentiment, praying for you!  It would be pretty attached to a potted plant to bring on a visit to someone in the hospital!

Here are today's artists:

I just noticed your followers are there. I found my disappeared if I was using something other than Google Reader and it would tip out at over 1000+ even if I was reading posts from my dashboard. I had to go to Google Reader and clear out all of the posts there to get them back. No kidding! It's weird, but it works. Now others do it too.
