{Gina K Inspiration Hop} Delicate Damask

** This is my second post today.  For my Stamp Simply post, please scroll down!! **


Hi again!!!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.


Today we're featuring Beth's new set Delicate Damask.  Sooooo pretty and elegant!  Here's my card...


I hand cut a banner out of watercolor paper for my focal layer and stamped one of the smaller damask stamps in Versamark ink, then embossed it in white.  When it had a chance to set, I used my Distress Markers and scribbled some ink on an acrylic block.  Then I used a small wet paintbrush to pick up the color which I washed over the embossed image.  I love the soft color!

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Charcoal Brown and then matted my banner on some Innocent Pink cardstock.  The pretty yellow gingham is from the Sunshiney Day paper pack and the pink layer is embossed with the Wire Fence embossing folder.


Here's the list if you're just getting started... otherwise, you can jump right over to the shop to check out the stamps and supplies you saw on today's hop! :)
