Gina K Hop ~ Textures Incentive Set!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special blog hop featuring the new Tiny Textures incentive stamp sets from the May StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!

Tiny Textures is a fun stamp set that allows you add a splash of something fun to your scrapbook pages or will help you to make a cool stamped background to your card projects. The “Just Because” sentiment from the set is ideal to add the finishing touch to a quick, but thoughtful card!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few day after the hop.
For my project today, I used a few of the Tiny Texture images to stamp a background in the Gina K ink pads of Jelly Bean Green & Ocean Mist. Then I stamped the sentiment from the set in Blue Raspberry ink. The beautiful Flutterby Butterfly die was added as the main focus. Check out my tutorial below to see how I colored them with my Spectrum Aqua markers.




Step 1:  Die cut the Flutterby Butterfly using Spectrum Noir Watercolor Paper three times.

Step 2: Using the Peacock Blue Spectrum Aqua Marker, add color directly from the marker to the watercolor paper along the edges of the butterfly wings & the center.


Step 3: Using the Teal, randomly add color to the inside wings of the die cut. 


Step 4: Using the Aquamarine, add color near the center of the butterfly die cut.


Step 5: Next add Bud Green randomly on the wings.   Note: Leave some white space on the butterfly die cut.


Step 6: Using a waterbrush, blend the colors.


Step 7: Add glitter to the butterfly wings with Ranger Stickles.
