Always Autumn Tutorial for Gina K Designs

Happy Thursday Friends!  Today is a fun day because I am not only sharing a new Gina K/Spectrum Noir tutorial... BUT, there is a new Gina K release!  WOOHOO!  I totally ADORE this new set called Always Autumn.  It is just gorgeous.  For my card today, I am using two of the flowers and one of the sentiments from the set.  Check out how I colored my flowers...

First I stamped my images on smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I picked one of my favorite Spectrum Noir color combinations ~ GB1, GB3, CR1 & CR7.

Next, I started coloring a few petals of the flower with GB1 and then added some GB3 along the edges and in the center.

Then I added more GB1 over the top to blend the colors.  Note: I work in small areas so the inks stay wet and blend well.

Keep repeating those steps, a few petals at a time.

Next, I added some CR7 (Coral/Red), on the edge of the petals (a few at a time).

And added CR1 over the entire flower petal for a pretty peach look.

When I finished the entire flower, I added GB1 to the entire flower so a bit more yellow would pop out.

For the flower center, I used CR1, CR7, CR8, and CR11

Next, I added some orange and dark yellow Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils along the edges.

Here are my finished flowers!
Up close you can really see the different colors pop off the petals.

Stay tuned... I'll have a few more tutorials coming up next week ~ one with a background using the Spectrum Noir Markers and one for coloring pumpkins!
