Gina K challenge sketch cards


I'm happy to be hosting several challenges for Gina K on StampTV & SCS this week!  I wanted to share the cards & sketches with you so if you'd like to play for a chance to win some free stamps you can.  The first card is using the new set A Charmed Life illustrated by Melanie
One thing I love about stamping is trying to think outside the box while mix & matching sets - her sets tend to lend themselves to such fun that way!  I inked up the top of the wine glass in her set and masked in tulips from A Year of Flowers set.  I added a flourish punch & tiny little flowers from the charms in the set in between my two left panels that were stamped with a sentiment from the set.  I finished my card off with some gingham ribbon & brads from the Gina K Floral Frenzy kit.  The black onyx cardstock I used for layering is new by Gina K - the thickest cardstock I've ever had and a 'true' black!  I love it.   

Here is my sketch & link to the challenge on StampTV for details on how you can play along!  I hope you do play - if you use Gina K stamps on your card you get 2 entries for the drawing!  

My next card also uses the same sets to make a floating lotus flower in a water bowl.  The colors were inspired by the new digital papers Rich and Shabby made by Emily on the design team, I just love them and the sheer bloom I found at my LSS was the perfect touch for my embellishment!  The relax sentiment is from Perfectly Polished.  

Here's a close-up of the sparkle from the copic atyou spica pen on the lotus & gloss from crystal lacquer.
