Gina K. Lean On Me Hop


lean on me hop 

I got my new Gina K. stamps!!  I was so bummed I was not able to participate in last month’s release because of moving preparations and now discovered I won’t be able to this month again because we definitely have a move date of September 25th!  I promise to be ready to go for October’s release because I really miss being a part!  Since I got my new stamps, though I am able to participate in this blog hop! 

Lean On Me {which comes with a free card kit} is such a beautiful collection of solid flowers and encouraging sentiments that I was looking forward to using one of my favorite techniques; stamping with white pigment ink on kraft cardstock and coloring with colored pencils over it.  I used this week’s color combo in the challenges at StampTV because it is so striking: yellow, brown, kraft and red.  Isn’t it a gorgeous combination?  I have to admit I may not have chosen these colors together without Janice’s idea!!  Have you ever played in the challenges over there?  It’s free to become a member and you have one week to upload your project in order to be eligible to win some GKD stamps (if you use GKD stamps in your creation, you get 2 entries in the drawing!).  The cardstock colors I used are: Sweet Corn, Red Hot, Chocolate Brown and Kraft. I also used some ribbon from the Autumn assortment and copper nail heads for a simple embellishment.  I also sponged around my focal image with tea dye distress ink.
