Gina K Sneak Peek – Tropical Windows!

Today I bring you a sample with the newest *Buy 3 Get 1 FREE* set from Gina K.  This set is really fantastic!  And check this out – I embossed!  I know – it doesn’t happen very often, so enjoy it!  No seriously, it’s a fantastic set that has a lot of options for the two main images.  Today’s sample shows what a little glossy cardstock and some black embossing powder can do for you…..but I’ve got another sample ready to go for the Release Party that shows a whole different look!

Be sure to stop by Gina’s release party at SCS.  She has lots of contests, prizes, and chatter – they are always fast moving and a lot of fun.  You just never know what will get discussed! 😉  You can find the thread for the party {HERE}.

And to start off – I thought I’d show how I did the sponging on this image.  I first stamped the image in versamark on glossy cardstock.  Then I sprinkled black embossing powder on it and heat set it.   I only wanted the sponged color inside the image frame, so I used post-it notes to block off the area outside the frame.  So it looked like this before I sponged:


After placing post-its all the way around the image frame, I sponged both Ruby Red and Real Red inks on the image.  Then I wiped it off with a kleenex and removed the post-its.  Because I printed the Bright Summer Grunge digital paper on glossy brochure/flyer paper from Staples – it had a nice sheen to it, just like the glossy cardstock the image is on.  Voila!

*See that wide stitched grosgrain on the card?  I got that from a craft thing the kids were at – I saw it and snatched a piece for me to use later, lol!*
