I'm baaaack, did you miss me? (Did you even notice I was gone? LOL!) I had to take a couple days off from blogging to stamp for our new release this Thursday, sneak peeks start tomorrow! But this DP is an EARLY peek of a new digital paper Gina K Designs is releasing this week, this time from... Emily Giovanni!! You are going to die when you see some of the other papers in this pack, they are awesome! (and have even more digital potential, can't wait to show you how I've been playing with them !!) I figured it was okay to share since Carolyn already revealed it in this week's Stamp TV Color Challenge !! ( so I'm playing the color challenge with it, too hee hee!) Oh, hey look at that, it also works for this past week's Technique Challenge from Gina: OMS and Pencils, (be sure to watch this video, I learned about turnign the the stump aa file to get a good point, love that tip!!) I used the Koh-i-Noors* on my lilies from "A Year of Flowers" to make thm look like Stargazers. The deep and light shades of pink and red in them are perfect with this striped paper, I just love the texture this paterned paper has, like cloth.
I had to do a little masking to get the flowers and leaves arranged this way, and then cut around the flowers so they'd hang off the mat's edge partly to give it interest but also to make the mat smaller so you could see more of that beautiful patterned paper. Base and ribbon is SU! regal Rose. (The little vase I drew myself, you like? )
I am SO excited about this release, is it Tuesday yet?? Check back tonight at midnight for the first sneak peek! (and mark you calendars for our Gina K release party this Thursday night, March 12th, 7 PM CST, in our Splitcoast forum!)
*I am very excited to report (although feel a little silly doing so) the Koh-i-Noors DO contain a RED pencil LOL! If you've looked at the product pic or have the pencils, it looks like there are three shades of pink but no red! And being the "red person" that I am, although I still love the pencils, always wondered about that glaring color omission! ;) Well, what do you know, when I sat down to color these, found one of those pinks IS red, the barrel of the pencil is just much pinker that the pencil's true color (If you already knew this, pat yourself on the back) :) I think I've had them for 9 months now and I just figured it out, so be sure to try ALL your supplies, you never know what you'll learn! :)
