Inspiration Hop Day 2: Elegant Florals 2

Good morning!The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!As you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Today I have a project where I used three of the images from Theresa's set Elegant Florals 2, stamped over the three windows in Triple Play Frame and colored for a spotlight effect.   First stamp the frame, then add the flowers one a time over each circle, lining it up so the stem is at the bottom border and the most interesting part of the floral image goes right over that round window, love how that works out! I stamped the flowers and frame in Gina K. Moonlit Fog ink to make the outlines more subtle, but didn't bother to mask because I thought seeing the outlines intersecting through the pans added a lot of interest, almost like a garden behind a multi-paned window.  Coloring in just what's inside each circle really makes each pop and is almost like looking through the lens of a magnifying glass.  I colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers PS1, PL3, PP5, CG4, CG3, and then used the HB1 to color the "belly band pane" behind the circles. I used GG2 to color all the borders.  Greeting is stamped in Black Onyx.  Single layer card on Gina K. Pure Luxury Base Weight White!  No cutting or adhesive, embellishments needed. :) Love it!
