Good morning! Here is a VERY simple CAS card I made with "Branching Out". I am still in awe over the rainbow array of Nestabilities Gina showed in her video LOL! (and I think I have them ALL, yikes, but they just look so purty and organized in their original packaging, hee hee!) but I wanted to show a quick and easy card you can make with out any dies at all, by stamping your frame of choice from the set onto a clean white backdrop.I inked up the circle frame in pink and stamped. As an afterthought, I decided to make the branches pop a little more so I traced over them in brown, this would have looked more precise had I just gone over them with my marker BEFORE stamping, but it happens! Next I added the trumpet flowers, coloring with two darker pinks and brown directly onto the stamp. There are so many different places you can add the flowers on these branches so I just try to use an odd number and stamp them in different directions, I love how they look creeping outside the frame. The bird silhouette doesn't have an eye, this way he appears to be facing away from the viewer looking off in the distance or at another bird, but here I wanted him to connect with you (hee!) so I just added a little white dot with my Inkssentials pen for a tiny detail (I thought a rhinestone would be cute but didn't have one small enough!) and added a little shading with my brown marker again on his wing and tail feathers. Greeting is from the new Free with Three "Garden Silhouettes".
Thanks so much for all your encouraging comments from our hop the last few days I so enjoyed reading them and am very excited about all the enthusiasm for our new Gina K Designs sets! I am trying to get tip sheet wrapped up for "Branching Out" so I can post that soon.
One question that was asked from Day 2 was, did I make that sunset background for the birds on the wire or buy it? That is a sponged background I created and it is VERY simple to do, I will share a step by step as well as how to add the power lines this week!
Have a great day!
