To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.
First up we have Sophie Pig by Beth Silaika. With her heart ears and hooves and clever puns, this little porker is going to get in lots of trouble, I know it!
Just pigcause!( Look how nicely she cleaned up from before!) Stamp the umbrella first and then mask it to add the pig. I used some of the hearts to stamp some rain falling into the puddle. I used the same hearts and reverse masked them onto the umbrella to make the print. Image is colored with Spectrum Noir DR1, DR6, PP2, PP4, CR2, CR3, TB2, and TB3. Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury Innocent Pink, Black Onyx, White and Wild Wisteria.
Roses are stamped in GKD Sweet Corn, Red Hot, and Cherry Red, eucalyptus from Fill it With Flowers is stamped and stamped off in Grass Green, and leaves are stamped in Applemint and Grass Green. Some little details: I used a brown pen to draw the crosshatching for texture like burlap. I also used a craft knife to cut above and below the stamped bow to thread through the bakers twine for the tag. Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx, and Kraft.
Next, Claire’s Fine Feathers set is a collection of stunning feathers that are perfect focal images to create a message of inspiration, hope, thanks and more!
Here I used some of the new Tiny Textures incentive set images to give a real artsy feel to the Black Onyx stamped leaves and sentiment. Ink pads are GKD Bahama Blue, Ocean Mist, Sweet Mango, and finally some Tomato Soup which I rolled onto the edges of the Sweet Mango inked splatter before stamping. Having just that little variation in the color of the dots adds a punch!
We are so very blessed to have Claire’s illustrating and designing talents to our Gina K. team!
