Video: Introducing Stately Flowers 10

Hello! Today I'm introducing my newest set Stately Flowers 10 and how to make a gorgeous single layer card with ANY of the flowers from the Stately series and this new vintage seed packet image, perfectly sized for focal points on your A2 sized cards, shakers, and more!  I also show you how to reverse mask with it and simple coloring for the dogwood with alcohol markers. Please enjoy! And watch me totally confound myself over a marker!!

Sorry again for the confusion over the color in the video!! After much searching it IS supposed to be PP1, just looks much darker on the Ivory cardstock, versus the white I used for the first sample and photo (doh!) It's all good!

Oh! Two things I forgot, I'll blame it on the marker! One is to stamp the large dogwood inside in green like I did on the sample, see in the photo? The other is the single tiny dogwood flower is perfect for stamping on the back of your card like a little logo when you sign your name! :) Ill have to do that in the next video.

Stately Flowers 10 is available for purchase this Thursday, July 29th , 7PM Central at www.ginakdesigns.com !
