So here goes! For my first post, I am showing you a card I made for Gina K.'s Sketch Spotlight on StampTV (STVSKSP6).
Here is the sketch Gina gave us:
Here is my card:
I used All Spruced Up for my card base and Cranberry Tart for the layering. I stamped the bird from Asela's Winter Wings set and colored it with Copic markers. I added Glossy Accents to the berries and a little Liquid Applique to the branches for a snow effect. The patterned paper is from the K & Co. Glad Tidings Die Cut Cardmaking Pad. The image panel and mats were cut out with Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities. The stamp set and cardstock are available from Gina K. Designs.
So that is it for my first post! Thank you for visiting my new blog! I hope you will come back and visit again sometime soon!
