GinaK's September sketch challenge
Each month Gina K. Designs has a release party featuring the new stamp sets for the month. Here is a sketch challenge posted by Cammie.
This is the card I made based on this sketch. I used American Traditions card stock for my card base. This card stock is similar to DCWV as it is textured on both sides. I was excited to find it because I was having trouble finding a color that I liked for my base. I would have found them sooner but these were stuffed in the file with some Xmas paper pads, oops; (note to self: when organizing make sure to look through all files even though I may think I have everything in the appropriate place, but it was fun to find something that I had forgotten about kinda like a surprise gift, lol; has that ever happened to you?) Anyway, for this card I used a Gina K. Designs stamp set designed by Asela Hopkins called Flowers for Daisy. I stamped the leaf image in gold on the 12x12 sheet and then cut it in half to make the base. For the ovals, I used my Fiskars oval template to cut the shapes. I stamped and embossed the Psalms verse on Papertrey Ink's vintage cream card stock. I also used some of this card stock for the corner piece of the card. I then stamped the leaf image on Provo Craft's green paper using Versamark ink and then embossing it with clear embossing powder. To complete the look of the card, I inked up all the edges of each piece including the card base with gold ink before assembling.
