Ink blended florals (with Gina K designs)

Hey y’all! I’m back 🙂 needed a little break from social media, its been a little mentally draining being on there. I recently heard someone say ‘don’t consume but create content’, and that’s what I’ve decided I’m going to do going forward!

I might not have been sharing, but I have been creating and coloring A LOT! It’s literally the only productive thing that I can do while pumping (sorry TMI), and it’s been helping me stay sane, COVID and all. Enough about that, let’s get back to the cards I came on here to share!

I made these two cards using only the contents of the Gina K designs Nature’s Touch card kit from their July release. I love using kits to make cards as I don’t get overwhelmed with products! My last card with this set was watercolored, so this time I figured I would share an easier way to color the images, especially if you are mass producing cards.

To make these cards I started by stamping the images from the floral stamp set on heavy weight white card stock. Then using my Taylored Expression blending brushes I ‘colored’ all the images using 2 colors (listed below), then I die cut them. Next I used the stencil from the kit to add some depth to an A2 size card base. For the sentiment, I first used VersaMark Watermark Ink Pad and black embossing powder, but that got messy, so on the second card I used VersaFine ink (onxy black) along with clear embossing powder for a much cleaner finish. Finally I adhered the diecuts to the card front using both liquid adhesive and foam tape to add some dimension.
