Kindred Spirits

KINDRED SPIRITS
Two cards from GinaK Designs Kindred Spirit collection! Using the same stamped image I created two similar cards...changing a few of the details. Copic markers and SU watercolor pencils were used for coloring. Everything is pretty simple! The flower on the right hand side in the picture was way too big so I folded it in half! I'm not usually one for big bling! But this works here! And would be very appropriate for a younger child to give Mom this card! I just noticed I never finished the lower part of the vacuum. I laid in my color and forgot to blend it! It doesn't look too bad! I scalloped the bottom edge with SU corner rounder. The ribbon was a scrap from a store bought gift. It was too short to tie so I slipped the edge under and used adhesive to hold in place. I like the little pouf and it really adds to the overall balance. Here is a closer view of the ribbon detail.
One last picture of the second card. Tomorrow, I will have two more Kindred Spirit cards to show you! Thanks so much, I'm glad you stopped by!

Join GinaK Designs for a new stamp release party! It's all happening over on the Splitcoaststampers GinaK forum here. Sunday, April 20th from 7-10 PM central time. Tons of fun games, contests, challenges and lots of fun chat! 4 new stamp sets and new bling too!

HUGS,
