Gina K Designs April Blog Hop Day 3

Today we are featuring What's the Dirt by Gina K. I used the colors from Gina's Color Challenge over at Stamp TV, white, lemon, and pink.  To do the shading behind the image, I just cut out a circle template, laid it on the card, and sponged.  I do like the looks of these types of cards.  AND, are ya noticing the copic coloring???  Oh I am liking the way I am FINALLY getting the "light source" [with these images anyway :)]
That is it for me for the DT's Gina K Blog Hop.  I had fun making samples for you, and I hope I have inspired you in some way.  Now, get over to the store and shop till you drop - or your fingers fall off from punching "select" - :)
Thanks for stopping by~
 Here are the other DT's:

Sharon Harnist said...

Yep, you are getting the hang of the shading and light source -- great job!

Sue said...

Vicki, you've definitely got the "light source" right. This card looks fantastic. I especially love the fact that you've coloured it twice (beautifully) & cut it out & popped it up. It's also finished off so well with that yellow ribbon.
