Gina K Designs inspirational hop day three

 Welcome!
Today I have a card to share from Gina K’s newest release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team today  –  And make sure to check out all the new stamps on the All New page!!


We are using the newest free with three set Bold & Beautiful.  I have had some Faber Castell Gelatos sitting here waiting to be played with and these bold lined images seemed like the perfect time to give them a try!  
I colored all over the stamp with the yellow, orange, and red ones.  I then wet the stamp a bit with a paint brush.  I think they are a bit like the watercolor crayons, both of which I am not yet all that skilled at using!   ;) 




  thanks for stopping by!!
Make sure to check out the rest of the team today as well!!
