GinaK DT Challenge Hop

 Good evening!

Tonight I'm joining several other GinaK Designers in a special  blog hop event.  This month, Gina asked us to use the stamps released on July 1st using at least one of the StampTV video techniques on our project.  I decided to make a 12x12 scrapbook page for my upcoming Christmas calendar project using a favorite photo of my daughter Ashley along with the Seeds of Kindness stamp set.

As you can see from my photos, I used several techniques on my page.  I'll list each of them with the link to the technique video so you can check them out for more information:

Project Details
Stamps: Seeds of Kindness
Ink: Memento
Cardstock: GinaK; SU 12x12; DCWV patterned papers; vellum
Other: Sewing machine; circle punches & spellbinders circle & label dies; EK Success butterfly punch; rhinestones; copics; crystal lacquer; glitter pen; polka dot embossing folder; Quikutz scallop border; SU ribbon; Corner Rounder

I don't know if you can tell on this last photo or not, but I thought I'd share a few details on it for you.  I colored the floral image with copics and then went over some of the lines with the Stardust glitter pen.  Then after it was added to the scrapbook page, I put a layer of Crystal lacquer over the entire circle focal point.  After which I set it aside to dry overnight.  It's really quite sparkly and shiny in person, but I don't believe my camera caught that very well...

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
