Gina K Designs - Preview Day Four




Today I am sharing a card I made using the Free With Three set, Lazy Days of Summer. What a fun summer set. I chose to use the three ocean/beach themed images. I colored each with Prismacolor colored pencils, baby oil, and blending stumps. I kept the layout and layers for this one very simple. That beautiful ribbon is from the new Eclectic Summer Kit. And so are the little silver brads. I added dashes with my white gel pen to make the main panel pop.

This is the final day of Previews. Please join the Pre-Release Party tonight in Gina K Designs forum from 7 - 10 pm CST. Lots of chatting, plenty of previews and fun challenges!

And many of you asked for a tutorial for the basket. I will be sharing that in the next few days.

Now stop by the following blogs for more previews using Lazy Days of Summer.
