Gina K Design December Preview Day 2!!

Hey ya'll! Welcome back to day two of our previews for this month....wasnt last night's awesome too?! I was so blown away by such gorgeous creations! And tonight, we have two more sets to preview for you. Up first is Theresa Momber's newest set called The Giving Tree. This is what I have done with it for tonight:




I decided to show a tag I made with it. I love making tags and this came together very quickly. I think trying to photograph it took longer than making...its so sparkly IRL! Used alot of distress inks and distress paint on it too, then misted with some shimmer mists! LOVe how sparkly it is and cant show you! LOL! Well, take my word for it...it's pretty in the sun! LOL!

Ok, next up is Asela Hopkin's newest set called Nesting. Here is my creation with this set for tonight:



I was going for a snow owl look! He is colored with a white prisma pencil, then I used my white gel pen on him in spots too to make him more white. I love coloring on kraft...and love how this turned out actually!

Ok, ready for more awesomeness tonight? Here ya go!
