Gina K Designs | Delightful Dogwood

Hi crafty friends

As a monthly guest designer for Gina K designs (which I am thrilled about!) I get sent a stamp and sometimes co-ordinating dies to play with ahead of the release. Unfortunately, I didn't receive Julys in time for the release but as soon as I did I designed these two beauties with the Delightful Dogwood Stamp Set.

I did a bit of research for this one as I didn't know what colour Dogwood would be. If I did my research correctly, I believe that the pink is really the leaves that turn this colour? Im still trying to get my head around that! Haha.

The pictures I found helped with inspiration for my colour choices. And yes, I researched the Cardinal too. In fact, I am impressed I remembered it is a Cardinal from my childhood days. I was and still are interested in nature and when I was a child I would make scrapbooks of birds, flowers and animals to escape the world around me.

So, this colour choice depicts the female Cardinal. Are you impressed?

The reason I chose the female colour choice was because it would coordinate with the pink Dogwood and the blue background better. The male is primarily red and that would not have worked so well, I don't think.

For the colours I used Copic marker listed below:

Dogwood: RV 10, RV 13, G21 & G94

Cardinal: !01, W02, W03, E30, E31 & R37

I hope you check out Gina K's July release, as usual there are a great mixture of stamp, dies and stencils to choose from.

Until next time.....
