Gina K Designs release party challenge cards

My current hope is that someday owning copics will mean i can do skin tone coloring... (however i did not order things to shade with the ones i have ) ~ you can see this is a dangerous thing, one copic leads to 3 which leads to nearly an hundred... and the realization that you are not quite "getting it" to what you had in mind when you started out... This one was done for Theresa's sketch challenge, the Hands and sentiment are from the GKD set Hand in Hand ( don't think i have used these before, and i bought this set in like Jan 09) because of the skin tone issues mainly... the doily is from the Nana's needlework set and heat embossed with Zing powder ( when it was dry it was an perfect shade match for the bazzill but, melting it brightened it up). this particular card is 5X7 in real life. the buttons are vintage and have some ecru embroidery floss through the centers. The printed paper is from TPC studios "ancestral teal brocade" ( its double sided so this is both sides off the same sheet) the blue bazzill came to me as an totally "out of the blue" RAK from Leibetty { Thanks Leigh Anne!!!} it was just one of those things, I had opened her box right before i headed up stairs to make these cards so it was totally perfect timing. Now this was something fun ( messy ) but fun, this butterfly is from the Hope is Faith set (from GKD) and its stamped with brown stazon on an transparency sheet. Interesting thing, with all my sinuses out of whack i could not smell the ink at all ( which was really good ) on a good day it gives me an headache. I cut it out and added yellow stickles to the back then layered that to a piece of speckletone oatmeal coversheet and then when i ran it through the Xyron to cover the back with glue most the stickles squirted out the edges so, its not as eye popping yellow as it started out as. This one was done for Lee's color combo challenge, Turquoise, Lemon drops & one Neutral. It's 5 inches square in real life. the blue and yellow cardstocks are bazzill. the yellow lace and blue trim are vintage. the mini brads and pearls are from recollections. The sentiments from the su set called whimsical words and done with versafine on oatmeal and the edges of the Labels 10 die were inked with colorbox robins egg pigment. the reality is i really don't like this card as an "whole" but, do like bits and pieces of it.
