GKD APRIL CSS BLOG HOP


Welcome to GKD STAMP TV's CSS ALUMNI SKETCH CHALLENGE for APRIL. This great sketch is provided by Melissa Cash. Thanks Melissa!
You should have arrived here from the very talented Joy.



I decided to use Theresa's Mombers new stamp set "Wild about you" by Gina K. Designs. I love this set!!
I cut the images out and used pop-dots for a more 3D effect.



The images were colored with Copic's. The bottom grass is a die cut and I just added some color.
The DP is "My Mind Eye and BO Bunny", the card stock is GKD.
Here is a close-up.




Be sure to check out the very creative Cheri !
Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (April 24), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!
If you get lost along the way you can get the entire list of hop participants at Stamp TV
I'm also entering this in today's challenge "Free for All" over at SCS.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week end.
