Come to the Dark Side

Dear Ones~
This time over at the Mod Squad it's my turn to host. I have chosen to do some coloring on dark card stock. You can use black, dark brown, or any other dark color, and then use colored pencils or other color mediums such as chalk so that your image will show up. You could also use bleach to lighten the image and then color it with markers. Watch a video Gina did showing this technique HERE.


Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs along with informative and creative crafting videos.Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs.
Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, their online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, social network for paper crafters and more! Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world.

Here's my card:
 For this card I used a Gina K Designs stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger called Stately Flowers 11. The greeting is from the GKD stamp set called You Get Me. The base card stock is GKD Tranquil Teal, with GKD Gold Metallic Card Stock used as a mat. The image was stamped with Versamark on GKD Black Onyx Card Stock and gold heat embossed with GKD Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.
And here's another card:
For this card I used the GKD Rose Bouquet Stamp set and Plum Punch Card Stock for the base. The greeting is from that same You Get Me stamp set.

 Glad you stopped by, and don't forget to head on over to The Mod Squad Challenge and play along. You could win the prize! I can't wait to see your wonderful creations, and I adore your comments!
