Gina K CSS for August Challenge

It's that time and the lovely Gina K. has issued this month's CSS challenge. The challenge this month is to pick one of her Stamp TV videos and make a project using the technique. I'm so psyched I got to play this month. How cool would it be to make the CSS design team and be Gina's guest designer for August!

I picked the spotlighting technique for my card. This fabulous technique can be seen HERE. You have to check out Gina's video's they are really awesome. Even if you are familiar with the technique she shows you, I promise you will still want to watch. She does an amazing job with all the videos.

For this technique I decided to use the set called Pretty as a Peacock. I decided to use the peacock stamped in black and accent his lovely feathers.

Here is what I came up with:

here is a closeup of her feathers, I used glitter spica pens.

I used Gina K Passionate Pink paper and my green I believe was SU. The buttons are from the Gina K, I believe called Spring Mix. My pattern paper is DeLovely by Cosmo Cricket.

Well fingers crossed! Hey you never know!

Thanks for stopping by!

Till later!
