Trio of Cards

 Hello!  Today I have 3 cards to share that I made using the same Gina K stamp set called You Make Me Smile but used different techniques for each card.  The top card was stamped on GKD Moonlit Fog CS with GKD new Amalgam Ink that works perfectly with Copic Markers, Watercolors and Colored Pencils,  I used Pencils to color the image and simply attached to a darker gray card base. 


For the second card, I stamped with the same Amalgam ink on White CS but colored the image with Copics which I favor when coloring flowers. 

I decided to use watercolor paper and Distress Oxide inks for the third card.   I stamped and water colored the image with Picked  Raspberry and Peeled Paint inks using a water brush. 
I had fun playing with new ink and stamps from Gina K that were a birthday gift from my DH.
Challenges:
Stamp TV: Monthly Mix Challenge-use gray as one of the main colors in your creation (not just an accent color).  The top card fits this challenge which used gray card stocks,
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon Says Bright and Cheerful. The second and third cards fits this challenge. 
Addicted to Stamps and More: #297  Make Your Mark. Made my Mark with Pencils, Copics, and Watercoloring.
Color Throwdown: #498 Use Peach, Dark Pink, Light Pink. Green.  The third card uses all the colors of the challenge.
Less Is More: Challenge 373 Friendship. Used a single image for clean and simple card.

It's amazing how the same stamp can be used and look so different. You are the mostest!
