Furry Friends Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

It's raining Cats and Dogs today at Gina K. Designs as we are having a blog hop featuring the new Frisky Felines and Playful Pups stamp and die bundles!

Today, I made a simple card with Copic makers and I added a little texture using some Copic marker blending solution.



I made a video using this technique and you can watch it here below:



Now it's time to join the rest of the team for today's blog hop! (If you come across any broken link, come back to my blog and click over from here.)

As you hop along the blogs, leave a comment on each one because we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky winner and we will announce the winner in the Big News category over in the forum at StampTV.com a few days after the hop.
