Welcome to Day 3 of the Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop for their newest release! The card I’m sharing today is all about scene building. I have never felt super confident with my scene building skills. But we all have to start somewhere, right?
The new Nautical Stamp set and coordinating dies are just so sweet and simple and I knew they would be easier for me to color with my alcohol markers.
In my tutorial today, I’ll walk you through my entire process when trying to build a scene. I’m still learning about scene building, and I make a few mistakes along the way, but the finished card turned out pretty darned cute!
Here is my tutorial:

Andrea Robert says
I have a question! I was finally able to order the Gina K Blending brush set (YAY!). Now I’m wondering about using them with different brands or types of ink. I know you keep yours color coded and don’t wash them often, simply cleaning them off, which is great, but what if you only have one set of brushes for ALL of your inks? Would you wash the “pink brush” after using it on a pink dye ink, before using it on a Distress Oxide pink? Or would it be enough to clean it off on paper first, and then wash it after the project is completed? What about pigment inks?
I am SO excited to be getting them in….can’t wait!!! thanks!
