Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss 'Runaway

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Good morning everyone! Sorry for my late Sugar Nellie post, but you know what it's like.....sometimes life just gets in the way of our crafting :(  But I'm here now, and hopefully my card will brighten up your cold, grey wintery day.
So for my Design Team card I decided to use one of the gorgeous Gorjuss girl stamps called 'Runaway', I love this stamp, it's so pretty and I've been dying to use it for ages. I wanted to create a dreaming feel so I softened up the background with a mixture of Copic pens and blending solution, and I really like how it turned out. As the image is so large I decided to keep the rest of the card CAS.
This stamp and lots of other Gorjuss stamps are available to buy from Funkykits.
Here's What I Did
Firstly I matted an A5 card base with delicate pink patterned paper. Next I stamped the large image onto some colouring cardstock and created the background using a mixture of different colour Copic pens and blending solution - this was used to soften the look. The rest of the image was coloured using the same pens as before but more intensely. The finished image was mounted onto some pink card, along with 3 die cut flourishes to create a frame.

The image and frame was added to the card base using foam pads to add dimension. To finish off I added a few sequins and some clear glitter to the horse.
