Gorjuss 2000 Party - Stamp Launch

Welcome To Our Gorjuss Party!!

To celebrate the launch of the brand new Gorjuss stamp sets, Sugar Nellie is having a competition over on the Sugar Nellie blog. To enter simply make a card/project using ANY of the Gorjuss stamps - it can be made using one of the new stamps or one you already have in your stash. However, if you don't have any of the Gorjuss stamps at all or would like to use one of the new stamp sets you can buy them from Funkykits (home of Sugar Nellie) - simply click onto the banner below:

To get you in the 'gorjuss' mood I've created this little cutie for my DT card. The stamp is called 'I Found My Family In A Book' and she's available to buy from Funkykits. The stamp sets are all very deeply etched and stamp beautifully, plus the Gorjuss girls are always a generous size which is perfect for colouring. To colour my image I used Derwent Inktense (watercolour) pencils and a few Copic pens.

Here's What I Did
I started with a 5" x 7" white card base which I matted with deep pink card. I stamped my image onto watercolour card and used Inktense (watercolour) pencils to colour it in with. I stamped the paper doll section of the girl and her book onto an old book page and coloured with Copic pens to give an aged look, these were then cut out and glued into place on the main image.

The completed topper was added to the card base along with a matching deep pink strip that I matted with the same book paper as before. To finish off I added a red felt flower and some sequins.
