Well, thought I'd ink up another 1 of my Gorjuss girls (before the 2nd set arrives!) as I've been wanting to try and make something a bit 'edgier' and darker with them for a while now and thought this would be a good time to try. It's not quite turned out how I wanted but it was fun trying!
I've used the sketch (on its side) over on Fri sketchers and as you can see, lots of tearing, sanding and distressing going on all over the card! Base card is a dark chocolate but looks black in photo.
- Images: Gorjuss girl from the first set over at Funky Kits (this 1 is my favourite fom this set). 'you Rock' sentiment from an Inkadinkado set. The flourish edges are from an Autumn leaves set and have embossed that either side of the base card (see better if you click on photo)
- Colouring: Copics on image, distress inks around edges
- DP: DCWV rockstar mat stack - loved the flocked heart on the green piece so much didn't want to cover it so cut around it and moved to the top and then cut around her legs to place it over that IYKWIM!
- Others: labels four nestie to cut out image, embossing folder on Coredinations cardstock which I then sanded and tore for the various bits. EK retro flower punch, various gems, blingy heart ribbon slider, and some cord
Got some of the new slimline EK success edger punches yesterday - love them! Will have to have a play and take some piccies to show you the designs later and how they compare next to the MS and fiskars punches. Well and truly fell off the old stash diet this month. Think I'm a bit of a bulimic when it comes to stash - time for a purge soon I think!
Have a good day whatever you're doing. I'm hoping it'll be sunny today then I can go sit in the garden and finish reading Eclipse (half way through) - enjoying that more than New Moon.
