Gorjuss Ladybird

Good evening everyone, I hope you're having a fun time reading blogs and being inspired!

I just popped in to share this card I finished tonight with you all.  And hopefully there'll be a few more posts because the weekend has arrived, yay!

This card features a Santoro Gorjuss girl image from the stamp set Gorjuss Ladybird.  And fittingly enough, I've included a Stampin Up punch and stamp combo Four Frames with the Decorative Label punch (which actually has a bird in the image!)

The cardstocks I used are SU's Elegant Eggplant and a pinky purple cardstock from my stash.  The image was coloured using Tim Holtz distress markers and a SU blender pen on Strathmore watercolour paper.  (I think I did a pretty close match to the image on the stampset).

The flowers are also from my stash and have pearls in the centres.  Oh and I also used another SU punch for the scalloped parts on the sides of the main image.  I should also add that the white background behind her has been dry embossed with SU folder called Happy Heart.


I hope you enjoyed viewing my card, thanks for stopping by!
Happy crafting to you!
Cheers

    I don't have any Gorjuss stamps as yet, but they're on my wish-list - like a lot of other things!!

    1. Thank you Liz! I love them too. That string she's standing on was from the stamp packet too.

    1. Thanks Marcelle! As soon as I opened my SU order and saw that elegant eggplant cardstock I knew I had to do a gorjuss girl with it. I was so stoked when I found a matching pinkish cardstock for my already coloured image, that was pure luck!
