Gorgeous Gorjuss Girl!

.....she is, isn't she?

Huge thanks to Alex for the image - I wasn't as quick off the mark as I should've been for these!!

I really enjoyed making this card - and as soon as I saw the image I knew I wanted to do a pink & black theme.

Image coloured with Watercolour pencils - I was quite pleased with her hair, although I wanted her dress more pink! .......are we ever satisfied?
In my last post I mentioned waiting to 'upgrade' my colouring medium and I've had a few queries as to what I meant. I'm seeing fantastic results in blogland with pens such as Copics, so am 'needing' them now!

The backing papers are from DCWV 'Glitter Stack'. Letters and numbers cut with 'Hippy Chick', on my Cuttlebug with Funky Foam - LOVE FF!!!!! FF also used with Nestie for the frame. Anita's 3d Gloss used over image.
(Customer asked for 'Granddaughter' to spelt with only one 'd' so I had to adapt a peel off!)

I've got a few more Gorjuss girls to work expect more over the next few days!


  1. Stunning card Carol. I love the pink/black combo and the layout is fab. I love my Gorguss girls and am waiting with baited breathe for the next release.

  5. Definitely a 'Gorjuss' card Carol. I love the colour scheme and the lettering. I must try out funky foam in my bug, it looks like it comes out great. I love these stamps too, just can't really afford a whole set, I'll have to wait until Funkykits sell them separately. Mind you, just bought 3 more Happy Hoppers though, yikes!! lol

  6. This is Gorjuss Carol! Love the colour scheme, and the soft look you got with watercolour pencils!

    I do not have the time to make as many cards as I would like...but I love these stamps! they are soooo scrummy.

    Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing your new ones soon. shall pop by again in a couple of days.
    Love Lisa.xx
