Popping in for a quick post. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday. :)
I wanted to share this birthday card I made for my friend Kathy, she is my crafty buddy at work and we have such good fun giving each other ideas and enabling each other. She always says I get her in to trouble because I always have too many cute things to share. Well I say sharing is caring and we just laugh about it. I wanted to give her a different kind of card with a stamp she's never seen before. I personally have never inked one up, but I have to say, I loved coloring this one. I was really tempted to keep her for myself! But I didn't want to stay up all night to color something else.
This is my very first Gorjuss Girl that I inked up and colored. I love how she turned out. I used my favorite colors, blues and greens with a touch of brown. I know, that I've never really used this color combo, but these are three of my favorite colors. I also did a simple background of clouds and a little bit of green around her feet to represent grass. I believe this is a gatefold card, and one that I sorta struggled with as you can see by the bow. I think I tied it 20x before I got this result. It's still not one that I love but it's the last one that looked the best. The dp worked perfectly with my color scheme and I didn't need too many more embellies except for the sweet sentiment, (another AmyR).
Let's take a peek of the inside of the card. Sorry the photo is blurry! I also wiped out my message to her. I forgot to take a picture before writing in it. The sentiment is of course another AmyR sentiment, and there is that Gorjuss girl again. :)
I think this counts in the weekly challenge at Mad for Markers which is favorite Copic color combos. It will be fun to play in a challenge.
Alrighty, that's all I have for today. I'm hoping to share some other projects I've been working on, and especially wanted to share my wonderful birthday cards and goodies I received from some really lovely friends and family. We shall see how the next few days and nights go. Have a lovely Tuesday night my friends!
