Gorjuss Girls


Two cards to share tonight.... both with new Gorjuss Girl stamps from Docrafts.

First up....
Gorjuss Girl


.....this beautiful girl standing on some books... however it is rather large ~over 6 inches  tall which meant she didn't fit onto my card front,  I had to trim the top and some of the books off the bottom.  I stamped and then coloured with Copics.  Added the trim down the side and layered onto some Creative Imaginations PP.  I stamped the photo corners onto the same card as the trim and cut them out.  The book plate is from the set as well and I coloured with Copics and some distress ink   Sentiment is a Hastings Rubber Stamps one,   Still need to practise colouring black hair.  Been watching some You Tube videos.  

And this second one......

   
.... which I just finished and try to photograph under the artificial light ( not very good) The colours are way too greeny yellow.  Will definitely take a photo in the morning.  EDITED: replace with a decent photo
The hair colouring on this one is a bit better.  Still lots of room to improve!.  Happy though with the way I managed the shading on her dress.  The PP is from My Minds Eye ~ Portobello Road~ with some added stamping and distressing.  The ribbon is hand dyed ( not sure what colour I used as it was done some time ago) The fence is a Spellbinders De-lite sponged with Distress inks.
All in all very happy with my new stamps.  I'm sure you'll see a few more samples with these delightful girls.

We are off again this weekend.... This time down to Te Puke ( around 3hrs south east from home) to visit with our friends who own a Kiwifruit orchard.  Hoping the nice weather continues.

Thanks for stopping by.  Much appreciated that you take the time to visit.

Your coloring is very nice, Dawn! I think the hair would be my downfall. Love the blue and green of the second card.

Dawn, I am loving your Gorjuss images!! I am struggling a bit with hair (I will post one tomorrow on my blog with red hair!) And fabric defeats me!! I know it's all about practice!! I hadn't known about Gorjuss images until a couple of weeks ago and nnow I want them all! It never ends!! So happy to see someone else using them, too.
