Teal, Green and Pink Sitting Gorjuss Girl and By The Cute and Girly Challenge

Here is another of my Copic coloured cards - I'm very proud of this one and it uses one of my favourite colour combinations (at least for this week!)

I am also entering it into the By The Cute and Girly blog challenge (a new one for me) and their current monthly challenge is 'Spring Is In The Air'.

I started by stamping the Sitting Gorjuss Girl image from Sugar Nellie using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using my Copic sketch markers.
  • Hair: E02, E07, YR02
  • Face: E00, E02, E11, R20
  • Dress: BG11, BG13, BG49
  • Socks: YG11, YG17
  • Highlights: N1 (not as noticeable in the picture as in real life)
  • Shadows: N3, N5
The image was then cut out using the Nestabilities Label 3 die and matted onto a teal blue panel.
A panel was created using two co-ordinating papers from the Making Memories Funky Vintage Ruby Collection paper pad and a strip of green paper, and a length of white twill ribbon was attached across this, having been knotted first.
Three Papermania paper flowers were colour tinted with the Copic markers* and attached to the bottom corner of the card. Small self-adhesive pearls were then attached to their centres.
The sentiment tag, from Stamps Away, was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured using the Copics.
  • Tag: BG11, BG13, BG49
A hole was created in the top of the tag and white embroidery thread was threaded through and attached between the flowers.
* I don't recommend this as the paper tends to fluff up and get stuck to the nib of the pen!!!

I love teal and green as a colour combo too and you have made a gorjuss card, Kathleen. Great layout and the little flowers and tag really finish it off! Warmest wishes, Lesley
