This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Lilac Up, Up and Away Gorjuss Girl

This is my entry to this week's Simon Says blog challenge, which has a theme of 'Sing It Baby'.

Now, apparently, Nancy Sinatra sang 'Up, Up & Away' so this seems perfect!!

The Up, Up and Away Gorjuss Girl image, from Sugar Nellie, was stamped (at Julie's) using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured using Copic Sketch markers:
  • Hair: Y08, Y17, YR02, E41
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R20
  • Balloon: B41, BV00
  • Dress: B41, BV00, R20, YR02
  • Socks: YG11, R20, YR02
  • Outline: BG11
The image was cut out and the corners rounded using the large XCut corner rounder punch. The image was matted onto lilac card and the sentiment was added using the Doodlebug Beetle Black Simply Sweet alphabet rub-ons.

Three panels were cut form the lilac, pink and green botanical flourish paper from the DCWV Once Upon A Time mat stack and matted onto the lilac card.

The 'Birthday Wish' circle sentiment was stamped onto white card using the Onyx Black ink and coloured using the Copic markers
  • Circle Sentiment: BV00, B41
A square was cut from the lilac card and the corners rounded with the XCut punch. Holes were punched in the bottom of the image panel and in the top of the square. Small lilac Papermania eyelets were set in the holes and white organza ribbon was threaded through creating a dangling sentiment panel.

The image panel was matted over the three panels and Anita's 3D Gloss was added over the balloon, dress stars and circle sentiment.
