Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 124 - Spots and Stripes


Well Helloooooo to everyone

And a great big "HELLLOOOOO" to all my new followers - thank you all so much for deciding to follow me I do really, really appreciate it.

I will be posting my 100 + Followers candy over the next couple of weeks or so - all I can tell ya at the mo is that it is going to come from The Hobby House so please keep checking in every now and again 'cos I wouldn't want you to miss out.  For those fans of The Hobby House - Jill is currently updating her web with a new look and loads and loads of fabby new stuff for us to completely indulge ourselves in.

Anyway that is just far too much waffle from me.


Our challenge this week at Totally Gorjuss is Spots and Stripes and our most generous sponsor is the one and only Lili of the Valley.  To be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in their shop we want to see all your creations based on a spots and stripes theme.  As always, check out the wonderful work the DT ladies have created for you at Totally Gorjuss - they are such a talented bunch that is for sure.

Here is my card:


I know I keep saying it but one day I WILL master Photoshop and get my pictures better than this - it looks so bright but I promise you it is much more muted in real life.

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Lili of the Valley "Summer Garden Angel"
Digi Papers:  Basic Grey "Hello Luscious"

The Image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20 R30
Hair:  E49 E47 E44 E42
Dress:  RV000 RV00 R85
Flowers:  RV29 RV25 RV23 Y17
Grass, Stems & Leaves:  G85 G82 G46 G40 G24

I have edged everything with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used a Magnolia Doohickey "Bon Voyage" die with some little paper roses in the middle from Wild Orchid Crafts

I also broke out the Glamour Dust for the angels wings and used some Stardust Stickles on the paper flowers.

Here is the inside of the card where I have followed the sketch through:


And that's it as they say.  I'm going to enter this card into the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge where this week there is a fab sketch to follow from Jacque and also in Lili of the Valley's National Craft Month Challenge.

Thank you for all your lovely comments they are as always very much cherished.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
