Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 125 - Swirly Whirly

Hello Everyone

I hope you are all well and for those of you residing in the UK I hope you have soaked-up the lovely weather we have had this week!

Without further ado, let's get straight onto this week's challenger over at Totally Gorjuss which is 'Swirly Whirly'.  Now I have to admit, this is a challenge that I really struggled with but managed to get a few swirls and whirls on my card.

This week's sponsor is Meyer Imports; if you're in to a bit of bling and glitter then this is the place to go.  As always make sure you check out the stunning creations the lovely DT ladies over at Totally Gorjuss have made for your inspiration.

Here is the card I created:

My Sister asked if I would make a card for a lady who is just about to turn 80 and I just had to use this stunning Mo Manning stamp - she is so cooool!

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Mo Manning "Mammu"
Sentiment Stamp:  Lili of the Valley
Papers:  First Edition "Love Letters"
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug "D'Vine Swirl"

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E00 R20 R30
Hair:  C5 C3 C1 C0
Jumper:  R85 R83 R81
Skirt:  E42 E41 E40
Shoes:  E37 E35 E34

I have edge the papers with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.

And that is that as they say.

Hope you all have a fab weekend whatever you are doing.

I have had this image for ages and yet to color it and now I am going to dig it out and do so...this is have inspired me!

Elaine said...

Wow stunning work Hazel I love the way you craft , I saw you commenting around and found you via Susan, I have just started blogging 2 months ago and have been searching for inspiration , there is oodles of it everywhere.
I love your blog I have just started colouring using promarkers but looking at the colours and richness of colour on your cards, then I should have opted for copics.
I also like how you expain what colours you use for each, its so impotant when people like me are starting out.
If you dont mind I will enter your candy and I am definatley following your blog for inspiration.
Thank you Hazel Hugs Elaine

Beautiful!! Love this!! I see we also share a love for Mo's images! My favorite MuMu image is the one of her on the bicycle - it's one I requested Mo to draw so it's really special to me. :)
