Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 132 - Charmed

Good Day to You All

I hope you have had a good week.  It's nice to see the weather has improved a little bit here - not so much rain and a tiny bit warmer.

Another great big "HELLO" to my new followers - thank you for following me I really do appreciate it. 

And now for something a little different .....


This week's challenge over at Totally Gorjuss is "Charmed". 

Our lovely sponsor this week is Heather's Hobbie Haven so to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in their store make sure you pop on over to the Totally Gorjuss site, add your name and link and you're in.  Don't forget to check out the great creations the lovely DT ladies have made for you this week.

Here is the card I created:


You can interpret the charmed theme however you want - I've gone along the lines of the boy is trying to "Charm" his lovely girl - a little tenuous I know and just in case you think I've completely gone bonkers you will see that I have added a little charm underneath the flowers!

I decided I wanted to try a different colour combination this week - what do you think?

The recipe for the card is:

Papers:  My Minds Eye "Stella Rose Hattie"
Digi Stamp:  Make It Crafty "Geeky Love"
Postage Stamp:  Whimsy Everyday Mini Postage Stamp Sentiments from The Hobby House
Charm & Pearls:  The Hobby House

Image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20 R30
Girl's Hair:  E35 E33 E31
Boys Hair & Shoes:  E29 E27 E25 E23 E41 E40
Girls Jumper & Shoes:  BG78 BG75 BG72 E41 E40
Girls Skirt & Boys Jumper:  YR24 YR23 YR21 E41 E40
Boys Jeans:  B97 B95 B93
Shading:  W5 W3 W1

I have edged everything with Faded Jeans Distress Inks.

Here is a picture of the inside of the card where I follow the sketch through:


And there you have it.

I hope you can come and join us - I just love looking at everyone's wonderful creations they give me such inspiration.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look and for all your comments.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.


Toodle Pip.

Good morning Hazel :)
Gorgeous card..your colouring is an amazing match for the papers! I love those papers and have used them myself but the distress inks colours aren't much of a match for the mustardy colour.
