Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 133 - Something New

Hello Everyone

I hope you have all had a lovely week - Ooooh isn't this warm weather for us in the UK soooo nice!  So nice in fact, that it gave me a chance to use this little beauty of a digi stamp below which celebrates the great British pastime of caravanning!  I am a bit bias though as I do work to a touring caravan manufacturer and yes, I do go caravanning / motorhoming and what a fab time you can have - sorry waffle over.


Our challenge this week at Totally Gorjuss is "Something New".  As always you can interpret this however you want and my interpretation this week is a "New" Digi Stamp that I haven't used yet - well I have now but it's the first time if you know what I mean ;oS - oh my I think the sun has gone to my head!

Our generous sponsor this week is Craft All Day so if you would like to win a voucher to spend in their store then get yourself over to the Totally Gorjuss blog add your name with a link back to your card and you're in.  Make sure you have a look at what the lovely ladies have created for you - lots of different ideas for your inspiration.

So without further ado here is the card that I made:


There's not much difference between the two pictures I hear you say, but I so do enjoy making CAS cards and with Krista Smith's Saturated Canary images they just seem to fit.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary "Winnie" by Krista Smith

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20 R30
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23
Clothes, Boots & Bunting:  E35 E33 E34 RV81 RV00 RV000 RV0000
Caravan Stripe:  E53 E51 E50
Caravan Curtains:  E42 E41 E40
Wheels:  N9 N7 N5 C3 C1 C0
A-Frame:  C3 C1 C0
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

Oh and I used a little brad in the centre of the wheel

And there you have it.

I do hope you can come and join in with us - I so love looking at the cards / creations you make they are just packed full of inspiration.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend - I'm trying to re-design my garden at the mo in the hope that we do get a summer after all (fingers and toes and legs and arms and anything I can get crossed!).

Take care and toodle pip until next time.
