Totally Gorjuss - Plain and Simple

Well Hellooooooo to You All

And a great big "HOWDY" to my new follower - thank you for deciding to follow my work - I'm truly very flattered.

So it's Saturday again already - sheesh, where are the week's going too - so that can only mean one thing - its challenge time again over at Totally Gorjuss.

This week we want to see all your "Plain and Simple" cards - sounds easy huh - but I got to admit, I struggle with the challenge - it's harder then some people think - for me anyway! ;o)

Our lovely sponsor this week is Heather's Hobbie Haven so to get your mitts on a £10 voucher to spend in their store make sure you get your entries in over at the Totally Gorjuss site and whilst your there make sure you have a look at what the lovely DT ladies have made - so talented aren't they!

Here is my full card:

Heh heh heh - I love this image ;o)

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Tiddly Inks - Minnie's Lights

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000
Hair:  E18 E19 E15 E13
Dress, Shoes and Glasses:  R39 R29 R27 R24 R22
Christmas Lights:  YR09 YR07 / RV09 RV06 / G07 G03 / Y19 Y13 / B05 B02 / R29 R24 / C6 C4

The image has been outlined with Weathered Wood Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink

I stitched around the edge of the paper with my sewing machine but you can just draw any kind of stitch you want with a fine-liner pen if you want.

I have also used Glossy Accents on her glasses and all the Christmas lights but I just couldn't get a good enough picture to show you - sorry - :o(

And that's it.  I hope you will come and join in the fun with us.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
