1st Gorguss Girl

I have been looking at these stamps in the Co Crafts Gallery for a while as members have been posting some fantastic cards using them. Last weekend I was telling OH about them and he said I should get some. I wanted the one sitting sideways (hope you know what I meany by that description) she was sold out so I had this one and 'a little bird told me', which I have yet to use.

Anyway here is my fiorst gorguss girl:

I stampedon white linen card and cut around her, coloured with whispers brush markers. Stuck her onto a nestie scalloped circle, which I added a tiny bit of chalk to the edges of.
Coloured stirps at bottom have been cut using fiskars threading water punch in three colurs to match my girl. I put her to the side of the card then had a large white space to fill so I cut paper flowers in the same papers as the bottom frills, some have been layered and sticky pearls added to the centres of them. I have seen these flowers in Pickles gallery so thanks for the inspiration pickle hope you don`t mind. You can visit her lovely blog here http://aloadofoldpickle.blogdpot.com/
