Gorjuss Sunday Sketch

Doh - I should have posted this card today and the earlier one tomorrow. Never mind!

This card is for three challenges, Sunday Sketch & Stamp -'sketch', Stampin' for the Weekend - 'orange teal and pink' and Stamp Something 'use your favourite stamp and add punches or die cuts'. Here's what I made:

My favourite stamp of the moment is this Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie as she's my most recent purchase. This was an experiment for me too as I've not tried the 'sitting out a Nestie' technique before. That's where the image is cut with the Nestie with bits left on the outside! Fab tutorial here.

I used Copics and ProMarkers to shade her and found these lush papers on Designer Extreme Vol 1 CD (I won it on a Stamptacular challenge). I punched matching flowers and a sunshine border too, again one of my bargain border punches before they became the 'in thing'.

That's all from me today folks, off to cook some sweet and sour chicken and partake in a glass of wine.
