A Girl with Attitude

Before I start I want to thank those "gorgeous girls" who leave such lovely comments on my work, THANK YOU so much you dont know how much it means to me.

Todays card is another of the new Gorguss Girl stamps from Funky Kits, this one is definately a girl with attitude, in fact it reminds me so much of my own daughters and of course granddaughters, and so I really had to have a go with this one. Ive stamped her onto white card and have again used my copic pens (Im still trying them out), Ive then cut her out with one of the Nestabilitie dies, then used another embossed pearlescent card to cut another to mount her on to. Because the stamped image is to big to fit the usual way I have moved the die around so that it will accomodate her, and then used the second layer as a mount for her.

The base card is another 8"x 8" card, but this time I have used my Martha Stewart border punch along the opening edge and stuck a piece of the embossed card behind it. Then on the base card I have mounted up onto pink card a piece of patterned card, these are mosting Red Hot Bed papers/card today, and then with a piece of pink pearlescent paper cut a strip and again used the same border punch along the edge, this was then stuck across the base card. On top of this I have layered a piece of pink card again with a second patterned paper.

The third layer I have used a glittered card and layered this up onto the embossed pink card and stuck in as a diamond on the base card, I didnt centre it this time. Then with the stamped image I stuck this onto this last layer slightly nearer the top of the card, I did put this further up the middle than the last layer. I also stuck a pink gingham ribbon along the punched out edge.

I have then used my Just-Rite stamp to stamp a greeting onto white card and with the heart dies, cut it out and layered it up with foam, this was then stuck to the left hand side at the top, and to finish of Ive used three posies that I bought or had given me, which I felt didnt over do things to much.
