Blue Dreams

This is the last of four images that Ive used my copic pens on, and this is again one of the Gorguss Girls, I think this one must be Girl wearing a pinny.

I stamped this image onto white card and again used the copic pens to colour her, Ive then used the large label die to cut her out, and then cut another out of pale blue mirri card and turned it around to mount her onto.

The base card is another of the 8"x 8" cards, and on this I have mounted a dark blue mirri card with one of the Bearly Mine designs, on top of this I have created an octagon shape and used a second gingham design from the cd, the third layer is a piece of dark blue pearlescent paper and Ive used one of the Martha Stewart border punches.

On top of this I have layered another mount, this time Ive used a daisy paper, and positioned this in the centre of the pearlescent paper, across the middle I have stuck a border of lace daisies. I have then put foam on the back of the stamped image and positioned her in the centre of this last mount over the daisies.

I then stamped a greeting onto card, and cut it out with one of the ribbon label dies, and threaded blue spotted ribbon through the ends and stuck this below the stamped mounted image.

To finish of the card, Ive created a multi blue flower with a silver spacer and blue pearl brad, with a butterfly charm hanging from the back, this was then stuck with some punched out leaves to the top of my card on the left hand side. The final embellishments are two sets of three pearls stuck to the bottom and top of my card.
