Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 3

Here's my 3rd DT card for Crafty Cardmakers, which is our first sketch challenge. It's a lovely simple sketch so it's easy to add your own little touches to it! Please have a look at the rest of the fabulous DT work and play along if you can :o)

I've finally used this fabulous gorjuss girl stamp that I've had for quite a few weeks but haven't had chance to use yet, I love it! I'm still trying to improve my colouring with promarkers and this is a great image to practise on, I'm quite happy with the results but still need lots more practise. I've used both sides of a double sided paper by My Mind's Eye, called Starburst 'little blossom' dots/ brown, that I picked up in a local craft shop (Craft Haven). The image is matted on coredinations cardstock and everything is edged with distress inks. The flowers are Green Tara and the roses are from Hobbycraft - I've sprayed them with a spray on adhesive and then sprinkled glamour dust on, I also used glamour dust on the gorjuss girl's wings. I've added a little charm on a chain, fixed to the back of one of the flowers. The round sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly, stamped in clear ink and embossed in white, and then cut out with nestabilities circles. Finally I added some little flower beads that I found in my stash, including one to finish off her hair.

This is so pretty Lisa. I love the colours you've used. I have to admit to never having used this image yet. I love what everyone else has done with her though. Some day I am going to get round to using it because it is lovely. I keep trying to use my Promarkers too in the hope that I'll get better at colouring with them!!

Love this card Lisa, and the Glamour Dust is fab. Great idea to use spray adhesive - must get some.

Think I'll combine this challenge with DC Gorjuss Girl one.
