Gorjuss Girl

I absolutely loved a card that Michele Boyer made recently using one of the MFT stencils.  Click HERE to see her card.  As I bought several of their stencils last month I was itching to try this technique.  This is a new image that I'd forgotten I had - please tell me you do that too :).  I must say I am loving these Gorguss Girls and what a perfect name for them.

I made this card specifically for our volunteer at work.  She's heading back to school and we wanted to thank her for all her hard work.  She has gorgeous, long, black hair and after watching several You Tube videos on colouring black hair, I gave it a try. 

I stamped the sentiment on the inside leaving lots of room for everyone to write.

Here are the copics I used.

I had so much fun colouring this girl up, I made two more and I'll show you those tomorrow. 


Stamps:  I Gave You  My Heart, MFT Thanks a Bunch

Oh you're not alone. I have no clue what all is in my stamp stash. I even have a couple of these GG cuties I've never inked up. I applaud you for tackling the black hair. That one escapes my abilities at present. Adorable card Leslie. Hugs!
