Gorjuss Monday

Good Morning!

How was your weekend? Good I hope! It wasn't the nicest weather here either day, rain a good deal of the weekend, but we made the most of the time we had. Hoping for a sunnier week ahead. The rainy drab weekend did lend to some crafting time though which is always fun!

I've been wanting to just make some cards for no other reason than to stamp so I went through my stash and settled on this sweet Sugar Nellie Goth Girl stamp and decided to try the challenge at The Sugar Bowl too.

I used the sketch from the challenge along with the added theme challenge to use the color combo pink, white, and black. It's been a long time since I joined in at the Sugar Bowl challenges or used my Sugar Nellie stamps. I used some white, pink, and black card stock with a black and white polka dot paper (? not sure on the brand) and a pink and white stars paper (Magnolia).  I used the sewing machine to stitch my paper edges and them embellished with corduroy buttons and black hemp twine.

The image was colored with Copics and this was my first try with black hair. I still need some practice, but I was happy with the final result. I also used some pink Copics to created the dotty background detail around the image. My final accent was to add some sticky gems to the 4 corners of the card as well as to her hair.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Incy Wincy Challenges: For the Little Ones
Just Add Ink: Just add Stitching

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a terrific Monday! 

Happy Stamping,
