Another Gorjuss Girl.....

I must admit I really love these images even though they've got no is number 3 for me and I bought the gorgeous new Blueberry Hill Papers from Papermania which are beautiful so decided to use them.I also decided to use some vellum which I've had for ages and never knew what to do with.
I'm off to crack on with a scrapbook page for my class on Monday night.I want to get it done so I can enjoy the holiday weekend without rushing at the last minute (like

Copic Colour Challenge #10

Well I decided to enter the Copic Colour Challenge again as I need to practise more with my Copics.I really struggled with the colours as what image to use and the Prussian Blue (B39) was very dark.I think I managed to sneak a little bit down the side of the vase.The card is quite CAS for me as I like to add lots of embellishments but thought it suited the image to keep it simple.The stamp was a bit of a pain too as it's not very detailed with the flowers so you've got to add the flower definition yourself.It probably lends itself better to being watercoloured.These are the colours we had to use.

This is my card

Gorjuss Girl # 2

Well I've been tearing my hair out for the last few days trying to get my camera to work to get a photo of this card.It still keeps shutting down when you click to take the pic.I've tried new batteries and took them out and warmed them up and it's still lucky to take one picture.I think a new one is called for.Anyway I finally managed to get one and only one of this card.I coloured this with my Copics before I had read Rach's tutorial so don't look too hard at've distressed the edges of the cardstock and papers with my BG toolkit and inked with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink as well as round the image and ticket. (It's not showing very well as it was quite bright for a change!)

Copic Colour Challenge #9

The Copic Colour Challenge this week was to use the following colours.

Well I've never ever done a challenge before and so I'm right in at the deep end with this one using Copics,as I've only had mine a few weeks and still getting to grips with them.I suppose this is the best way to learn though.I'd have never ever used these colours together but was surprised how lovely they went together.I'm not particularly happy with the colouring of this image as I found it a bit fiddly,but it's done now.

Gorjuss Girl And Copics

Here's my first Gorjuss Girl.I held off buying them because I've got a thing about no mouths (like Magnolias) but I made an exception with these as they've kind of grown on me (unlike Tildas!
I've got to thank the fabulous Rach for her Copic tutorial on her blog,which you can find HERE. She made the tutorial so easy to follow and look so easy,even though it's not.I learned more from her tutorial in a few hours than I did in a few weeks reading others. I'm happier with the colouring of this although I still need loads of practise.

I took Louis through to Edinburgh on the 'big' train yesterday and we popped up to the castle for a bit and then had a wee walk down the Royal Mile.It was absolutely FREEZING and we were lucky if we heard another Scottish/British accent.It was heaving with tourists.My camera wasn't working very well (I think the batteries were too so only got a few pics.Here's one of Louis anyway (posing as usual).

Daisy With Her Pram

Found a little time to have a play with a few new stamps I got.Daisy with her pram by Sugar Nellie.I've also let loose my first Copic coloured image.My practice one was sent to the lovely Kerry for her birthday.
I've been busy trying to keep Louis amused as the weather has been lousy,so haven't had time to do much crafting or blog hopping.Hopefully tonight I'm going to have a good catchup with everyone.
