Just wondering how....

.. this DoCrafts Gorguss girl would look combined with my stamps... buying DoCrafts stamps is not something I normally do but I couldn't resist this one:
- I could see the possibilities of using her with my stamps - she's a nice size & stands alone ((nothing round her- some images in the group had animals)) and so could be placed in amongst my flowers..

.... I stamped the image on a piece of scrap Smoothie that was on my desk - I just wanted to see how she stamped out.. but then I kept going 'how would it look with flower stems', and 'what about leaves'  - by the time I'd finished I created the panel!
I was just playing - the Gorjuss image is quite cute (a bit of cute now & then can't do any harm can it) but I kept the colour relatively neutral & tried to dampen down the cute with the corrugated card but don't think it distracted much :o)  

But I don't mind  - she makes me smile.

I can see several more of these being created!  too cute..!  The co-ordinating papers (sorry, couldn't resist those either) are quite dark - greys, purples & reds- maybe I'll make a 'gothic' one.



  1. Omg...she's the perfect fit, love how cute it all works together x

  2. Really lovely, and quite a 'leap of faith' for you LOL xxx

    2. hahaha - not quite - its been bouncing around in my head for a while! been looking for the 'perfect' image... :o)

  3. made for each other!! It's great to see how images change so much just by using different colours - love this panel.

  4. I don't do cute either - but I can see now how I could be persuaded!! Gosh, not another range of stamps to collect!! OH will have to move out to the shed. Love the added texture of the corrugated cardboard.

  5. Just spotted one of these myself, but resisted the papers. Will be interested to see what you make with them,.


  6. Gorjuss goth, what a great idea. Love this card. A perfect mix of styles.

  7. Love love love Gorjuss Girls, i own around 8 of them & am tempted by the ones made especially for the range...

    Your stamps work so well with Her, am glad this one makes you smile.

    Beautiful panel Jo, just beautiful:-) xxx

  8. I think she looks just fab Jo! Jo x

  9. This kind of stamping with this little girl may not be your thing, but you made a great card with her.
    She is sweet and also cool because of your flowers and background.
    I'm glad you couldn't resist her and went out of your comfort zone on this journey :-))
