"A Relaxing Gorjuss Birthday"

This is the other Gorjuss (sitting) stamp I ordered. I painted her
on Saturday when I painted the other one. So yesterday I went
out looking for a pair of trainers!!! and what did I come back
with?......these gorgeous new papers from Dovecraft!!!
Don't you think they are just lush.............................

They are called Wild Blossom! As I love gardening and anything
to do with flowers I just had to have them. After pledging that I
would buy no more crafting stuff!! (My Husband just stood there
in amazement shaking his head)!! famous last words comes to
mind!...... But your Honour I didn't buy any trainers!!!
So as she was looking lovely and pink I thought I would
sit her in this beautiful big Pink (Hibiscus I think)? flower.
I cut out the same flower and two lots of leaves from another
sheet of the same paper. The leaves are so delicate they just
twisted and lifted their own way, which I left to give it a
natura 3d effect and just stuck where they laid flat naturally.
The tiny butterflies are stamped (Stamp is Santa Rosa CA 1999,
another golden oldie) with Staz on from another paper in this
set and then cut out too. I then finished off with some lovely
irridescent stones to make it look like dew drops on the flowers
and glittered to highlight certain parts of the leaves and
flowers and also the flower in her hair. As the ABC Challenge
is G for Glitter I decided to enter her for that. The sentiment was
printed directly onto the paper, I measured the size first and
used a plain white piece to make sure it would print where
I wanted it to, the wording was done using WordArt.
Think thats everything! TFL Sue xx
The cutting out proceedure! I then used 3d foam pads.
