Gorjuss butterflies


As you may know my favourite colour is purple but I do struggle with matching the Copics. There are so many variations of purple, some lilac, some pinker so I am really glad I bought a hex chart as recommended by Faye. It helped me to match the colours on this one and it came out better than my usual efforts at purple. You may also know that I love all things Gorjuss and am surrounded by Gorjuss items in my craft room. As I type this I am drinking coffee from my Gorjuss mug.

Fabulous card Marianne! So beautifully coloured image and a wonderful card design. Love the shape of the card and the purple highlights in her hair. I've just used a Gorjuss image for the first time, I've never coloured black hair before. My friend loves anything Gorjuss too so have just bought a few Gorjuss bits for her gift. Debra x

She's really lovely Marianne, and I'm loving the purple! I'm a fan of the gorjuss girls too. Saw a bag a while ago that I didn't buy as I couldn't afford it, but I still regret it almost three years later!
With DT cap on: Thank you for playing along with us at Sweet Stampin' this week. Sammy-x
