Fantasy Stampers - Girl Power

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Here we are at the weekend. This is a special day for me it is actually my birthday. We are meeting my parents and my daughter and her boyfriend for lunch in Winchester. Later on I am hoping to see the new Avengers Ensemble film.

This is my Design Team card for the Fantasy Stampers Challenge blog the theme this time is Girl Power. I struggled a bit with this theme and then I remembered some Gorjuss stamps in my stash and I chose this one as I thought she looked determined and thoughtful. She is called The Collector.

I started with an 8" x 8" card black blank. I do like this size there is so much potential. 

I stamped the image twice one was coloured one with Promarkers and cut  out by hand the other was left uncoloured and then cut  out with a hexagon die. This meant that it was easy to line the coloured image over the uncoloured one I used a gel glue to give it a bit of height. You also get natural shadow without having to do any colouring. 

The sentiment was from a stamp set designed by Sam Poole.

With the  Gorjuss stamp set came some little heart stamps and I stamped one of these in black around the edge of the red mat to add some interest.

I might post some pictures of my special present tomorrow. Have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
