Creative Inspirations 34 & Totally Gorjuss

Hello everyone, I was lucky enough to win a challenge on Creative Inspirations and one of the prizes was to be their guest designer for November, so here is my GDT card for my first challenge with them. So, Creative Inspirations Challenge 34 has a theme of red and black and I am also entering my creation for this week's Totally Gorjuss Chalenge which has a theme of seeing double.

For my card I have used one of my gorjuss girl stamps and she is cloured with distress inks. I have then cut her out and matted her onto an oval that has been cut with my oval nesties and ran through my cuttlebug with my d'vine swirl folder. My DP is from basic grey and I have inked all around the edges with fired brick distress ink. The ribbon is from American Crafts and the jewels from my stash.

I have also done a matching gift tag to make a little set.

Finally, a close up of my image

Card/Paper: Black and white card, Basic Grey - Boxer
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Girl - Just a girl
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, black soot, weathered wood, fired brick
Embellishments: Ribbon, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, d'vine swirl folder

Thanks for looking x
