Simply Gorjuss


Today Ive got a Gorjuss card to share with you..I used the Gorjuss "Forget me Not" image and created my own starry night background by drawing stars with my white Prismacolor pencil and then using Stormy Sky Distress ink over the top..the pencil works as a resist..I like to use this technique for stars,or snow or you could even use it for fireworks or clouds if you wanted to=)

I couldnt find any patterened papers that I really liked with the dark blue background of the I decided to just use kraft cardstock..but it would be way to boring just to slap it on the card.So I decided I would use the larger Nestabilities (labels 10?) and emboss it onto the card front..I just put it face up on top of my card so it wouldn't cut through..and put my tan embossing pad inside the card and ran it through my cuttlebug. it creates a nice frame around my image and a little something on the inside too! Then I cut a few clouds using my PTI Clouds 1&2 die to add a third dimension. And I can't forget the inside because afterall..the sentiment was the inspiration for the scene in the first place. "Perhaps they are not Stars, but rather openings in Heaven. Where the Love of our lost ones pours through, and shines down upon us to let us know they are Happy" So, that's all Ive got for ya today..I hope you enjoyed! Happy Saturday=)
