Gorjuss Little Foxes and I create a Birthday Card



Hi guys! So sorry for being a terrible blogger over the last week, I've not had ANY mojo at all, and haven't managed to get into the craft room because of it.... But, tonight after dinner, I sat down and created!
I started off stamping this Gorjuss Girl onto watercolour paper, and coloured her in with coloured pencils (plain Derwent pencils) and then with cotton buds and some Mineral Turpentine, I blended the colours. Here's a closeup -
Now, onto the rest of the card, it is a So Saffron card base, layered with Basic Gray, and Basic Black and another piece of So Saffron, cut with the Top Note Die. I layered some Twill ribbon on top (from the Ribbon Carousel) and then a piece of Whisper White with the sentiment (from Sale-a-bration set Elementary Elegance) in Basic Gray. The two buttons, are self cover buttons covered with gray felt and attached with my hot glue gun. 
I am entering this into three challenges, I took inspiration from The Play Date Cafe Colour challenge, also the layout inspiration is from CASE study challenge, and finally, the Felt challenge from the Ribbon Carousel Challenge.
Thanks for popping by, don't forget there is a 15% off sale on at my MadeIt Store, and Blog Candy up for grabs. Thanks for popping by, I'll hopefully get my mojo back soon!

I love this card. I would love to know what kind of Derwent pencils you used and where you got them. Did you just use turpentine from a hardware store. Thanks for any any help.!
