Winter Friends .... Gorjuss

As promised another Gorjuss from the recent release 'Winter Friends' !
Again coloured in the Gorjuss style intended by the artist,  which I just love.
Coloured using Promarkers and then dusted with TH distress ink 'Antique Linen' which seems to give me the effect I am looking for with these girls.
Lost my mojo abit this week but yesterday I won some Spellbinders border dies which is brilliant as I don't have any Spellbinders. Just ordered the tan embossing mats recommended to get the best results so as soon as they arrive I will be away and I hope my mojo will come with them?  
Today I have won some Oriental gold embossed paper from Papermania AND two digis from Crafty Sentiments.  How lucky am I? 
Off to buy a lottery ticket seeing as my luck is in, fingers crossed!
Take care, Jane x

Gorjuss ...

Today I have a card using one of the new Gorjuss, this one is called 'Toadstools', isn't just Gorjuss!
I can't believe the temperatures outside and I am posting a Christmas creation, mad or what, but I couldn't resist the new collection and playing straight away.
I have stuck to the traditional Gorjuss colours, dingy, dark kind of style and I am rather pleased with the results.  I have used Promarkers, TH 'Antique Linen' for the dusting and the same again but in disress stain for the snowflakes and a touch of Glimmer Mist.  The sentiment is from a HOTP QVC collection along while ago so I can't find a reference for you.  I have also used some Core-dinations cardstock I suppose you would say  petrol blue kinda colour along with   ???

you guessed it, plenty of hand stitching!
Thanks for popping by once again and I have another Gorjuss in the pipeline so if you like this you might want to see the next, this time I am using 'Winter Friends' bye for now.
