Gemma Gumdrop

Hello blog land, I haven't posted for a couple of weeks...........

I've made this card to support the fab Ladies over at the Come and Get It blog challenge.  One of their sponsors this week is Lacy Sunshine (absolutely stunning images) and the theme is 'Things with Wings'.  I've used the gorgeous Gemma Gumdrop, you can find her here. 

With a name like that, I thought she needed to be bright and would look perfect with candy pink hair.  I've coloured her with my spectrum noir markers and left the dress and hat quite washy to keep the focus on the hair.

I've made the card shape a sweet (candy) wrapper by sitting and working out measurements and folds (with my trusty pencil, ruler and boxer board) on paper before hand.  I've made it using centura pearl and matted with papers from my stash.  I've added a printed sentiment before I cut 'Gemma' out using an xcut die.  I've used a Tonic die and a few pearls and flowers to finish it off

  7. Hi Kerry, I am a newbie in blog land, I found your card on 'Crafting at the Weekend challenge' I have never seen a card like this before. It's eye catching and unusual, your image of Gemma, Wow her hair is amazing, what Spectrum Noir's did you use on her hair please as you have inspired me to practise this on one of my digi stamps. I am really happy that I came across your blog today, happy crafting :)
