This is my first time making a card with a Santoro Gorjuss girl stamp that Kelly sent me to work with, it's called Santoro - Gorjuss Girls Stamp - Summer Days. Actually, this month, Kelly at http://www.7kidscrafts.com/ is having a sale with the Docrafts Santoro Gorjuss Girls. It took me a little while to work on this image but it came alright in the end. I also tried out a new technique that I learned from Amy Young's at athousandsheetsofpaper.blogspot.com. The technique was the very first Walk Thru Wednesday theme on the 7 Kids Crafts Newsletter. This die overlay or "Eclipse Technique" is a pretty neat way to use words especially when you want to say a message but don't want the word to overshadow the image which is the focal point. I really loved trying that technique out and I think any person that loves handmade cards will especially appreciate.
On to my Gorjuss - Summer Days
I colored her up with Copic markers which Kelly has at the 7 Kids Crafts store
and one Spectrum Noir marker on Spectrum Noir Paper.
Ink to Stamp the image:

The embossing enamel on the sand is from Stampendous! Aged Ivory
The Hello die is from The Greeting Farm
and the rectangle die is from My Creative Time
The A Happy Hello stamp on the envelope is from
Gina K. Designs.
Here is some of the process photos I did to create this card.
and position, finally I picked a "hello" from The Greeting Farm
rectangle die, I then cut the hello word die.
Make sure to save all of your little negative space
or colored bits, you'll need them later.
(See photo below)
then glued one down along with the little colored bits.
