Happy Valentine's day...

Hello, hello!

It's been a while so I pulled out one of my Gorjuss Girl stamps for today's card. She's called The Last Rose and I love her hair and outfit but the original image has her standing in a flower pot... which I've found kind of limiting. So I decided to do a bit of altering and wipe away the flower pot as well as her closed eyes before stamping. Then I grabbed one of my trusty multi-liner pens and drew in her missing feet as well as some open eyes. That made this little Gorjuss Girl much easier for me to work with. And I guess the altering didn't end there because I also replaced the leaf she was originally holding with a die cut heart since I ended up using her for a Valentine. I used some more paper from the Love Notes paper pad and even paper pieced her dress with that pretty floral print. I'm happy that I can now cross The Last Rose off my 'never been inked' list and I love how she turned out. :)

Later gators!
