GORJUSS Stamps and Purple Hair


I am SMITTEN with a line that I stumbled upon recently.

First of all, here's what I made.

(stamps:DoCrafts Gorjuss The White Rabbit,WORD sentiment  dies:Simon Says Stamp Greeting Blocks,My Favorite Things Cross-Stitch Oval,Newton's Nook Darling Hearts  other:striped washi)

Sorry 'bout your eyes...

I should have warned you that brightness was happenin'!

You may not be able to see the purples I added to her hair.

You know how sometimes fiction can't quite grasp real life?

Well, in this case, it's true.  This character's hair is a little more mild than my daughter's hair~which I colored recently.

Gurlfriend is BRAVE to let momma color it, but just so you know, we were going for solid, not tie-dye.

That's what happens when you're tired and don't know what you're doing~annnnd adding bobby pins in the process gives off this look too.

Fortunately for me, she LOVES my mistake and has gotten so many compliments...esp coming from a little 4 year old that shyly told her she looked like Ariel.

Oh. my. word. 

She said it was WORTH this fun color with that type of sweetness.

Anyway, I went a little more discreet with my stamped girlie.

Can I just brag a little on the packaging with these Gorjuss products?

 I've never seen anything like it!!!!


I am entering this in Simon Says (Monday):World Traveler.

This particular stamp I used is called The White Rabbit~I'm thinking it's loosely based on Alice in Wonderland (which is why I picked this stamp up).

I loosely interpreted this challenge as "another" world travel~by adding my own "it's time" sentiment which I typed on my computer and die cut.

I pictured all the travels and unusual colors that Alice (which I LOVE in BRUNETTE style) encounters.

 Thanks for taking the time to travel to my corner of the web~

Your card is fabulous Marlene, love how you colored this little "Alice" girl. I also am loving the bright colors and speaking of bright colors, I so love your daughter's hair!!! It looks ombre to me and so pretty. Not in your face kind of purple, but soft. At first I thought it was a Copic colored image! lol I do love it! Hugs, Brenda
