Sweet and Goth


Sugar Nellie is a Scottish based stamp company and I recently bought a few of their Gorjuss Girls to play with. Their designs are so "girly" and are just the right size to practice Copics coloring. And they're easy to trim out, too
--a big plus for me!

Amy shared this card on her blog using Goth Girl and I didn't know what was "Goth" about her. I just liked how she was sitting and I wanted to place her on a circular design.


She has a teeny skeleton barrette, so I did an "Amy" and used a baby wipe to wipe away the skeleton and drew in a little heart. Check out Amy's tutorial here and here to see how she alters images.

Now Goth Girl isn't Goth anymore! Thanks, Amy, for sharing your altering tips and giving me the confidence to change that barrette.
