happy new year!

My Flickr friend Deirdre made a cute card using some free digis from Torico's Digital Gallery. Torico generously shares her fun, whimsical images and I snagged a bunch of them. Thank you, Torico!


Here's an image called Gosuloli (Does it not sound like "Go Slowly"?) Girl. She's a little goth cutie and she was a lot of fun to color. I think she's stashing that little snowman and welcoming in the New Year.

The card base is a scrap piece stamped with Hero Arts' Classic Fabric Design. I colored her with Copics, and used Cosmo Cricket alpha stickers to form the sentiment. The seam binding was dyed with Black Soot distress ink, and I dyed the paper rose with some Copic (R83 & R85) ink refills. Although the photo doesn't show it, I applied some Aqua Lip clear glaze to the little skull, snowman, and her eyes for a bit of shine.

Thanks to all of you who visited my blog this year, and left such wonderful comments, too. Here's wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Hero Arts shadow ink, Black Soot distress ink
