Gorjuss girls

I bought this stamp when they first came out and am embarrassed to say this is her first inking. I have the print of this on my wall in my craft room along with two others so I had to buy her, why then I wonder why has it taken me over a year to ink her up. I don't think I will ever understand myself lol.

I have decided to try a technique that I saw on Amy R's blog, she doesn't mat with cardstock but instead uses an ink pad to provide a break between the papers. I kinda like it but I think I should have picked more varied papers, oh well there is always next time.

I used a sketch Saturday sketch and this is the second time I have used this one, I can't link it though as it was last weeks lol. I actually made the card on the day the sketch went live but as I didn't want the recipient to see it before their birthday I am posting it today. So happy birthday Tanmo.
