This is another Santoro Gorjuss Girl called, “The Little Friend,” that I’ve been wanting to color up for a while. With her fanciful patterned bib, striped tights and combat boots, she reminded me of a friend of mine from college who always marched to the beat of her own drum. She was funky, creative, fun and I always admired her joie de vivre.
I colored up the Gorjuss Girl with the following Copic colors:
Blue dress: B41, B32 and B45
Green bib: YG01 and YG07
Orange squiggles: YR04 and YR07
Raspberry/purple in tights, underskirt and hair: V04, V06 and V09
Black in hair and tights: C3, C5, C7 and 100
Skin: E50, BV01, E51, E21 and R20
For the card front, I decided to keep it simple and just use up some funky patterned papers from my scrap box. I used a very neutral diamond patterned paper in various greys for the base. I also found a great striped paper that seemed to coordinate with the colors I used on the girl’s tights and hair so I used the medium size heart from the Diemond Dies Inside & Out Stitched Hearts Die Set to “frame” the Gorjuss Girl. For a little added layering and interest, I also used the smallest heart die from the set to cut out a scrap of vellum. For the sentiment, I used just the script “love” from the Diemond Dies Sending Love Die Set and positioned it to the right of the Gorjuss Girl overlapping the heart layers.
