More Gorjuss!!

Dana here and I cannot wait to share these two fun (and fast!!) projects with you!! Do you ever find yourself in a bind and want to make something pretty quick but still want it to be unique and handcrafted? You HAVE to check out the new Decoupage sets icopic is carrying!! I've used the Pirate and Awash set and I just love the way they turned out!! You get the decoupage sheet and a matching piece of cardstock.
This first one is the Pirate:

There are three elevations on this one:
The whole thing made me think of Jack Sparrow and the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie coming out so I just had to add some hemp with beads!
And the other one with the mermaid is just as cute, just not as many layers on this one:

Here's a side shot so you can see her popped up and a close up of the bow:

That is just chalk white seam binding that I dyed with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I layed the seam binding on a piece of wax paper and ran my pads right across it. I used Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Faded Blue Jeans. Then I spritzed it all with Copper GlimmerMist and scrunched it up real good to give it that crinkled look.  Then I dried it with my heat tool just fluffing slightly and continued to wipe up the puddles of color on my wax paper.  I love how it turned out!! 
Ok, so you know I just had to make a card with my copics too, so.... 
Oh my gosh.. I LOVE this image from Sarah Kay for Stampavie!! Is she not just the sweetest? I wanted to keep her hat, dress and kitty pretty much white.  My favorite colors for shadowing whites are BV20, BV23 and BV25.  Are you sick of this post yet or do you want to see one more close up?

 The sentiment is from Amy R's Sassy Sentiments set.  I also need to mention that gorgeous (and funtional!!) Divine Twine I used to attach my button to my ribbon!! Love that stuff!!
Thanks so much for looking!! I hope to see your creations in this weeks challenge!

Hugs~
