Anime Inspired Gorjuss Card – My First Guest Design Team Project!

I am the Guest Designer for SpiegelMomScrapShop from etsy this month. This is actually my VERY FIRST time in a Guest Design Team and I am so EXCITED!

This is the card I created featuring SpiegelMomScrapShop’s sequins. When I was still a kid, I was obsessed with anime, especially those with an ordinary girl transforming into a super pretty and powerful magical warrior. I forgot most of the stories but their glamorous transformation scenes are still stuck in my mind. Who knows this would one day become the inspiration for a crazy card lol.

My intention is to use my Gorjuss Girl stamp and make her into a magical girl. To start off, I stamped out my Gorjuss Girl image in black, paper pierced her dress and then colored the rest with my color pencils. To make her even more realistic, I added a magic circle image obtained from Google Images. I also made her a magic wand using a painted toothpick and some embellishments in my stash.

The card front background was created using various colors of acrylic paints. I used pink, yellow and lavender to create a whimsical effect. Then, I embellished the card using some ephemera, mulberry paper flowers from butterflies661 and sequins from SpiegelMomScrapShop.

For the inside of the card, I matted it using the exact same paper from her dress. This is a VERY HANDY TIP for making cards like this so everything MATCHES! Finally, I adhered pieces of lace and pearl trim to prop up the card front.
