I decided to use one of my Gorjuss girls and Basic Grey's Porcelain papers. I stamped my Gorjuss girl twice, once on shrink plastic and coloured them with Copic markers. Ooh I do love shrinking images - it's such good fun. I had a few disasters trying this initially but I've cracked it now. No more heat gun - in the oven they go on gas M3 for a couple of minutes and out they come - perfect!! I cut the middle strip with EK Success zig-zag stitch border punch - then covered it up.........derrr..... although you can just see it peeping out. I placed one bead of Gorjuss's hair to cover up the skeleton and used beads on the pin and the charm. The flowers are some I picked up in my local craft shop (threw the packet out (idiot that I am) so I can't tell you who they are by). The sentiment is computer generated.Materials
