One of the things the playday ladies hate hearing me say is that if they buy anything at the Taunton Sincerely Yours show they have to make a project with it and prove it before the next playday. I can't really enforce the rule if I don't follow it myself so I dragged out the inks and settled down to make a birthday card for my daughter.
I started off using seedless preserves, victorian velvet, squeezed lemonade, wild honey and dusty concorde distress ink to create a mottled background. I then went over with my new memory box stars stencil and seedless preserves di, then an old script stencil & wild honey di. Next out came the biscotti perfect pearls mist and I sprayed through the stars stencil. Then came a really old dimension fourth script stamp and yet more seedless preserves di and black archival with a birthday sentiment stamp. Matted on to black pearl and cream pearl card.
The band was cut using a spellbinders border die, both top and bottom glued underneath a strip of the same black card and some cream grosgrain ribbon from SU.
The Prima doll was another new purchase at Taunton. I watercoloured her skin & hair with my albrecht druer pencils before adding touches of glittery highlight with a wink of stella. Once totally dry I cut her out and paper pieced her dress using paper from First Editions "Dream Catcher" pad and lifted her using tiny foam dots. Despite the card being 5" by 7" I still had to chop her feet off to fit on to the card!
I'm entering the card into the following challenges
