Yes, indeed this is my 4th post this week........no gasping or holding your breath PLEASE! *grin*
It has been such a busy summer that my blogging all but died, BUT I'm back now and hope to keep up with all the Blogland adventures.
Our oldest GD, Hannah, will turn 9 years old next week and this is the card I created for her. I have quite a few of these Prima Doll stamps and enjoy paper piecing them for cards......especially for the GDs. ( I really have them because I loved paper dolls as a kid.....*grin*)
The card base was colored with Gelatos, then wiped with a wet wipe to blend it. The white die cut was used for a little texture and design. The doll was stamped onto a flesh colored paper and the hair colored with Prisma CP. The dress was fussy cut from a snippet of paper that was hand decorated years ago.......back when all the pretty paper wasn't readily available. For the ruffle and bow I used a little snippet of vellum, and touched the edges with gold glitter paint, along with the shoes. Hannah like her sparklies.......just like G-ma! hahaha! The sentiment is a very old one from who knows where, stamped on a die cut vellum and gold embossed. The number 9 was cut from the last snippet of an other hand decorated paper.
Remember hand decorating your own background papers?? Back when it was the "thing" to do I took cardstock, and /or colored construction paper and made background papers with webbing sprays ( who remembers those?) glitter sprays and just spray paint. It was so much fun that I had piles of them......now they have all but become a memory.
I want to join a couple of challenges with this card, 613 Avenue Create: #137 Anything Goes
Hope you have a super - great - creative weekend!
