Angel paperdoll and happy new year!

Hope you're having a fantastic new year, all ready for more inspiration and new releases from sweetpea stamps. This time I have gone all out, hoping to get your crafty fingers itching. Time to long for spring :)
Unfortunately my sweetie has gotten the flu and I'm on my way there too, so no partying for us tonight, but my doll will be dancing...

The stamps I have used are from ching chou kuik plate 33 by sweetpea stamps. This is one of my fav sheet of all times. Sayings for the arms and legs are from different sheets. The images are colored with promarkers and watercolor pencils. The edges are inked with different distress inks. The doll is cut out in white paper and heavier designer papers for the back and wings. The images for the skirt are masked. I made the pattern for the doll myself. For the top and skirtpart I used 3D tape - thicker for the skirt. The joints of the legs and arms are attached with brads. I made sure the back was as beautiful as the front in case it would hang in a window or similar so I added matching little flowers for the joint's backs. I also added some pretty organza ribbon for the hem and top of the dress.

The doll is about 10" (25cm) tall and you can bend the joints.

I want to wish all of my visitors, readers and commentators a big


I hope you will continue to stop by for more inspiration and to give me much appreciated love. You all keep me going.

Little glittery seahorses and mermaid ATC

It's been a while since I made an ATC (artist trading cards) so I thought I'd give it a go again. I've been away to see my mom before Christmas and brought my copics to practice my coloring skills. I love making ATC's out of those images since I don't have to bother about matching them up with any papers. Coloring that way makes it more free.

The image I have used is by Elaine Cox and it's called little seahorses mermaid by sweetpea stamps.

Simon says stamp - bingo (ribbon, gems and glitter)
Stampin for the weekend - anything goes
