this & that

Here's the reverse of the Juliet card from yesterday with a few additional touches. I stamped it all over with Staz-on ink and a background stamp, then embossed a butterfly in gold. I think this card is finished and ready to be sent to its new owner.


And this is for Ethel & Edna, who was curious about the dolls I've made. This is Dreamgirl, taken when she was part of my fiber exhibit last summer in the VAAM Gallery.


I'm enjoying fresh flowers I cut this morning, white peonies, peach iris, and false indigo. This has been a wonderful year for spring flowers. Everyone's gardens have just been lush, especially iris and peonies so far.

Have a great Wednesday, all.

The card looks even nicer now and I love the doll!

Ooh she's fab! I love her hair and her face. I have real problems with faces. The Silly Girls are OK but when it comes to the others I always mess up. Mouths especially.

hee hee You're online now then...

Have the Patti book and have had a go using her techniques but 1, we are limited in which American products we can get easily in the UK and 2, sometimes all that painting is a bit too much. Sometimes I would rather keep it simple. But then sometimes I take that to extremes (like the belly dancer doll with no mouth just 2 black bead eyes).

Your Juliet card looks lovely. I really like all these cards and ATCs with images but I only have a black and white laser printer. I just ordered some images ready printed from joggles, so maybe I will have a go over 1/2 term week, (coming up in the UK) I like your doll. I have the Patti books also, and I made a couple of dolls from them, but they don't look as nice as yours.

I was just going to say that I liked the way she doesn't look too Patty-ish! More individual is what I mean! Shut up, Kate! Lol xx
