The doll has a PW face with french text body & arms. I hand-drew the "seaweed" around her face and added the crystal and flower embellishments. For her tail (which moves) I used distressed embossing powder.
For the background, I did some needle felting using a stencil and poked the olive & lime roving through the cut-outs to make the "seaweed" design. I added some navy and purple roving to create a bit of a swirld and after placing the doll on the background I added some sequins and beads. Do you like it? I am very pleased with her and excited to mail her to her new home. :-)
The talented and gracious artist Lenna Andrews is hosting a Tallulah Card swap. Each of the 35 participants are sending in 4 cards to swap and one card to present to Leslie Elledge, owner of Alpha Stamps and sponsor of the swap. In exchange, we will receive 4 cards and one collage sheet from the sponsor. I also included a postcard for Lenna because she does such a great job hosting her swaps and the work that comes through her hands is divine!
Here are the postcards that I made. Oh, BTW, we could make any kind of "card" we wanted...postcards or greeting cards and they could be made of fabric, paper or a combination. I wanted to try paper and fabric together so this is what I ended up with. :-)
I can't wait to make more, aren't they fun!!! I love orange & pink together! LOL
