Flowers for Joan

Hello.  Welcome  I've used a Prima doll, MME patterned cardstock and the recipe from Joan's Touch to make this confirmation card.  Joan's recipe this week was to cut your card so part of the image stood above the fold and to use cardstock for colour.  I found this quite a challenge and it was going to be a christmas tree card but I have discovered my cutting skills aren't so good when you need the positive and negative intact.  And the christmas tree die has temporarily disappeared so no help there.  Instead I found a stamp with simple lines and went with that. 

I stamped my Prima Doll using Memento Black Tuxedo ink directly onto the patterned cardstock and cut out the top of the image and then folded the card.  I stamped again on flowered paper and paper pieced her dress and hairband.  I coloured her hair with henna promarker and added some shading to the ruffle with blue promarker.  I added some lace.  Had to cut around her a bit more to get it behind her.  Added some pearls from Storyteller and the sentiment is Kort og Godt.  It reads good luck today and for the future.  I added some dots with a black marker on the RHS to extend the stamp and make it look a bit better.  Although I admit it's not the straightest stamping I have ever done.  I still need to put something over the back hole and an insert inside.  A little shabby chic maybe..........

Felt like I needed some more dots so I have doodled and doodled a bit more.  Now she looks grounded.
