One of our exchanges in 2013 for DivaArtGroup is an art doll exchange with another member each month. This is the doll that I made for Marsha. I used stamps from Catherine Moore's Character Constructions: Bird & Bee Paperie #11 (torso), Mannequin Cafe #6 (dress and arms) and French Laundry #14 (legs). I stamped the bottom of the dress 2X on vellum and stapled them together sandwiching in the love birds (sticking their heads through slits) and adding flower confetti to the inside of the skirt. I added a bow in her hair, a lace collar, pink rhinestone button, and magenta butterflies. I made a tag with "No. 46" to coordinate with the numer on the bodice. And lastly, I added a strip of washi with the black birds to the bottom of the skirt.
This is the fabulous creation Marsha sent to me. I am thrilled with her! The litle note on the front of the card says: "Upon entering middle age, she developed a fondness for umbrellas & galoshes & noisy spring thunderstorms. And now her friends find her wandering contentedly through puddles when she REALLY SHOULD be working." Isn't that a hoot! Sounds just like me! LOL Ah, kindred spirits. ") She came with two umbrellas: one open and one closed. Also she has two pairs of galoshes. I love that wild dress and those magenta tights! Marsha named her "Wild Wanda" and it just fits! Thanks again, Marsha!
