Playthings…

We have now finished the wedding saying!! Hah! So, a new challenge begins at MMM this week and we are to show “playthings” in our artwork… Here’s an ATC I created featuring a dolly, some string and staple – a few of my favourite things, although I would have to admit that I never have liked dolls very much and even cut my Tressy doll’s ponytail off one day! Ooops!

"Baby Doll" (yuck!)

The background is brayered distress ink on an old book page, stamped with Home Impressions stamps, which I love! Sadly, Ria has sold her line of stamps but they are still available to buy from the new owner in the Netherlands… The ATC blank is a matt board one from Habs and Nabs – Ebay shop!

  8. This distressed red background is the perfect foil for the vintage photo: faded, but somehjow still vibrant and young. This is really an adorable card, Rosie, and the story is equally endearing.
