The Kimmidoll Tag

Has anyone heard the Kimmidoll Story? Beware parents of young girls...I recently came upon this line of Japanese dolls in my local gift store. And I was smitten. I could see myself collecting these but on this occasion, my excuse for purchase was the 10th birthday of a special girl. I didn't think to photograph the chosen doll but to give you an idea, here's what a Kimmidoll looks like:

She stands about 12cm tall, and is beautifully finished.

I made the gift tag above in colours to match the doll I chose. I'm not much of a bling-crafter but I think the gemstones finish it nicely.

I'm still loving Asian-themed cards - have a few more to share at some stage.

Thanks for looking.

Always Remember

Here's a sympathy card I made recently. It's a simple lay-out to suit the mood of the moment. I used a couple of techniques, one called Baby Wipe Technique which takes baby wipes and reinkers to create the coloured background (a bit simpler than brayering but a similar end result). Then I took a solid stamp and did some "silhouette" stamping.

I made a few backgrounds while I had the baby wipe all inked up so you might see another card along a similar theme some time in future.

Thanks for visiting.
