The colours, of course, reminded me of Easter, and that reminded me of all the wonderful dresses I used to sew for my three girls at Easter (the 2 boys would get matching ties). In 1997 I did a lot of sewing of little girls dresses to sell, or custom make for friends, etc. At one point I decided to start taking pictures of them, and this is one of the newborn Christening dresses I had made. This one was for a friend who decided she wanted one in a very pale pink with cream. I used one of my daughters' dolls as the model, and because I had it completed 5 weeks before their daughter was born, I was able to enter this dress in the Madison County Fair (Rexburg, Idaho), along with other dresses I had made. I won so many ribbons that year. Every one of my entries won a ribbon! (I also made that blue and yellow quilt you see the doll lying on)
Well here is my challenge entry.
I had troubles with the alphabet stamps I used here. I just bought them at a garage sale and the Y & I wouldn't stay on my clear block! So they ended up a little off. I also think I may have gotten a bit carried away with the white Enamel Accents. I was having so much fun I guess.
Here are close ups.
You can't tell so much with the pink roses, but with this blue one you may be able to see that I used my Versa Magic pen to darken areas of the rose to give it a little more dimension than just layering it.
The other blue flowers I made using scalloped circles and cutting between each scallop to curl them. I then used Petal Pink Liquid Pearl in the centers. I also used the Liquid Pearl in the centers of the little white paper blossoms.
Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing something special to me, with me. Happy crafting everyone!
