Well . . . what do you think? I absolutely love the way she came out! I created this for my friend's birthday (her favorite color is purple). I found this paper pad at Michaels and knew I had to get it and hold it to make her something. It has the most beautiful peacocks and feather prints, several of them in shades of purple. This is the paper pad:
I used patterned paper adhered to the front and back of a chipboard tag (I painted the edges of the tag with purple paint first). Then I stamped, texture pasted and went all Lindy's Stamp Gang on it. After it dried, I inked the edges and added my Prima Doll whose dress and stockings are also from the paper collection. She has a bit of crocheted lace, a fabric scarf and a touch of glossy accents on her hair and shoes.
I finished off the tag with some I AM Roses, a stick pin I made with beads from my stash, a stamped note (Stampin' Up), a Recollections bling border, some charms from my stash and one I made from a Tim Holtz acrylic fragment circle with paper from the collection, some baker's twine, ribbon and seam binding and voila!
On the back side I added a pocket (Sizzix die) with a friendship stamped image (Stampin' Up) with my birthday note inside. Here is a picture of the back:
And here is her gift with the tag on the top:
I was quite pleased with the final outcome (and I think my friend was too!).
Thanks for stopping by
