This is a birthday card for my step-niece. I haven't seen her in "forever" and I miss her.
This draws inspiration from the IC challenge site today (Olive and Cocoa). I hung out in the kids section, as is my way sometimes :). This is a rag doll, from link 1. With colors, from link 2. The muse goes where it goes :)
And I am still continuing my love affair with the Dylusions line. I better -- I bought like $600 worth of most of her stamps, all of her inks....
This actually started out as a twinchie but the gal's head with no neck or body was just. too. weird. even for me.
Stamps: Dylusions, SU! Fabulous Phrases
Colors: Wild Wasabi, new SU! Coral, Shimmer White, Basic Black
Supplies: gel pens, snips, stamp a ma jig, some Friday night late night creativity and exhaustion :)
Thanks for taking a closer look, and blessings. I hope you get to stamp a lot this weekend.

That's so fun and whimsical. It reminds me of a particular style of story-book illustration. And I love the little folksy village in the background. I can totally see how the rag doll inspired you. I am way too literal when it comes to inspiration challenges, sigh...
