Winter Wear for summer - part 2

Hello, crafting friends!

Remember when I made this summery little card using Winter Wear by Concorde & 9th? Well it was so much fun that I set myself the challenge of doing the same with the other girl in the set! Come and see:

The girls are designed to peek over something - scarves, coffee, signs etc - so they only have the upper parts of their faces, but I figured that a little bit of doodling would result in a more versatile girl! The first one was easier because I only had to fill in the bottom of the face and neck; this one needed the top of her hair filling in too because she would normally wear a woolly hat.

But it was surprisingly easy as the style she was designed in is quite loose. She's a little bit wonkyy but hey, aren't we all! I did the doodling with a waterbased marker and coloured her with alcohol markers, giving her a pretty floral frock to wear stamped with the chubby little flowers from Stampin' Up's Under My Umbrella.

She looked a bit pensive so I set her against a cloudy background and stamped it with a reassuring  sentiment from Stampin' Up's Today's Tiles. The background was made with textured blue card stock, cut with a stitched rectangle die from Heffy Doodles, and the clouds were cut with one of the Puffy Cloud Borders dies from Lawn Fawn. 

Here are the girls together with the stamp set:

It was Inkspirational that set me going with this card with the word prompt Face. Thank you lovely ladies for all the fun!

I can't tell you how much fun it was making these cards - I just want to make a whole classroom of girls now, like the paper dolls I used to make for my daughter when she was small! Once I made her the twelve dancing princesses out of the fairy tale. They were dressed in Tudor style and my daughter loved them. She had her favourites and one in particular was played with so regularly that her head came off. Rather appropriately I thought!

Sending hugs,


  1. Sweet image and a lovely design.

  2. What a wonderful image, I love how you have "finished" her Vicky, beautiful hair and a lovely card. I had to laugh at the doll beheading.
