An ATC for Daphne

On Plastic Paradise we have a monthly ATC (Artist's Trading Card) challenge. This month the theme was "friendship". I have had the idea in my head for weeks, and I finally pulled out paper and glue yesterday to make the card. I am working towards the goal of having a card for each of my dolls, so I chose Daphne (a Candy Carnival Blythe) to be the featured doll this time. She doesn't get much camera time, even though she's one of my very favorite dolls--I need to do something about that!

The card is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches, the same size as a standard playing card.

Daphne thinks it is awesome!!

Custom White Dresses

I had a large custom order from an Etsy customer this week: nine white dresses with hand-embroidered names.

I used several different white-on-white cottons for the dresses, as well as several different lace trims for the hems, to give them some subtle variety.

I was surprised to discover that I had a favorite among these dresses--it's this one, "Olivia". The light blue paired with the white really speaks to me, and I think the embroidery came out especially well.
