Wednesday Stamper


"Button Dolls" was the challenge for this week at Wednesday Stamper. I had decided not to play this week as it's not something I thought was my calling, but this morning I woke up and the first thing that popped into my head was an idea for this button doll. All of a sudden I just had to make one of these -- and quickly before work. So here is my result. I rather like it.
The face stamp is by Stamp Francisco and the butterfly wings are by Cavallini.

Really neat for just popping into your mind and coming out quickly and BEFORE work. Like your clock, too. So glad you share with us!

She's lovely Louise! It's funny that you felt the same as me!! I made another, mounted on a plaque this morning, for a little girl who's been very ill... I know she'll love it (and her sisters will want one too! Oh dear!).
I'm going to be making a series of these for local Craft Fayres now!
