Kadoodle Daisy and Dan - Victorian dressing up day

I was so happy to receive a new DT package at the weekend from Kadoodle which contained these two wonderful Daisy and Dan stamps from my fellow Kadoodle stamp designer, Sandra. They're gorgeous and come in a variety of outfits. I already have Sandra's Wizard Dan stamp and I love her Pirate Dan and Red Indian and Princess Daisy, actually I love them all as they're so versatile and can be used in so many different ways. Wonderful for decoupage and lovely to colour. If you have a moment have a look at Sandra's fantastic new blog, she's so very talented, and it's full of inspiring ideas to use her stamps. Well I hope I've done Daisy and Dan justice today with my Victorian Dressing up day card.

Quite a labour intensive project but I enjoyed it so much. Daisy and Dan are paper pieced with papers from the DT Kit. I love the houndstooth check paper and couldn't help making Dan's whole suit with it. They're both coloured with prismacolor pencils and decoupaged. I freehand cut the curtains and attached some cut up paper doilies for the lace underneath. The dressing up box is a piece of white card cuttlebugged with the distressed stripes folder then sponged and doodled. Some DT papers where cut and doodled to give the impression of material falling from the box (hopefully)! I sponged the card blank with Ranger distress inks, doodled planks for the floor and a window. The card was assembled and then highlighted with a Sakura silver pen. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
