The Play Date Cafe - colour challenge PDCC104

This week over at
it's their '2nd Anniversary Challenge' & to celebrate
they have lots of lovely prizes to give out to lucky participants.

It was my first time joining in last week and I was thrilled to
get so many lovely comments and also a little award
for my blog - yay!!
I made the 'fab four' on The Play Date Cafe
Thanks guys!!

This week's (Anniversary) challenge is to use the colours
Mauve...Egg Yolk...Artichoke

What fabulous colours they are too!

I've decided that whenever I join in with these challenges
I will make a doll of some sort and mount it on a card
as I did last week.

As luck would have it I had some sari ribbon with two
of the colours already combined!
I machine stitched a few strips together to make the skirt.
The bodice is silver self adhesive tape coloured with alcohol inks
and roughly embossed freehand with a pointy stick.

Her shawl is more of the sari ribbon but with some felting yarn
meshed into it I did this with my new needle felting tool.
How easy it was to do too!

The background card is old music and book pages
coloured with distress ink and acrylic paint.

Her face is moulded from air dry clay and coloured
with water colour pencils and acrylic paint.
Her hair is mohair fleece.

(I've just realised I didn't give her any pupils in the eyes - oops!!)

Thanks for looking x
