NEW SHABBY CARDS !!


A card , for a friend, in my favorite tones,
and materials.
Using nature stamps and soft colors with lace and
beautiful old and new papers.


The head was long ago, a gift from my dear friend Lynne-
Have you seen she now have created her very own stampset ....
two very beautiful sets , called : Lynne`s Affirmations .

 I  used  crackle medium, onto it , and like it very much!!


Another spring card using the wonderful Infusions ,
an embossed dandelion seed-head, and different stamps.


So fun to play with the Infusions .


Today we have a lovely sunny day, after a very grey sky and
rainy day yesterday, it is good to see the light, again.

Happy Sunday to you all, 
Hugs and love

My latest BIRD book .


It seems I`m very connected to creating cards ,collages, and even books with birds,



and also this time, I couldn`t resist creating another bird theme journal. 


It is also still a love affair with old laces, -and fabrics.
The birds are all transferred to fabric.


And I added nature things, like old bark, feathers, 


Words !!


findings from the sea shore, and drift wood !!


I love the birds related stamps, I have , and used them on fabric , too.


Remnants from the ocean !!


Pearls and laces,


a piece of cord, found like that, on the shore,


and beautiful buttons !! 


She got a little bling , :-)


Love the tulle, and thin fabrics to see through .


And at last the back cover showing the wing of that amazing
appliqué bird !!



Thank you for following me, all the way to the bottom,
so many photos , but wanted to show every page, to you.

As you can see, I am in spring mood, and spend the afternoon cleaning up my new garden.
Everywhere the sprouts are saying hello, now, and I`m so exited to see what it is,
when blooming, soon .

I wish you all, a very wonderful weekend, dear friends.

Hugs and love from Dorthe

A WISH FOR A DOLL IN BLACK !

One of my very dear frieds, whom celebrated her birthday last week, 
-when asked for her wish, she said a doll in black !!
So off I went to the piles of fabric and laces , to see if I 
had something beautiful, in black. 
Black, not being the color I mostly use, made me think, it could
be difficult, but I found some beautiful piec es to use.


Tulle with embroidery , wonderful shiny pieces, pearls, and
flowers , -I was happy to see them form a wonderful dress !!

'
She got long black/grey hair, as well and a velvet hat.


She is now received ,and live far away :-)


The little heart was created for another friend,-
I love doing such tiny embroidered pieces, -the process
of slow sewing is so relaxing and peaceful.

This weekend we celebrate my dear Mathilde`s birthday,
which I look so much forward to.
So wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

Thank you all for your kind visits, they mean a lot to me, and are treasured !!

Hugs and love
Dorthe
