I finally got the chance to finish off the last swap I had started - my I am a Nut for Julie Nutting Doll/Tag swap. I had the same partner for this one as for the Triathlon swap so wanted to get them done to mail out together. I am pretty happy with how these came out.

I decided I wanted to give her two different types of dolls - I wanted to do one with paper piecing and then the other one I wanted to colour with my Copics. I decided to do the card as the paper piecing one and I was even able to do a little matching dog to go with it. The first step was to do the doll/dog.

Then I had to put the card together. My card ended up a bit bigger than the envelope that was supposed to go with it, so I ended up finding a bigger envelope and then just decorating it to match the card. I hope my partner is happy with it!

Then I finished off the tag for this swap. I used some texture on a basic tag and added some of the Finnabair Art Alchemy paints to give it some shimmer. I then coloured the Aubrey Julie Nutting doll and added some sparkle in a few places to make it pop. I added embellishments and flowers to finish off the tag. Here are some close ups as well as the whole finished tag.

I was able to get everything in the mail yesterday - which was the mail out deadline! Pretty proud of myself.

Now I have a few more swaps to start and my top hat to finish! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!
