Mindy, Run Mad . . . .

Here is my namesake, one of the New Julie Nutting Doll stamps from Prima, may I introduce "Mindy". And although I am not as physically proportioned as she, I bonded with her immediately, and felt a connection like no other.

All of the products used on this tag, are New releases. The tag is from the Prima Hancock Park Tag Pad, the large fabric flower from the Prima La Tela Collection, and the tiny sparkly Dazzles flowers from the Tiny Flower Stickers pack from Hot Off the Press.

I colored Mindy's dress and hair with my copic markers, and added sparkle with corresponding Wink of Stella markers. The washi tape was added at the bottom of the tag, with the Dazzles flowers attached in various empty spots on the tag.  I colored the Prima fabric flower with Lindy's Stamp Gang Desert Moon Purple Sage Glitz Spritz before attaching to the tag with Fabri-Tac adhesive. The doll stamped image and framed verse were popped up with foam tape to give dimension, and the sage colored bow was attached with a pop dot.

I love how this doll image has "attitude" and a certain shyness, just like ME! The framed sentiment I used on this tag says, "Run mad as often as you choose, but do not faint!" I don't know who Julie had in mind when she named this doll stamp, but I will always "imagine it was me" as long as I live, and will enjoy stamping with her for years to come.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy your time with family and friends.Spring is almost here, and very soon we will be complaining of the heat of Summer.  At least we can dream, can't we?
