Mrs. Stingheart



When I saw this design in Stampington magazine I knew I HAD to do it. The designer is Linda Warlyn but the photo attached is my rendition of her design using different papers, crochet work, etc. Lynda named hers Miss Stringfellow but I have named mine Ms. Stringheart as she is going to a great friend in California. It took me quite awhile to do this piece as I had a lot of stop and go's as life got in my way. BUT... she is done now and soon to be packaged up and "on her way" south. What fun.

There are a lot of layers and I also got to try out my clear encaustic wax on the whole background which I really like a lot as it is muted....yet needed. I also used swarovski crystals for the eyes, a birch wood rose, some buttons, and a vintage spindle for a little adornment. Also above the right eyebrow I have written Natalies name in black that replicate eyelashes...
