babushka 2

 Another play with the Babaushka dolls - I had some dark  blue card blanks left over from a workshop that needed using, and this is the final result.
The colours are more accurate in the rather dark scan of the whole card flat at the bottom of the post, the ones I took outside in the sun this morning are rather light, and my photo-editing skills are not up to the task of correcting the colour.

The images of the buildings were stamped onto the base card and again onto a piece of blue cut to match the centre panel in versamrk ink and embossed with copper EP. They were coloured using ann old set of H2O paints, as I have seen photos of Russian buildings with gold domes.
The centre panel had a copper mat before being glued in place.

The three dolls were stamped onto white card, coloured with marker pens and cut out before glueing individually onto the front of the card. the smallest one is glued flat, and for the other two the glue is added only to the card front - if you glue the dolls, then you can easily end up with the card stuck together!
This card uses a whole sheet of A4 card, and folds down to DL, so easy to post.
