This is Lena a Think Pink Guardian AngelShe's my entry for the Artisan Crafts category in the Think Pink V contest. [link]
She's had a complete facial repaint where all her original factory paint was removed, and then lovingly repainted with artist quality acrylics. Her hair is styled with two simple lace braids on the sides that join together with a hand beaded barrette. A closeup can be found here
Her wings were created with tons of hand picked white feathers, and is securely fastened to the doll.
The design on her corsette was tooled into very thin tooling leather and then the entire piece was painted pearlized white and & the design in deep pink. Tooling a think pink ribbon that small was a challenge! *grin* It laces up on the side with gorgeous nylon thread through tiny silver eyelets. Her skirt is made from a gorgeous pink crepe that has been hand embroidered with a blanket stitch.
For her shoes, I made her viking/guille boots from thin silver leather & painted the edges pink. A closeup of them can be seen here...
I named her after my grandmother, who lost her battle with cancer way before I was even born. She's always been my Guardian Angel.
