Matryoshka a beautiful word

Rosie sent me these today she said she just had to have ago and I am so pleased she did they are both so arty, thanx for sharing them with Rosie.
Anyone else still wanting to have a go please just email me them.
I had an Email today from a lady by the name of Larrie and this is what she wrote.

Hi Chris,
I've just been surfing for ideas for an monthly techniques ATC swap I host on trimcraft forum and I saw your Russian dolls. Would you mind if I listed this as an idea for a swap and did I read there is a template?
With your permission I would post your site as inspiration and information.

Yours crafting

Thank you Larrie for your email and no we don't mind you using them.. I will email you.
They are going to breeding lol.... ARE THEY ABOUT TO TAKE OVER BLOGGER?
.... these are the 2 little ladies that started all of this off...just thought I would remind you what they look like. :))
The 1st one below is Chris' she gave it to me as a pressie and I just had to have a go and it all just went crazy after that :))))
My Russian Doll below...followed by a little something I have been playing with today.. my challenge for this week :))) I was reading a magazine with a female covered in artistic tattoos and it gave me this idea....I drew around my hand and just went for it with the ink pads and the stamps (you want to see the mess of my kitchen). The female stamps used
are from the Retro Women set 1 from Tandas Stamps.. You can check them out by clicking on the logo on the right. My challenge to you this week is to have ago doing the same ...send us your hands by email and we will put them on the blog on Friday.
Because this was scanned it really doesnt show off the lovely gold pen doodles, if i get a better pic I will change it over.
Thank you to all who took on the RD challenge it made my week.:)
I would love for you to join in again this week.

thanx Chriss x

Rosie's Russian dolls were gorgeous. The hand is another great idea from the muddled mind of a manic crafter!!! Do you use your kitchen for cooking Chriss? LOL.Do I get to tatoo my actual hand or just on paper?!?!?
Should be an interesting challenge as ever. Much love.Denise DBX
