Crafters Challenge April Contest

OK! trying again. Have entered another wild and wacky project in this month's Crafters Challenge Contest.
This is Nature Nan, a brooch. Her face is polymer clay, hand shaped over a tinfoil ball then baked. Her hair is wool roving lightly needle felted and highlighted with glass beads hand sewn in place. She is emerging from a store bought artificial flower. She is sorta weird, but I like her.

Well she is not getting many votes. But there are some fabulous entries and competition is stiff.

Of course Nan and I would like your vote. But you may find yourself more drawn to voting for one of the other entries. In either case, we would appreciate your popping over to Crafters Challenge home page and placing a vote for the entry of your choice.

Thanks.

I laughed when I saw Nan...does that count as a vote?

Maybe the Smurfs need to be notified about this contest. Nan would be a shoe in!

I saw a bowl of felted fruit in SC. Thought of you, thought you could do better!

Those crocheted emoticons were sure cute, but I voted for Nan, because she's a beautiful color. Are you going to list her on Etsy?

Oh Jill, if it was a laugh of joy - then yes a laugh counts. :D

FElted fruit - ah yes a Carmine Miranda Hat! Will cogitate on this.

Off to find some Smurfs, what a good idea.

Yep, Min, am definitely lower on the cuteness count.

Nan has a cohort - Dapper Dan - but could not get a good photo of him and have not figured out how to get a pin to hold on the back of him.

If I get that puzzle solved and a good shot of him - maybe will put them up on Etsy. Had not though of that, but they might actually do well there. Thanks.

I thought your pin was the prettiest item. The blue is just stunning. I agree with Min. You should list it on Etsy once the contest is over.
Good Luck in the contest.

aww Marie, You are sweet. Thanks. My spirits and Nan's have indeed been boosted.

What color is Dapper Dan?

Glorious Hats said...

Oh Min, Dapper Dan is the same purple as Nan with a deeper purple. He is very devilish and has a vintage "pearl earring for hair, a lavender boiled wool collar and tie with another dangle "pearl earring" tie tack.

I'll try and capture him on pixels yet this week.
