Diptych and Triptych ATC's

Today I thought I would have a go at doing a Diptych (the definition being a two part piece of art or painting). The backgrounds are again made using Adirondack spray washes, the stamps are catslife press boxy lady (and the corner distressed dots are from the PaperArtsy Nudes plate 4). Inside the stamps used are Lost Coast Designs Calligraphy doll on the left and Lost Coast Designs Crackle stamps and Stamps Away Eye on the right.)

And this is the Diptych inside.

I made this Triptych a couple of weeks ago (well it is a kind of triptych although doesn't look like the usual ones however as the definition is a three part piece of art I think it just about qualifies LOL!) The outside is like a bodice that laces up the front - when opened the head and legs are attached using eyelets and brads so that they swivel around. Stamps used are Lost Coast Designs Dolls accessories plate and Phrenology Heads.
