Sassy Articulated Paper Art Doll in a Teacup ♥

Hello and welcome,
we have a new challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today,
and here's my fun sassy jointed paper teacup art doll.
I used the Eileen Hull Teacup die, it's currently on sale. I thought it would be the perfect vessel for one of my articulated dolls, the handle 'holes' make the cutest heart when put together.
I created this sassy jointed doll, using firstly the doll body, the amazing paper brad and doll hands dies and stamps, cut out in a dark brown cardstock and details stamped in black ink.
I drew and cut out her hair using the Hollyhock hair template in canson bristol board which is a much lighter weight. I then added colour using my copic pens.
I opted for 3qtr view right head with a touch of coloured pencil to bring out her details
She is dressed in cute top created using the heart neckline, I added balloon sleeves just to the forearm and finished off with simple leggings, all cut from vintage doll patterned papers. I've added the cutest glitter pumps and bows in her hair.

and I would love to enter my project to these wonderful challenges too...

It takes a village of stamps to create a cute doodle background...

We have a new challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today,
and here's my fun card with a super cute doodle background.
It's kawaii inspired, but I guess anything can look cute when they have eyes and a smile. I used yupo paper for a change, so I ended up using archival black ink as after some testing that one dried quickly enough so that I could add a mask to it.
I happily stamped away, using masks to give foreground and overlapping layers. My pops of doodling might need some work, there is lots of inspiration and tutorials online. I used my posca pen as after a few tests that worked on the yupo the best, it dries very matt.
as you can see I used many stamps to get all the cute images, the tree hugs, high in the sky, folk fabrique, the designa adorimals set, cute nativity, the bottle of, sugar skulls, and finished off with the adorable kawaii face set to give each character their fab expression. I've die cut the 'smile' sentiment, in fine type and added pen detail. 


and I would love to enter my project to these wonderful challenges too...

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ Anything Goes

Hello and thanks for visiting, we have a new challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog,
a fun anything goes...

I've created this single layer card front, using the dinky collection.
I decided to extend the long loose wave hair to flood the bottom area and create flowing hair. I wanted a solid area and painted in matt black acrylic.
The female face dinky stamp set to coordinate and coloured in watercolours. I've simply given an impression of a top, with a V-neck.
There is plenty of room for a sentiment of maybe even a galaxy effect on her dark hair.

Fae Jointed Paper Art Doll Inspiration

Hello everyone!!!
Hope you're keeping well and safe during this transitional time,
this is the first week both of mine are attending their school/college ♥

seeing as there's still plenty of time to take part in our current AG challenge I thought I would share my fae doll project...
She's settled on some flowers, I've used my copics to colour her, I went for an ethereal blue skin with hints of floral markings and tattoos, using the decorative adornments from the hand stamp set as well as the leaf from the face set.
Her hair I've created from kraft cardstock and have drawn white lines to represent hair, it's in two layers and it can sit on her shoulder or behind her too. The wings are something I am working on, I've based them on my winter fairy wings, which I still love, I've cut them from vellum to keep their lacy delicacy.
Her outfit has been completely made up by die cutting lots of leaves(an old poppystamps poinsettia set) from the vintage doll patterned papers and then layering, I have added a little sparkly detail to the edges, which you might just be able to make out.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ Anything Goes

Hello everyone!!!
Hope you're keeping well and safe...
We have a new challenge up on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
I was creative with a needle and embroidery thread this week, using the 3/4 view micro fringe hair templates, with the closed eye face stamp, along with the dinky hands stamp set. The tattoo was created using the blossom stamps,
It's been many years since I've sewn anything, and this is probably my first embroidery, I used to sew with my mum. This kit from Stitch Happy helped so much. It's certainly given me the urge to try another, my couching stitching definitely needs work and you can certainly see some tension in quite a few of the stitches.
