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...
