Paper Cut Layered Portrait ~ Paperbabe Stamps Challenge

Hi, thanks for visiting,
We have a new challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
I've had the idea to create a dimensional paper cut piece for ages and using the jointed paper art doll dies and stamps made this so easy to put together. I love that you don't have to make a complete doll with these dies and stamps.
Her torso was cut using the Jointed paper art doll, body die. I then drew around the shoulders on another piece and trimmed with a little flourish to give her a layer of clothing and cover up the joint holes.
For the face I have used the Portrait head stamp and die, I've cut both the face and ears from plain cardstock, I didn't add extra layers to these I just added dimensional adhesive to create a good shadow.
Her hand was cut a few times, trimmed and layered, for example the thumb section is completely cut away with mount not that you can see that though. I created it without any stamping so it would have an unspoilt paper look.
Her hair was a little more involved though, I used the wonderful Aleesia hair template to draw the shapes, I drew the fringe four times and the back about twice. I then cut into the layers to give the impression of lots of flowing hair, trimming some completely away and adding a couple of layers behind her ears so the front wasn't too bulky.
For the face I actually stamped onto the cut face as well as stamping the features onto the back of the small pieces of coloured cardstock and  fussy cut to add some dimension to her face. You can just make out her lashes peeking under the cardstock, I wasn't going to fussy cut all of those lol.

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

Sympathy Card ~ Paperbabe Stamps Challenge

Hello and welcome,
The final days of summer holidays...
and getting ready for the new academic year?

We have a new challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
I've created a sympathy card using the cherry blossom, and Butterfly Pieridae, adding a subtle colour in the background with a hint of blue copic marker to highlight the flowers.
The tone on tone Die cut letters I thought would be just enough of a message.
