You Are Magical ~ Seventies Vibe

 Thanks for joining me...

Here's a magical doll card for the current paperbabe stamps anything goes challenge...

I had a total flashback to the seventies with my card, so as I was clearing a space to create and while putting bits away I got completely distracted by my paper stash and so when I rediscovered this vintage nonsense stack by WeR Memory Keepers well the rest just evolved from there.
I've used the doll body for the torso and the extra hole pieces I kept aside for flower centres. On Bristol watercolour card I cut the 3/4 view right head die and torso, then I've inked with ripe persimmon, crushed olive, and speckled egg distress oxides, next I stamped the face with the same distress inks and spritzed with water to get a nice inky look. I then went in with the face stamp again in black ink and defined a few areas with a paint brush and added a few details with the stamps from the hands set.
Her hair was so fun to create using the Willow template, cut out in brown cardstock and covered in super cute flowers, using the Potpourri die in matching cardstock, some of the centres were from the set and a few were from the body die.
I finished off the card with the Handwritten Stamp Set in white embossing on acetate as I didn't want to cover the rainbow. I had a couple of these go in the bin as I had a few issues with the double sided black foam sheets shifting in the die cutting machine.

I would love to enter my make in these challenges...

What a beautiful face. I love the retro feel to the flowers and how you positioned them in her hair. A really stunning card and a genuine beauty. Nice match for FFO.

Hi Kim, lovely to see you popping up at DCM! I was expecting “long neck” for your connection to the theme — fabulous card, definitely has a 70s vibe about it. The flowery hair looks fantastic! Thanks for joining us this week at Daring Cardmakers!
