May is a busy month with birthdays for family and friends.
I decided to make a paperdoll for a friend who has now celebrated her birthday, a doll featuring Character Constructions stamps.
The dolls can be deceiving in height as she is quite tall, sorry I didn’t take measurements but I am guessing she could be about 10″ in her stocking feet!
All the stamps inked up for this paper doll are from the most recent set, Paris Flea.If they are new to you then to give you an idea of how stamps can be used to bring character,
All are stamped and fussy cut, which can actually be quite relaxing. I try to stamp a bundle of doll parts and then have some relaxing time doing the fussy cutting.
Here the Eiffel Tower is adhered to her head along with another stamp, the bow.I played around with the arms and bodice as they do not belong to the original stamp of this girl. From her waist to the top of the Eiffel Tower, six stamps were used to form this part of her.
Rhinestones bring a touch of sparkle to her bodice.
With this being an alternative to a birthday card, I stamped sentiments to dangle from her wrist.
A quick post to start this week.
I always appreciate your visits and always take the time to read your comments, so thank you.
A final note to say, if you are interested in Paris Flea or any of Catherine’s designs and live in the U.K., she will dispatch to the U.K.
