Mon Amie

Hello Everyone
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!
lynnemoncrieffoneAll 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,four
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.fiveI 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.three
With this being an alternative to a birthday card, I stamped sentiments to dangle from her wrist.
sixA 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.

    Playing around with the CC stamps to make your own version of paper doll is so much fun. I do love the new Paris Flea stamps! You have created a very charming Parisian beauty, Miss Lynne! The hat is to die for! I also stamp many body parts at one sitting and love to sit cutting out the parts and listening to some of my favorite music. I do love that vest with sparkling rhinestone buttons. Also the script background is a favorite of mine. Thanks once again for sharing with us. inkybru xx

    Oh, another paper doll beauty!!!
    Love this one Lynne, though a little bit less than mine lol.. Just because mine is mine, and really fabulous 🙂
    Do you know if she will also dispatch to France, and at a not too expensive price??.. Guess No, but we never know… These tall stamps are really amazing, I love them!
    And the way you work with them is so charming Lynne, here again the details and delicate colours are gorgeous.
    I want to answer to your last mail too, thank you fir all the details about the infusions! But tonight I’m just exhausted 🙂
