Be Mine (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Thank you if you made it through to today for the sixth and final Valentine paper doll.
Be Mine paper doll is approx 3.5″ x 8″
(All paper doll stamps are Character Constructions)
For some reason, her face makes me smile!
Here she is with her pretty dress, with lace trim and a touch of sparkle.
A wooden heart with crackle and of course, PaperArtsy Fresco paints with a Redlead sentiment declaring her adoration for her Valentine.
I’ve noticed I seem to like to bundle tags and sentiments, to suspend from the wrist of a paper doll.  Not sure why I feel the need to do this, maybe it is just another way to adorn them.
This crinoline stamp is a “must have” for paper dolls and it is versatile because there is no reason it then cannot be layered with tulle, lace, net, whatever you can lay your hands upon.  The ribbon, which I pleated was another way to add detail to the skirt.
Thank you so much for visiting.  If the paper dolls brought a smile to your face then I am more than happy!  They were such a joy to create, then to have them published was such a wonderful feeling.
Soon, I will be sharing another, much smaller collection of paper dolls, again which date from last year but for now, posts return to normal on Sunday with my regular That’s Crafty DT post.
Have a lovely weekend.

    This one is totally my favourite girl! She reminds me of my Great Aunt Gwendoline Ivy Montague. I think that this name fits your girl too! Gwendoline Ivy always had a twinkle in her eye into her late eighties, and was never afraid to express her views, in the loveliest manner. I love the combination of all the textures And the touch of sparkle, which, to me signifies the flash in the eyes. Gorgeous. Will keep this one in my pics and close to my heart! 😘 Xx

    What a super lineup you have shown us this week! This precious pixie face just overflows with wit and fun. What a gorgeous dress you have created for her. The laces, tuille, and pleated ribbon speak of hours at the dressmakers boutique. 🙂 The wonderful background you have used on the heart is so complimentary to her and the theme you have chosen. All your Little Dollies have been very lucky to be shown with such exquisite colors this week. Thank you for the Dollie Parade this week, Lynne! inkybru xx

    Sorry Lynne, I am playing catch up… This lady makes me smile too, she has a rather cheeky grin, as if she knows a naughty secret and I love the way you have dressed her, the crinoline is softened by the beautiful lace skirt and I love the delicate flower she is holding. As always, beautiful work! Hugs, Anne xx
