Art Doll

I've been itching to try one of these for ages. This is inspired by one I saw in an old issue of Take Ten by Stampington. I used stamps by Dawn Houser, Era Graphics, Elusive Images plus a big background wood-mounted stamp that bears no maker's name. I also used a fab metal crown that my friend Stephany once sent me a pack of.
And so, appropriately, I then made this doll into a birthday card for Steph using some of my favourite background papers by Basic Grey.

96th Birthday!!!

I made this card using Ten Seconds Studio tools and mold, acrylic paint, Stickles Glitter Glue, a flat backed gem, E.P. and Glimmer Mists along with Bazzill chips and the 'Stipple' texture mat by Carolines - oh plus, I'm afraid,.......a PEEL-OFF !!
Sometimes it's the best way to put numbers on a card - that's my excuse anyway. lol

I had one of those "ooooooh" moments when I lifted the texture stamp off my triple-embossed ring of chipboard - love this effect!
