Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring Prima's Doll with Ruffle Dress

Happy Tuesday Blogger Friends!  Hope you're all having a fabulous start to your week!  It's time for another Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge and this week is the favorite "Anything Goes"!!!

Our fabulous sponsor for this week's challenge is  Shape EZ!!!

Here is my project...

Okay so Laura just got these Prima Doll stamps in the store recently and I was sooooo excited to finally create using one!!! I decided to make a tag and I started out using the Mixed Media Doll Tag Pad which is the perfect size for these beautiful doll stamps. I edged my tag using Black Soot Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  To add to the background, I took some pretty Prima Marketing paper in the Annalee  collection called "Poetry" and distressed the edges using my Tim Holtz distress tool. I decided to add a little bit of mixed media art in there so I added some gesso to the edges. I also added some medium sculpting paste over my Crafter's Workshop chicken wire stencil and then sprayed over it using my Tattered Angels glimmer mist in "Cherub Pink".  Not sure if you can see it too well but I thought it gave a pretty cool effect!  Now for the doll herself, I used Prima's Doll with Ruffle Dress and she was so much fun to work with.  I first stamped her using my Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored up her hair and skin using my Copic sketch markers. I paper pieced her cute dress and headband  with the same designer papers using the back side which was a little darker than the front.  I added some white flower pearl trim to the middle of her dress and then some Maya Road pink flower trim to her top ruffle.  I also added one piece of the flower trim to her headband which I thought looked really cute.  The "Wish" sentiment is also from a Prima Stamp set.  The beautiful flowers and butterfly are a combination of Prima and Kaiser Craft.  For the top, I added an extra large eyelet and ran some rose toned fibers to accent my tag. To finish it off, I added a cute butterfly charm attached to the top using a vintage garment pin. I'm excited with the way my tag came out and really love these dolls!
