Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring Prima Doll with Peasant 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 The Cutting Cafe!!!

Here is my project...

So seeing all the beautiful Prima Doll projects out there, I couldn't resist making another fun Prima Doll Tag.   I started out using the Mixed Media Doll Tag Pad as a base and covered it with some acrylic white paint on the front and along the edges.  I then added some pretty designer paper by My Mind's Eye called "Bramble Rose".  These papers have great backgrounds that look perfect for multi media projects. I especially liked this pretty fence background to lay my Prima doll against. I edged my papers using the Tim Holtz distressing tool and then some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Pumice Stone .  The Prima doll I used for this tag is called  Doll with Peasant Dress and I had a lot of fun creating with her.  I first stamped her using my Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored up her hair, skin and shoes using my Copic sketch markers. I paper pieced her pretty peasant dress and headband with the same designer papers.  I then added some Ranger stickles in "Diamond" to her headband, the ruffles on her dress and her shoes to give some added sparkle.  I wanted to add more dimension to my tag so I took some small pink and white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and added it behind her on the fence. I also added some leaves which was punched using a Martha Stewart leaf punch.  The burlap green butterfly is from my stash as well as the green flower trim at the bottom.  For the top, i crinkled up some white seam binding and sprayed it up with my Tattered Angels glimmer mist in "Cherub Pink".  I hooked it on to a wide eyelet and added a little heart with flower charm as an added embellishment. The "Hope" sentiment is also from a Prima Stamp set.  If you remember my 1st Prima tag, I used the sentiment "Wish". I have one more sentiment "Dream" to use so I will be making another doll tag soon for this! :)  I have to honestly say I wasn't sure where I was going with this tag when I first started but I'm really happy with the way it came out.  Also, with this month being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought the pink colors and the sentiment "Hope" were perfect for this!  I plan to give this tag to my aunt Jo who is a breast cancer survivor.

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.  I'd love to see your awesome projects!
