You're One of a Kind
Good Monday morning! I wanted to play along with the MFT Sketch Challenge this week and decided to look through the challenge list to see which ones I could combine to make one card. It makes it more of a challenge that way, right?! I havn't done much crafting this week, so there were a lot of things I was interested in.... I was trying to combine "teacher's pet", girly but not pink, glitter/bling, flowers, shabby-chic/distressing.... Anyway this is what I came up with.
The image is colored with pencils and her dress is paper pieced. My original plan was to diecut the row of paper dolls and adhere them. Easy peasy, right? Not so much! The diecut paper dolls are a bit bigger than the stamp.... So I stamped the paper dolls on DP and cut them out. Oh my, that was interesting! As I was cutting I wondered what on earth I had gotten myself into....
To finish the card, I distressed the DP and added more paper dolls, a felt flower, some pearls and stick pins. I even decorated the inside of this one, using graph paper to play on the "teacher" theme.
