Hello there, I'm here today with a little more inspiration for the current challenge theme of Paper Piecing at Make My Monday chosen by yours truly in the form of a tag using one of my favourite stamps at the moment, a Prima doll by the very talented collage artist Julie Nutting. Hope you like it.
made the tag for this myself using the rather natty tag style packaging
that comes with the doll as a pattern to cut my tag from thick white
card. This is mainly because the doll is an amazing 19cm tall so needs
something quite large as a base.
I coloured the tag by applying
Peacock Feathers Distress ink to some crumpled wax paper, spritzing on a
little water then swiping the tag over until it was covered in the
slightly diluted ink. I then applied more of the ink direct from the pad
with a sponge using my favourite Prima stencil - Flourish.
I stamped some of
the borders from the Prima Welcome To Paris cling set with Memories
black ink and added a couple of rows of faux stitching made with theTim
Holtz ruler and a fine black pen.
I stamped the doll on thick
smooth cartridge paper and just the frock element on some Crate Paper
decorated paper from the DIY Shop paper pad with black ink. I coloured
the doll parts with Aquamarkers then cut her out along with the frock
and added the frock to the image with double sided tape.
I made a
layered flower with some plain Prima flowers and a patterned one using
the same paper die cut using a Hot Off The Press Bodacious Blooms die
set. I added a small paper rose to the centre.
I assembled the tag
as you see, adding some cream crochet lace, a dotty black bow and some
Paper Artsy text with some hessian type wired leaves.
I hope you're now inspired to enter if you haven't done so already as it really is very easy to paper piece!
