Let Your Hair Down with Paper Nest Dolls

I have a very sweet project for you today. The rubber stamp that I used today is from Paper Nest Dolls, entitled “Let Your Hair Down” Isn’t she the cutest? Christine Young is the designer and artist. Check out her shop. She has rubber stamps and digital images available.

My first thing to do was the Copic coloring and finding a die to use. I settled on a Spellbinder’s die and my Copic colors are:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 13, R20;
Dress: BG10, 11, 13, 18, T5, and
R21, 22, 29;
Hair: Y23, YR21, E15, 18;
Roses and flowers in hair: R21, 22, 29,
with gold gel pen for accents.

My oval frame was cut with a Spellbinder’s die out of Ocean Mist 100# cardstock from Gina K Designs. I also used Gina K’s “Here Comes the Sun” designer paper for my background. As you can see in the picture, my card layers are the designer paper, Gina K’s 120# White, and more of the Ocean Mist. My final touches are the flowers and flat-backed red pearls, all from my stash.

“Let Your Hair Down” will be entered in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create – Anything Goes w/optional twist
All Sorts Challenge – Hearts and/or Flowers
