Dress up time

Remember when you were a little girl and we got those fun magazines with dolls in that you cut out, along with all the clothes ( which came with handy hanging tabs)

Well I do, and I can tell you that my love affair with paper started around the time I was old enough to be let loose with scissors on those cute little paper dolls.

Imagine the delight Julie Nutting has reignited with her gorgeous new line of stamps.

Along with a lot of my friends at the shop I have been totally smitten by this cute new trend in stamping and can't get enough of these.

I have loads of body parts and frocks all over my workspace but for now, here are the four I have finished.

The tags were created from plain cardstock, and decorated with the new Tim Holtz distress paints

I used Dylusions stencils and Distress inks to create further details on the backgrounds

And the dollies were all paper pieced from scraps

The colours are a lot brighter and bolder than my usual style, but I wanted to stretch myself and have fun, experiment and think a little 'out of the box'

I think I may have a new addiction !
