Guest DT at Oozak.

Hello all!
       Happy 1st October :) A gorgeous day is forecast here today which is great but where on earth did the last 9 months go????  Anyway my post today is for the Oozak challenge blog where I was very pleased to have been asked to do the guest DT spot this week.  I love ordering from OOZAK as they have such a fabulous variety of products and you always get super quick delivery!

      I used my new Prima Mixed Media Doll stamp and after stamping her onto white cardstock, I used masking fluid to mask her (stating the obvious!) and then stamped the background flowers with white embossing powder, blending some Distress Inks over them once heated and set.  I added a few more stamps to the background using the same Distress Inks and then rubbed off the masking fluid to reveal the "naked" or uncoloured doll image.  I coloured her skin and hair with Copics and paper pieced her dress and hairband and added a few adhesive gems to the background flowers.

    I would like to enter this into the challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday , Chocolate, Coffee & Cards , Wags 'n' Whiskers , LadyBug Crafts .

           Thanks so much for popping in today :)
