Anything Mixed Media/Creative Goes at We Love 2 Create

Good morning folks, how's your weekend going? I'm having a busy weekend doing some DIY .... not fun but it has to be done I suppose. Its inspiration time over at We Love 2 Create and as always our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes'. I've made an art doll using Stampbord, PanPastels and lots of bits and bobs from my stash. You can find links to all the products i've used at the bottom of this post. Our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous goodies from those lovely folks at Premium Craft Brands so don't miss out on your chance to win!!

I've used a Stampbord domino to make the body, coloured with Permanent Red Shade PanPastel and the stamped with the stars background stamp from premium Craft Brands using versamark ink before applying  Black Coarse pearl medium for some sparkle.

The face is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, I've stamped it on to a Stampbord inchie and coloured with PanPastels. I also stamped it onto smooth white card and coloured the hair with my Graph'It markers. i've used glue on bails and wire with a pretty red bead to join the two. I've dressed my little lady with some stripey ribbon and added a black velvet bow around her waist.

The legs are from one of my Prima Doll stamps, again coloured with PanPastels and Graph'It markers. I've used wire and beads to make her arms and used a little wire to make a hanger for her.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: anything goes
