SDC137 Textured Backgrounds - A bit of a Dolly

The theme at Stampotique Designers Challenge this week has been chosen by Kay, and she has asked us to show some Texture this week.

I had some felt scraps in a bag from another project I had done recently so I decided to use a piece of that. I cut my dress shape and then felted it on a pad until it was fat and fluffy, to add a bit more texture to it I stamped onto it with the elements from Design cube by France, using paint and texture paste. I added ribbon legs, a head and crown. finishing it with a pin on the back to attach it to my bag.

I Used the following Stamps

Design Cube

Stampotique Rubber Stamps are available to buy from Stampotique originals .

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day, Carol Xx

I absolutely love this unique doll, Sue! You have given Gibi life and she is off on an adventure with you! A very clever "make" with, indeed, lots of texture!
