Hobbycutz #40 Girly, but no Pink

I was thrilled to find out a month or so back that I had been accepted onto the Hobbycutz Design Team! My first creation for them is Girly, but no Pink! Well mine definitely doesn’t have any pink.

We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.

I created my tag for a friend who is having a really hard time at the moment, and I hoped the bright colours would bring some sunshine into her life.

I stamped a prima doll stamp onto one of the Prima Tag pad tags, and coloured her flesh and hair with copics. Then I stamped her again onto paper and made a mask. Have to say that a paper mask isn’t much use when you are spraying inks so I have got myself some masking film for next time.

I masked her off and sprayed dylusions randomly around her. The splodges are my attempt at sponging some silk paints through various stencils, but I was a little heavy handed.  There is also a pic below showing those stencilled bits up a bit better because the light has caught the mica in the silks a bit better in that photo, and you can actually see some definite shape to them in real life!

I paper pieced her clothes with Bo Bunny papers, and the ribbon on her dress and her hair band are real ribbon. I also stitched some tiny blue beads onto her headband and waistband. I outlined her with white pigment ink and added some metal flowers and brads, and some ribbon for the top of the tag to finish things off. Finally I used a rub on for the sentiment, and edged that with a fine black micro pen as it was a little lost on the bright background.

I love these prima dolls, and I think they could easily become an obsession. Perhaps people wouldn’t mind getting doll tags instead of birthday cards!
