Stand tall

 Good morning, our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' starts today- this fortnight the theme is 


I hand cut the tag shape from white cardstock and used distress inks and a stencil to make the background and stamped around the edges with a lace- patterned stamp and Twilight Versafine Clair ink. I used the same ink and stamps on the sentiment strip. The  dark blue 'ground' is torn wahi tape- proud of this because I never think to use it! I added the dark blue criss/cross die cut and the green flowers- the mall ones are punched and the larger one cut from DP. The Julie Nutting doll has been coloured with Copics, her clothes are paper pieced. I added some ribbon and tiny green gems to finish. 

For more inspiration please hop over to the Challenge Blog to see what the Sweeties have created this week. We'd love to have you play along- remember you now have 2 weeks to add your entries.

Thanks for visiting

enjoy your weekend.

This looks fabulous Chris, some great textures and love the paper piecing on the doll, I confess I am a hoarder of washi tape and hardly ever think to use, you have inspired me, haha.xx

Gorgeous tag. Love that image. I'm thinking of doing a series of Stamping Bella Oddball tags now.... only thinking about it though - given my track record I'll remember by Christmas.
