You color my world...

'Raggedy Girl Adorable' provided by Stamp Art Designs by Kathryne
Have always had a thing for Raggedy Ann dolls.  No idea why - I never owned one, they just amuse me!  I have a really bad time passing them up when I see one - so needless to say, I have a collection of them- rubber and digital.
Then I saw Marie-Clare's Freebie sentiment: "You color my world" and I had a spark of an idea...
Aud Sentiments is mid-week in a challenge to use "Any Sentiment except a Birthday".  The designers have prepared some absolutely beautiful ideas to spark your mojo - I highly recommend a look-see!  Stamp Art Designs by Kathryne has provided a really generous prize of FIVE images from her catalog... and you are allowed FIVE entries before Sept. 9!  Worth your time and effort for sure!

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
  • Red-Orange CS cut to 5.5 x 6'' size with a left hand fold for base card.
  • Two different DPs were cut 1/4 inch smaller and then torn on the diagonal and adhered to the base.
  • Four copies of the image were printed and using a Paper Sculpting technique, individual sections were fussy cut, colored with Copics, embossed from the back to round the section and pieces were adhered with glue or foam tape for dimension.
  • Faux stitching was hand drawn around the focal and sentiment panels.
  • Focal panel was then taped to a mat that has a border punch with a ribbon threaded thru & a bow added.
  • Mat and sentiment were elevated on foam tape.
  • Inside created with left over DP from front.
