Dolly Mixture

Moira's current Happy Daze facebook challenge is "Dollies" and here's my take on it :D

The base is a Russian doll money box I picked up in a local bargain store and have been planning on altering for some time - this is the smallest of a set of three.

The main image is a Scrolls Work stamp (which I love!!!) stamped and embossed on to tissue paper.
The doll was gessoed and then painted with acrylic paint then randomly stamped with two scroll type stamps from the Artistic Outpost Birds of a feather plate.

When everything was dry I glued on the stamped image with a glue stick then coated everything with multi matte medium.
I also glued on my embellies with this including the cute shrink plastic heart from a crafty individuals stamp :D
when everything was dry I gave it a quick spritz with cosmic shimmer mist.
Pop on over to the HAPPY DAZE facebook page for details on how you could win a £15 voucher for the shop :D

I am also going to add this to the Crafty Individuals blog challenge - Vintage with a heart.
