#132 Challenge Art dolls and diva's. I made a Prima ballerina

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi everyone, have you recovered from Halloween yet?
Gail, our team leader has come up with a lovely challenge for you.
Art dolls or Divas.
Super fun, let your braincells work hard for this challenge.

I made a vintage Prima Ballerina.
And this is what I used for it:

For the wings, LCD More bugs the bee.

1st layer of the skirt, LCD pieces of calligraphy.

2nd layer of the skirt, LCD pieces of architecture.

I used the Spellbinders art doll die for the legs.
And for the skirt the sizzix rosettes.

I stamped the stamps with Stazon Timber brown.
For the coloring, distress ink.
bundled sage,
victorian velvet,
tattered rose,
antique linen,
speckled egg,
scatter straw,
old paper,
walnut stain.
Water resistant fineliner, preferably in dark brown.
Nuvo aqua shimmer.
A small flower to glue on the waist

And this is how I made the prima ballerina.
First I stamped all the parts on white paper.
Started with a thin layer of Antique linen.
Then colored her with the pinks and speckled egg.
I colored her hair with Scattered straw.
I sponged the legs first with Antique linen and then with Tattered rose.
Then I drew shoes on the feet with the fineliner.
I colored the wings with Spackled egg and bundledd sage.
When that's dry, go over it lightly with Nuvo aqua shimmer.
With bundled sage the tip of the hat and details on the bodice.
I did the bodice twice and glued them with 3d tape on.
Now for the skirt that is completely stamped with Stazon timber brown.
Stamp the first layer with LCD pieces or calligraphy.
And the second layer with LCD pieces of architecture.
Sponge the edges with Walnut stain.

Now cut everything out and glue her together.
I wrapped a stick with washi tape and glued it to her back.
That way I can put her in something nice, maybe a nice plant.
Or put it in a nice bottle.

I hope I was able to inspire you and that you participate in the challenge.
If enough people participate, the prize is free rubber stamps.
Isn't that fun?
