Art Dolls and Divas: The Original Diva of the All

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!

Welcome back to the Portal for the end of our Art Dolls and Divas Challenge.  This has been a fun one and Lost Coast has so many stamps that fit this category.  

I went with a tag for this one.  The tag itself is made with water color paper and shades of blue and green Distress Oxide sprays.  I sprayed my paper with water then randomly with my 3 different inks and let them run and meld together.  When this was dry, I added some black speckles and a black border.

The stamp I used for this is the Mona Flying stamp from Lost Coast.  I stamped Mona onto white card stock and fussy cut her out.  I then stamped her dress onto blue paper and her winds onto light green paper and cut those out.  I glued them atop the original stamped image and added some green stripes to her socks with a marker.  Her "buttons" are just little circles from a circle punch glued into place and I added two "button holes" with a fine tipped black marker.  

I did not cut her lovely "crown" with the original image but stamped it onto green paper and fussy cut it out, gluing it into place onto her head.  I added some shiny silver buttons to the tips of her crown and used a black marker to darken her hair just a bit.

The sentiment is from Carmen's Veranda's clear stamp collection.  I stamped that with black ink onto a small rectangle of white paper and affixed it as shown with some foam tape.  Final touch is a bit of green ribbon through the hole in the top.

You still have time to enter your Art Doll and Diva creations on the portal for a chance to win so free stamps, so come join the fun!
