One Stitch at a Time Challenge 53 Second Post

And my second post for this challenge.

This time, I had the pleasure of working with one of our sponsor's image, and I chose Matroyshka Doll no. 4 from The Stamping Boutique.

There are several designs of these dolls, and with a bit of editing, you can 'create' even more.

I altered the clothing on three of the dolls - removing the 'apron' and adding a bit of pattern. They're all coloured with Promarkers, although Sakura Stardust pen has been added to the detail on the clothing.

The papers are from Papermania, and I've used a Martha Stewart border punch and some ribbon. The flowers are hand made using some punches, Promarkers, glitter glue and they were spritzed with Glimmer Mist in Pearl.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Bearly Mine who want birthday cards,
Your Next Stamp where they want to see blue,
Top Tip Tuesday where they want birthday cards,
Craft your Passion where 'anything goes'
Sarah Hurley who wants flowers
Southern Girls who want flowers,
Daring Cardmakers where they want 'home made' embellishments - the flowers were all punched and assembled at 'home'!
Sugar Creek Hollow who want hand-made flowers - all the flowers were hand-made.

Now, go and check out the rest of the DT and their fabulous creations!
