Prima Paper Doll and Watercolour Background

I absolutely love the Paper Doll stamps by Julie Nutting, put out by Prima!  If you haven't seen her book, Collage Couture, it is a must-have for sure!

For week 2, Day 5 of Summer Card Camp 2 we were given 6 new colour combos to work with. I must say I like having 4-5 colours to work with! It is easy to coordinate the ink, paper, and markers, and the card comes together so easily. I used the second colour combo, omitting the blue.

I stamped on watercolour paper and used Tombow markers to colour in the doll stamp. For the background I used a technique Jennifer McGuire recently showed on You-Tube (see below) with Tombow markers and a baby wipe - so cool!  I heat embossed the butterfly stamp with white embossing powder and stamped the sentiment with black ink.

Hope everyone has a very happy, crafty weekend!
