Art Doll

Maggi on CC Swaps is running a paperart doll swap. A lot of fun. Here is mine.

Torso is made from a Formica chip, alcohol inked, stamped and some bellies added. Something odd happened with the black Memories ink and the alcohol ink: as I didn't like the effect,I rubbed the black ink off . Lo and behold it had a resist effect, the black ink came off and left the outline of the stamp white. I liked it so left it like that.

The face is am image from my collection, slightly coloured with chalks, and the headband is a bit of fringing. The neck is a bead (Thanks to Linda Strawn) wired to head and torso. The arms and legs are stamped with various 'doodle' type images.
