New Paper Dolls Using Sunny Carvalho Stamp

I just purchased a new doll face stamp designed by Sunny Carvalho. Her face is similar to the Mindy Lacefield face stamp I posted a couple weeks ago.

I stamped the face on some water color paper and used my Peerless watercolors to color in the faces.

I added a body and legs and some embellishments. These are my finished paper dolls I gave out at my last class.

Hope you had a great weekend!

New Paper Dolls Using Mindy Lacefield Stamp

I recently bought an adorable Mindy Lacefield face stamp from RubberMoon stamps and went a bit overboard and made the following paper dolls.
I stamped the face a bunch of times on some water color paper and then painted the face with Peerless watercolors. Then I created some fun dresses and drew in legs. I love all the different outfits!

I decided I wanted to use these doll images to make tags.
 I used acrylic paints and created abstract designs on the tags.
I was having so much fun, I painted lots of tags.
I stamped some designs on top of the acrylic paint and then added my paper doll images. These are my larger tags, measuring 2 1/2" x 4 3/4".
Then I also made a set of small tags. These measure 1 1/2" x 3 1/4".
If you like, I'll sell a set of 10 larger tags for $30 and the smaller set of 10 for $20. No two tags are alike. There are 10 different paper dolls.  I hand painted and stamped each tag. I photocopied my original paper dolls and reduced them to fit onto the tags. The tags are also coated with clear acrylic. Email me at if you're interested in purchasing them or have any questions. 

Thanks to Stampington, I was also recently published in the latest Somerset Studio Gallery.
 My mini art journal was featured.
This book measures about 1" wide and 1 1/4" tall and about 1" thick.
Stampington also featured the projects I made using ProjectLife cards with my own Paige doll designs.
The two projects below are angles made with china doll head images.
Lots of great projects and ideas in this issue! 

I hope you had a great weekend. I'm so happy summer is here and the kids are out of school and home!

Go Warriors! Yep, I'm now watching basketball and enjoying the finals. :-)
