  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Stamp images and cut using dies.

    Step 2

    Begin to assemble the doll using the cut pieces.

    Step 3

    Using the dies makes it quick and easy to cut the exact dimension of the doll's accessories.

    Step 4

    Assemble broom pieces.

    Step 5

    You can also add different colors as accents. I decided to use purple cardstock.

    Step 6

    Your doll is now complete and ready for you to add your own details.

    Step 7

    To create custom colored trim, place trim in a plastic baggie and add colored spray. Seal the bag and press the color into the trim. You can adjust the saturation by adding more spray.

    Step 8

    Remove trim and dry using a heat tool.

    Step 9

    Cover a chipboard tag using white gesso and dry. Add texture by using the honeycomb stencil and heavy black gesso.

    Step 10

    Spray "Gilded" color bloom spray sparingly to the tag, dry.

    Step 11

    Add "Dark Velvet" acrylic paint to the outer edges and border of the tag as shown.

    Step 12

    Stamp random images using embossing ink. Spread embossing powder over the stamped images and heat emboss.

    Step 13

    Add the doll and broom using dimensional foam squares/tape.

    Step 14

    Add trim to the bottom of the tag.

    Step 15

    Add ribbon to the top of the tag, as shown.

    Step 16

    Spray white rosettes using Iris and Gilded color bloom spray. Add Art Stones as accents to your flowers and to various areas of the tag.

    Step 17

    Here you can see the beautiful detail that the Art Stones add to the design.

    Step 18

    Paint the art stones using "Fresh Orange" acrylic paint.
