Mema's Crafts Bonus Challenge

Hi there
Welcome to the Prima Doll and Paper Piecing
"Bonus Challenge."
at Mema's Crafts


Don't you love a contest.There's a great contest over at Mema's Crafts that won't take much of your time and you could be the winner. Since I am one of the designers (an M&M girl), my design is among the submissions. OK so here's the scoop:

Background:
All of us M&M girls over at Mema's Crafts Design Team were provided one Prima Doll and a Julie Nutting Tag to use for this challenge.  We were not required to use the tag but the Prima Doll was definitely a requirement.

Additionally as an added challenge we were asked to use some type of paper piecing in our project. We could create whatever but the focus was definitely the Prima Doll.

Here is my submission:

I paper pieced her dress and used dimensional foam to pop the top layer of her skirt up. The bow on that darling dress is pieced with another darker blue paper. I also used that same paper to use on her shoes. You know we all have to coordinate our dresses and shoes. LOL  Her crown is topped off with silver glitter to give her that added sparkly touch. Ribbon and lace and a punched border piece finish the tag and I added a fluffy bow to top it all off.

SUPPLIES USED ON MY PROJECT
Stamps:  Prima - Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll  Stamp
Paper/Card Stock
:  Cream CS, DP (2 different ones for paper piecing), Julie Nutting Tag
Ink:India Ink
Punch Used:  Martha Stewart -Double Arches
