All Dolled Up!

Isn't she just adorable! Meet Vivienne the stamp set I won from a recent blog hop. I now have 3 grand daughters and the older 2 (6 yrs and almost 4 yrs) love to have Mema (up that's me, lol)  french braid their hair, so I thought I'd make a cute "purse" to hold the supplies.
     I have been wanting to try this stamp set so when Color Throw Down 100 had a challenge ( celebrating their 100th challenge let's hear a loud cheer!!!!) using blue, green, pink and real red I thought here comes Vivienne!
     The bag is from TBBM and is cut to fit page. I think the paper was from K&Company ( I went thru so many stacks I can't remember which one I used, lol)
     The stamp is Vivienne and friends from Peachy Keen Stamps. I had a blast doing this. I used LC colored pencils and gamasol technique for the coloring. I really want to learn how to use Copic Markers but I have a full plate right now. I decided to add some bling to Viv's dress and  added bling to her dollies bows. I even added bling hub caps! The background paper was a little busy so I adhered Viv and her wagon to a Martha Stewart tag and added some grass sticker to the bottom. To add a little more dimension I put some pink sequin flowers with a green brad along the bottom to make it look like they were walking the flowered path, lol.
     Finishing touches include a chalked tag with "you're a doll!' and some neat pink ribbon with a blue brad. I think they are going to love this. I know I will because it's more organized!
