Paper Doll Couture

I started this piece for last weeks challenge on Mixed Media Monday and didn't quite get it finished in time, so - I edited it slightly and made it work for this weeks challenge - Numbers.

I loved the idea of a paper doll clothing store so I stamped a dress form stamp 3 times and cut it out and made little outfits for each one.


Emma wanted to know who were those little dresses for? lol This is one piece that she really loved. She wanted to play with it - but I had to say, no! Hope you all had a fun and creative weekend! :)
