Amber Ink Project 2: Oh What a Doll!

Welcome back to another Amber Ink project!  Today I am showcasing two digiStamps: Oh What a Doll! and a cute princess babe.  These are separate images you can get at the Amber Ink Shop. This was my first *real* time venturing into digiStamps, even though I have used printed journalling off the computer.  And, I must confess I am no copic coloring goddess like many other crafters.  I actually sold all my copics awhile ago.  I do use watercolor pencils and like the effect, but mostly I paper piece stamped images.  So, I needed to see what I could do with this princess image to do her justice.

And, well, I paper pieced her! I traced her onto the Yellow Dot iPaper after printing out my page onto regular copy paper using something similar to a lightbox.  Then, I cut out her dress and shoe (as one piece), and her crown.  I adhered those pieces to the cardstock image I had printed her on and then finished coloring her with watercolor pencils.  Then, I die cut her image and a mat out of cardstock.  I printed the sentiment and die cut it as well.  The pattern paper was die cut multiple times with a scallop border.  Everything was adhered to the card base and the princess matted image was popped up.  Buttons, pearls, and stickles were added as finishing touches because she is, after all, a PRINCESS! :)

Enjoy!
