* Vera Lane Studio: Rag Dolls

Happy first Monday in 2020.
I hope this year is all that you wish it to be.

Today is my DT day a Vera Lane Studio and we have a new digi set release. It's an adorable set of 3 Rag Dolls and a sentiment.

I made two cards:

This is Rag Doll 1 - she is coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. I made her background with Distress Oxides applied to an acrylic block, spritzed with water and stamped on to smooth white card. When the oxides were dry, white paint splatters were flicked onto the background and the edges stamped with black ink.  I used the Mesh Stamp #262 from AAll & Create. Rag Doll 1 was adhered directly onto the oxide background with torn washi tape strip to ground her and the sentiment was cut into strips, inked around the edges and adhered.
I stamped the Background Mash Up Stamp #210, also from AAll & Create, directly onto my 5 x 5 inch card, inked the edges of the card and adhered the oxide topper with Rag Doll 1 on top.

My second card was made in the same way using Rag Doll 3:

Look at her cute, stitched button eye!
Here is a close up:
