Tag Challenge #35 -- Tag Doll

I so enjoyed seeing all the birthday tags this week.   Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes you sent along with them.  It made my birthday extra-special.   There's a sampler on my side bar of some of the gorgeous tags that were created this past week.
I also promised a celebration RAK.   The goody bag this week goes to:
Suzanne (Stampersuzz).  
Suzanne, e-mail me your address so I can send this off to you.

This week's challenge is a bit different.  The challenge is to make a doll from a tag.  My doll is an artsy one, but your doll can be anything you'd like it to be -- cutsie, romantic, whimsical.  You can include arms and legs or not.  Just have fun with this challenge!


For my tag I created my arms from a birthday candle stamp, using two for each arm.   They did not  make good legs so I went leg-less.  I cut my hat in a triangle shape froma piece of paper I had previously stamped and then drew hearts down the middle.   The glasses are created from Tim Holtz' film strip ribbon (a little trick we learned on the cruise.)
For the doll herself I stamped some ticket stamps from Invoke Arts, masked them and then stamped a background with some Tim Holtz stamps.
I had so much fun creating this doll.  I hope you'll give it a shot this week.   I may even make another one!
