Prima Doll and ICADs

As ever, thank you for the lovely comments on my altered clock for Our Creative Corner, I really appreciate that you take the time to look and comment!

Today I have used my new Prima Doll stamp and Prima tag and watch embellishment to make this:

Click on any photo for a better view.



I made the hanging to fit in with Hels Sunday Stampers, which is to 'make a hanging' and also  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the challenge is to 'stamp on anything other than plain paper'  It is not often that I can work out how to create something for more than one challenge at a time!


I started out with a hanging from Paper Artsy, they are a lovely size and very lightweight box shaped so ideal for painting.  The tag is a gorgeous Prima one which comes in a pack of 48, already lightly decorated with beautiful script.  I coated the hanging base with gesso, then modelling paste through various of Tim's new stencils and then Fresco Finish paint in Mocha Mousse.  I then covered the whole of the embossed base with the Prima tag, with the top part cut off.  I used the same Tim Holtz stencils and used Peacock Feathers DI through the mask and then Weathered Wood through the burlap stencil.  Love how these stencils layer up!


You can see the stencilling better here.  I also took an Indigo Blu script stamp and used the fabulous new Wendy Vecchi Archival ink in Cornflower Blue and stamped randomly over the tag.  I added a Tattered Floral flower (painted with Broken China DI and overstamped, in part, with WV Archival in Cornflower Blue).  The ribbon was ruched to give the doll something to stand on.  The doll herself is coloured with various shades of Distress Ink, fussy cut and raised with glue dots.




To finish off I added one of Finnabair's fabulous mini time pieces.  Inside the watch, which has a removable front I used a Tim Rub on and a chit chat word.

I made a little 'glass' front from thick acetate, added some chain and use a Tim metal tag holder which I poked through the top of the hanging and added more of the ribbon to finish off.  The watch and chain are removable to use as a handbag charm.

The 'time' wording is a Tim stamp which I stamped in Coffee Archival ink.

I know I keep saying it but I love how Tim's products can be used in both grungy and more feminine ways....





Now on to the ICADs, this was a swap organised by the very talented Astrid of Astrid's Artistic Efforts.  I have already shown one that I made and sent which you can see HERE.  This is the second one I sent, which has now been received and Laura seemed to like it.


I received the most wonderful ICADs from two very talented ladies, Joan and Elly.

In order of receipt, this is the one from the lovely Joan, who also kindly enclosed a second ICAD and also some beautiful napkins to use in my crafting.  I love this set of stamps that Joan used, it is now on my wish list:


The second is from the talented Elly who sent this amazing steampunk creation, the holder feels and looks  like real leather and contains some wonderful embellishments:


How lucky was I to get two such fabulous creations by two amazing crafters!  It has been the most wonderful swap, thanks so much to Astrid for organising it.

Finally, I got a lovely thank you from Dianne for sending her an ICAD.  She sent me this beautiful ATC, the butterfly has been stitched by hand and is gorgeous.  Thanks again Dianne for the lovely thought.


Apologies for the long post, I had a lot to pack in, hopefully you have not all been bored!  Take care, hope you all get lots of crafty time.  Big hugs,  Anne xx

  3. Hey Anne. Your Prima doll hanging is absolutely darling! I am getting hooked on those little beauties. I just ordered a few more of them for "playtime". haha Love your little peasant girl one. Just got her and can't wait to have a play with her. :) Thanks for the inspiration. Your little hanging is so cute. I also love your ATCs that you've recently received. Don't you just love Elly's originality? All of those ATCs are gorgeous though.... Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with us a Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. <3 Candy

  4. Hi Anne, I am never bored with your posts no matter how long they are as they are always packed with loads of detail of your fabulous makes. I liked the look of this Prima doll stamp when you bought it (even though I dont do faces and people)I love her floaty dress, it reminds me of one I used to have in the 70's, and your wall hanging is a perfect size for her to stand on. The mix of browns and blues is a great choice of colour, and thats a clever idea of making a detachable bag charm. The Icads you received are amazing lucky girl! I especially like the leather look one. Hugs Mo x

    I hope you have a good weekend

  8. I am so confused. I love you hanging Anne but what happens when you cover the base with gesso and them modeling paste and then paint it and THEN cover it with a tag. For some reason I just cannot picture that but then again I have never tried that!! It is a beautiful wall hanging - I just love those little clocks that you have used. It makes for a real neat embellishment.
    The ICAD that you sent to Laura is beautiful - I love the red and black together. Both the card and the envelope are outstanding Anne.
    And wouldn't I dearly love to make something like that leather looking holder. I hope all is well with you ..

  15. First of all, your posts are never boring, I love reading them!! Your tag creation is fabulous, that prima doll is so beautifully coloured and I totally love how you have done the background to the hanger with the stencils and stamping! (Love those Prima mixed media tags, they are so versatile, I just got a pack too...) Anyway, your ICADs both the ones you received and the one you made are stunning! Love the way you did your holder with Tim's die and how sweet of Diane to send you an ATC to say thanks.

    Have a great weekend and happy crafting!!

  16. I love your wall hanging, Anne. I also like to switch things up a bit and use Tim's things in a more feminine way, and you've done a lovely job of that here. Thank you for joining us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, "Stamping on anything but plain paper". ~Michelle

  18. It's always such fun to read through your how-to on your work. I've seen these dolls in the stamp stores, and wondered how they would be used. Well, now I know! And most beautifully too. Your background is so lovely (interested in that gesso you did!) All the added charms you selected, added so much detail to this wonderful hanging. I loved your ICAD too...so rich & elegant. You netted some beauties in return as well. Absolutely loved that marvelous butterfly. TFS & contributing to my on-going craft education! :-) Hugs

  38. Gorgeous creation Anne. I do love the look of those prima dolls. I missed out on the ICAD posting. They all look so stunning. Hugs Rita xxx

  39. I love your hanging Anne. I have used those box shaped hangings from Paper Artsy and they are very light, the Prima Doll tags are really nice and although they have some detail on them allowing you to use them as they come, it's not so heavy that you can't add your own detail. I love the colours you've used and the whole thing works really nicely. Keep crafting, Angela x

  41. Your Prima doll hanging is a gem. That is such a sweet doll and you have given her the perfect home. I like that those tags are pre-stamped with the script...that is a great idea...saves us a step!

    The ruched ribbon is perfect to "ground" her and all your inkyness is fab.

The background looks very cool with all of the layers and you have just convinced me that the Cornflower Archival is a must-have.
