More Manikin Doll Kits and Glitter Galore!
Happy Saturday everyone! We have some super fun new goodies in the shop including more Manikin Doll Kits featuring several Coffee Break Design favorites, more new Inka Gold colors, Distress Inks and tools, Distress Glitter galore, and a few other Ranger products. I hope wherever you are, you are warm and safe. It's supposed to be 42 degrees here today - heat wave!
I had a blast playing with a few of our new Doll Kits. You may recognize them from several other Coffee Break Design products. Now they are larger and even more fun to play with. And it's no coincidence that they were perfect for more play with Gelatos! To make my dolls, I colored the included white Cardstock Paper Cut with Gelatos (the Gift Set includes a perfect skin tone) cutting the Paper Cut as needed. For the Muscle Man's shorts, I used part of the Paper Cut as a template - the red sparkly bit is from the cover of a Rolling Stones Magazine. I never throw away beautiful papers! I finished off the pieces with some stamping, collage, and stenciling, and then attached the bits using Glue N Seal. (I love that brush top lid!) The Cigar Label I picked says "High Grace Hope Chest". Perfect for Mr. Muscle Man!
Supplies Used: Medium Anatomical Position Woman Doll Kit, Medium Muscle Man Doll Kit, Fairy Doll Head Paper Cuts, Psychedelic ATC Stencil, Cigar Labels, Collage Sheet DP313, Gelatos Gift Set, Washi Tape, Glue N Seal Matte, Sharpie Paint Marker White and Black, and Colored Valentine Word Paper Cuts
