Just in Time for Valentines Day




I just finished a doll that was a last minute creation. I was playing around with a new cloth head and face and put a hole in it! Since it was already stuffed, I thought I would do a clay/cloth over as practice (which I need!). And lo and behold, The Red Queen aka the Queen of Heartless, was born. She is not as evil looking as I had hoped, but not too bad. As she progressed, I read of a process to create a textured finish on grunge board by Kat, a fabulous mixed media artist and I was inspired to create the crown. I used lots of products by Ranger Ink I usually use on my cards including Stickles (glitter glue that is very fine and sparkly) and Liquid Pearls (Dimensional paint). Her eyes and lips are coated with Glossy Accents (similar to Crystal Lacquer)and her eyelashes are held on with it. Her "makeup" is Perfect Pearls (a mica powder that is sort of self sticking) Raspberry sparkle for her blush and an overall coating of Pearl. I also used the Rander Inkabilities pen for the whites of her eyes and the light of life dot. These are by far my favorite pens for this purpose. Her fingernails are Stickles as are the accents on the lace around her skirt hem and on her shoes too. So Happy Valentine's Day!
