Halloween Paperdolls!

I purchased the Sizzix Die, Garden Fairy, Movable by Susan Tierney.  I thought it has lots of possiblilites and I wasn't wrong!  It measures about 10" tall completed.  The paperdolls received such a warm welcome, they are going to be a class at the Artsy Soul in October.  Here are the samples, made from chipboard, paper cut from the die, fabric, crepe paper, embellishments  and printed faces from stamps and
my own renderings.  Aren't they cute?  Lots of fun!

I am also in a Butterfly Doll Swap and thought this would be the perfect starting point.  I made her out of fabric with a stiff felt base.  Her face is  one of mine, I scanned then reduced and printed on fabric.  Her skirt is fused fabric also die cut with sheer silk crepe chiffon between the layers. Her crown is cut from a soda can.  Her scepter is molded from paperclay as are its wings.  Colored with markers and various mediums then coated with Judikins Glaze embossing powder.  When molding the charlotte, I put a doll needle inside to create the hole so I could put wire in it, but when she air dried, I couldn't get the darn thing out!  So, a bead is covering the eye! She was mailed off today.  Hope whoever gets her likes her!
