Summer of Color Week One: Alice Paper Doll

For my first Summer of Color project I decided to do paper piecing since paper crafting is my main medium.  Of course we can do a series of something similar or go with something totally different for each of the six weeks' of prompts.  Right now, in week one, I'm thinking of making six paper dolls.

Week One's color prompt is

Aqua blue, yellow and a pop, splash or smudge of hot pink

I've also signed up for the Mad Tea Party in July so I'm doing double duty here, creating Alice in her tea party frock.

Materials: Julie Nutting Doll Stamp by Prima
Tea Party digital papers by Samatha Walker which I won from Gecko Galz.
Martha Stewart keys
Crafty Secrets sentiment stamp
Copic markers (on hair) Y11, Y15
Pink ribbon from Lickety Split
pink gems from stash

Entering these challenges this week ( I have 2 new ones through Challenge for Days):

Tag Along Challenge #42 Use Pink A Little or a Lot
A Little Bit Crafty:  Child's Play
Crafts Galore Encore June Challenge:  Use a stamp or a digi stamp

Adorable paper doll. One of my favorite pastimes as a child was making paper dolls and houses. You are so clever to make the items fit in several challenges. I do that a lot. Such fun!
