I am so glad winter is over and summer is only a month (officially) away.  Everything is in full bloom and so pretty.

This month I provided the card kit but wanted to do something completely outside the box.  I had purchased the most adorable paper doll stamps and decided that I would send those out this month instead of our normal cards.  Here is a picture of the kit

I thought this was so cute!  Because I made a tag last month I thought how fun it would be to use these on canvas's just like She-Art by Christy T.  I used an 8 x 8 canvas which she fit on perfectly.  This was already started previously when I had too much paint out that I didn't want to waste so I had grabbed this canvas with a stencil making the green in the center.  I then just added my paper doll after painting her hair and skin the used some stamps to fill in the rest.  Here it is:

And a close up:

This next one I put my paper doll on the tag then put the tag on the canvas.  This canvas is bigger and I painted the background and tag with some acrylic paints that I found on sale at Hobby Lobby yesterday.  I then adhered some older brads that are shaped like flowers and a dragonfly then drew the stems, leaves and flying trail with a pen.  I added some fun paper that I found at HL to the corner as the colors were a perfect match.  I love how this came out it is so bright and cheerful.

Here are some close-ups:
I decided to make one more to show how versatile these paper dolls could be:

How cute is that book cover!

I hope you enjoyed this months reveal.  Make sure to stop over at ScrappinMojo to see what the other ladies came up with.

Thanks and see you next month!
