Dressing Dolls

Hello to you all,well My bedroom door panels are getting nicely filled, I have yet another wooden plaque to share...I have used one of the Julie Nutting dolls for this,coloured with Pro's and fussy cut then I stamped again onto a scrap of linen material for her dress....
For the background I first gave the wood a coat of Gesso  then painted with some fresco acrylics, tore a piece of some scrap backing paper and stuck that down.
I then painted through a stencil for the leaves  gave it all another light coat of gesso to tone it down before sticking everything in place and stamping on some text. I hope you like it.xxx

This is stunning Doreen,I do love how you do such a wide range of art,it's so interesting to see what you create next! I do love the colours on this,just a quick question Doreen, what ink did you use with the promarkers as I know that the Archivals 'bleed' with the promarkers
