Kokeshi Nesting Dolls

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new follower :o)


For today's card I've used the Kokeshi Dolls digis from Simply Sweet Stamps.

They put me in mind of the wooden nesting dolls you can get so I had a little play around resizing and flipping them then lined them all up. I removed the white background around each one using the CutOut Studio tool in CraftArtist so they didn't overlap each other.

The sentiment (also from the set) fits nicely in the top left and I added one of the cherry blossom clusters over the top as well as individual flowers for the hair (again, I removed the white backgrounds).

After printing onto Simply The Best card (Limetree crafts) I coloured the dolls in with Promarkers/Graph'Its

Pink Lobster, Rose Pink, Blossom, Pale Blossom
1270, 1250, 1230, 1210
9509, 9507, 9506, 9505, 9503, 9501, 9500
