SHOPPING OUR STASH #301 Back to Basics

Welcome friends!
This week at
we are getting back to basics. Time to
put those dies away and do some

Here's the card I made:

 and the inside:

I started by stamping the image onto a white panel, coloring the face, hands, feet, ground and outline around the doll. I stamped the doll again on bits of orange, blue, and gray scrap paper, fussy cut, and adhered. (I did add shading to the hair with a marker first.)

In keeping with the 'no dies' challenge. I broke out a much neglected decorative scissors to cut 
the black frames. (Thus the reason they look like crap.)

Now it's your turn to show us your mad fussy cutting skillz! Just be sure to 
link up at Shopping Our Stash so we can admire it!
