Chocolate Baroque: Baby Dolls

Good morning, friends. I'm back with project featuring the new Babushka stamp set. I have to admit that at first I found it uncomfortable working with these image. I just didn't know what to do with them. But I've come to learn than when in doubt Clean and Simple is pretty good bet!

To create the background I used WRMK Whimsy embossing folder and inked the edges with Aged Mahogany distress ink.

I stamped the 3 dolls separately with Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White cardstock,  coloured using Graph'It alcohol markers and fussy cut before adhering to them to the embossed background with foam tape. For added sparkle I applied Stardust Stickles to their head scarves. I deliberately kept this card super simple and without extra embellishments, which makes it perfect for mailing.
