Spirelli Copper Art Doll

I've been  on an Art Tag and ATC kick for a while and decided it was time for something a little different. This Spirelli Copper Art Doll was created for and is being featured on the second week reminder post of the Anything  Goes / Fit to Be Tied challenge on Art With No Boundaries.

This week like last week we are having two different challenges at the same time, an Anything Goes challenge and a special Bonus Round challenge called Fit to be Tied.We are also offering the Gentle Heart sentiment shown at the bottom of this post as a prize for the Bonus Round so be sure drop by and check out both challenges. 

My Spirelli Copper Art Doll was created with on of my soon to be released paper doll templates and the round toothed piece with the copper embroidery  thread framing her face is one of the shapes from my original Spirelli, Manual Cut Ready to Print Kit. The face is from a new series I'm working on at the moment. The copper and gold circle around her face as well as the copper and gold blow at her waist has been recycled from a greeting card, I love raised embossed texture on both. The photo doesn't do it justice, in real life it looks like embossed metal.

The A Gentle Heart sentiment on the right is the prized being offered for the Bonus Round in this weeks Anything Goes  Fit to Be Tied challenge on Art With No Boundaries. Drop by and have a look at the rest of the Teams examples all are Fit to be Tied. We also love it when you share our art with us so be sure to add your creations to the challenge while you're there.

WoW!She is so gorgeous. I can't wait for this art doll template to come out, as well as this lovely face. I really like the colour palette and the way that you've fastened the arms in front and the legs behind. That adds a lot of depth. The coppery touches add elegance.

Lovely Art Doll, Chris! I can't wait to see the paper doll templates, as well as the new face series. The brown and copper work so well together. The recycled card bits are a neat touch.

Your spirelli doll is fabulous! How smart to recycle the greeting card - I thought the pieces were metal! She is darling and oh, so cool at the same time...
