Mashed or Baked??



I am in love the Inkurable Stampers blog, but haven't been able to play along much, for the simple fact is I dont have many stamps. ( Ive only been paper crafting for less then a year, so it will take time to build up all the tools and treats I want, and boy do I want!!).
They have a Paper art doll challenge going on which I thought I could try out with another thing Id been wanting to try - paper cutting. So with out further adieu 
VERA.

So using a spud for the body, arms ( fingers are tough lil suckers to carve!), and face, a swirly wave stamp by Daisy D stamp and a unidentified clear dragonfly stamp for the wings. She reminds me a bit of a seventies illustration book that the boys used to have.
Is Vera every thing i wanted her to be - definitely No, I had a lot more "polished" crisp arty look in mind, but I had fun playing any way.
