Magazine Addict – Papercraft Essentials Issue 74

This issue has some fabulous Polka Doodles Christmas stamps. There was also an article, by Su Pennick, on resist techniques. I tried ‘resist stamping using alcohol inks’  - ( you stamp on alcohol inks with Staz On inkpad and wipe it off) – but it didn’t work , maybe because the alcohol ink background I used had been hanging around for a while.  So I reverted to an old favourite, resist with clear embossing , and paperpieced onto her hat and boots. I had intended to paper-piece the coat too but the cutting around the hair was too complicated!
I’d like to enter this for the following challenges:
