Mixed Media Prima Doll Tag

I bought a few of the Prima Doll stamps when they first came out, but hardly ever used them.  So, I thought I'd try my hand at a "mixed media" style tag using one of those stamps. 

I cut a piece of chipboard to 8.5" x 3.5", then used my Tim Holtz "Mini Baroque" die to give the tag a fancy top.  I painted the whole tag with gesso, then applied homemade texture paste through a Prima damask stencil.  Then I sprayed the tag with some of my homemade sprays.  

I added a paper panel and doily to the background, then layered on my paper pieced doll, sentiment (from Create with TLC) and flowers.  The tassel is some ribbon trim from my stash and a piece of Offray lace tied into a bow.  A butterfly charm and a few gemstones from my stash finished off the front. 

I used a Kaisercraft wooden flourish, and some K & Company chipboard pieces that I've had for a really long time to decorate the back.  I finished off the butterflies with some Distress Ink and some pearls from the Michael's dollar bin.  

I created a coordinating box to go along with this tag, which you can see in the video here.
