leftovers #2 courtesy of raggedy anne and andy

here we are with more leftovers!

when i saw the scallop circle i immediately thought of ronald macdonald, golliwogs 
and, my childhood favourite, raggedy anne and andy.

so in homage to my childhood here are favourite dolls!

i used some of our new papers from the hostess level one pack 
plus the new stamp set confetti-man that set is going to be useful!
scallop circle was used for the hair, collars and raggedy anne's apron and 
word window for arms, stripey legs and shoes.
small oval for arms and legs.
tag punch for body.
wide oval for apron and pants
owl punch for eyes, buttons and mouth

one thing i find tricky is doing a background for my punch art. 
most times all i am creating is the image and then i force myself to do 'something' with it!
because most punch art is quite fussy i am always careful not to overload the card with stuff so a simple background is always good.
how do you work out your backgrounds for your punch art?

cheers ears
