My Cards and Tags: Tim Holtz Paperdolls with Inky Antics' Crafty Comments Stamp Set

There's a fabulous challenge theme of "Vintage/Times Past" this week over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  It was almost impossible for me to not go a Tim Holtz route with this one, so I had some fun with his paper dolls and a sentiment from Inky Antics' Crafty Comments stamp set.

I don't typically go with sepia-toned photo components in my projects, but lately I have enjoyed tweaking these paperdolls by adding accessories and some color here and there.  I always think about these people in the photos and what their lives were like.  I hope that they are happy to be immortalized in craft supplies and not mad about being stuck in an over-sized crown or pointy hat forever!  I do look at it as honoring them and keeping them alive through art and not just forgotten in a photo album somewhere.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
