I found a cute hand mirror at the Dollar Store and I just knew what I had to do. I used Rub-n-Buff in Patina to tone the silver down.
Prima's Julie Nutting's Mix Media Doll Stamp was just the ticket. When I think of Christmas I think of glitter. Yep, just the right paper was Cosmo Cricket Glitter Sheets in gold and red to make the dress (look how tiny her waist is). I colored Esther's face, arms, and hair with Copic markers. I used my Prima chalk edgers around all the edges. I scanned and made two copies of Esther (the paper doll). One was a copy and the other was a reverse copy. I layered the paper dolls and used pop dots to give her dimension.
The flowers were from my stash and touch of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in gold added a little twinkle. The little door is a Prima Shabby Chic Treasures sprayed with gold shine. The crown was made from Mod Podge Crafts and colored with Tim Holtz Distress Paint. You can't go vintage with out a Cameo Stick Pin from Webster's Pages. The little buttons came in my Flamingo Scraps Warehouse Sale Embellishment Box and added a little extra. The rose button is from Glitz. Roses at Christmas are magical. The little bird and other stick pin are from my stash.
Now for a look at the mirror side. (I was impressed I didn't get a reflection of the ceiling.)
If you have trouble locating the items I used on Esther's Christmas Ball Mirror just give Suzanne a shout via e-mail. I can honestly say that Suzanne knows the meaning of customer service. You should stop by Flamingo Scraps...there's a fantastic sale going on.
Before I leave I wanted to show a picture of Judy Garland as Esther in her Christmas Ball gown. I hope you get a chance see "Meet Me St. Louis".
