ECS Friday Challenge Paper Dolls

In our little Mixed Media challenge group at ECS, the challenge this week is "Paper Dolls", so here is my first. I used one of Kimberly Crick's art doll templates which are free to use on her website at The Enchanted Gallery.

I printed this one on a tan colored card stock, stamped her legs with brown flourishes, drew black stripes on her arms, drew her face with pens, and I used a really pretty purple paper which I thought looked so nice on it's own, for her dress with some tulle behind it. The crown I stamped and colored and added some fibers and flower petals to give her a fun and funky look.

Since this is my first paper art doll, I am not sure, what are you supposed to do with the back of them, leave as is?
