3-D Articulated Santos Cage Doll Shrine Kit - Medium
from Retro Cafe Art Galley

I fell in love with this Santos Cage Doll Shrine Kit from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. She stands 10 1/2 inches tall. The possibilities are wonderful and endless. I am also about to try my hand at their Scalloped Dome Bird Cage Art Doll Shrine Kit. If you like what you see here, be sure to visit their online store and their Facebook page to see a variety of designs created with this kit. You are sure to be inspired to the Moon and back!

Made with Angel wing Cut-outs, Fairy Art Doll Head Paper Cuts, 
Valentine Day Tag Charms, Mini Paper Roses,
Heart Skeleton Key charms, Collage Word Paper Cuts, 
Inka Gold, & Whimsey Brass Crowns

You can order the supplies you need from Retro Cafe Art Gallery and you can add your own supplies. If you are like me, I have a lot of this and that on hand from broken jewelry pieces, found items etc. Like the scalloped frame in the front with the dangling charms (from my stash) and the heart in the center is from Retro Cafe with some Diamond Stickles Glitter Glue and a added collage typewriter key.

The Queen of Hearts Mini Card is from Retro Cafe and I placed it inside a Vintage metal slide holder, painting it with Inka Gold ( Love Inka products) and attached it to silver ball chain that I also rubbed with Inka Gold. The Heart word cut out is also from Retro Cafe.

You don't have to decorate the back side, but I had so much fun with this, I couldn't resist.
The cut out heart is from Retro Cafe (and the skeleton key heart) I attached one of their winged metal heart charms to it with a word cut out in the center. I learned a lot making this first doll kit and I decided a few things that I will do different on the next.. and now I can't wait to make another one! I am pretty sure this could be addicting!

I added this cute little mini gold box mirror I had forever and since her arms move, she can hold it or put it in the cage below her. Oh, and the little tag hearts hanging also have words on the backs of them. There is a lot to LOVE here. If you are interested in my Queen of Hearts, she will be available in my Etsy shop shortly, OR you can visit 
Retro Cafe Art Gallery (click below)  and make your own!

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon to see my next Art Doll Shrine Creation!
