I'm part of a FB group that you can find here. And saw such great inspiration. However when I went to do mine I thought it was a lot more difficult to make... because let's be honest here! A playing card is not exactly the most flattering of figures for a woman... I'm pretty sure that no one wants to be that rectangle from shoulders to hip lol
So I had to find a way to camouflage that she had no shoulders.... that's when I thought of some sequin ribbon that I had it was the perfect accessory for this lady. I also found her arms in a Sears Catalogue, the dress was part of an Elle magazine cut out and the legs from another. I added some washi tape as well to hide the seam of her skirt to sweater.
I tried to get her to stand up for the pictures.... but the legs were too flimsy... and I had to make her sit.
I left the card like it was because I liked to have the V of the brand showing up. I thought it was pretty neat. The face was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.
I'm entering this little doll in the following challenges:
