Altered Playing card doll - RSD

Hello!  I'm back and this time I'm here to share with you something new on my blog.  This is my 2nd doll but I didn't share the 1st one with you yet.  This one I used a great image from Rick St-Dennis this one you can find in the store here.  I thought that head would be awesome for a little altered card doll.

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.

This little doll will be sent out in a swap that I'm participating in :)  Hope my partner likes her.
