SteamPunk Paper Dolls

SteamPunk Woman #1

SteamPunk Woman #2

I faced a new challenge in my art group, and that was to make a paper doll for an exchange.  I don't think that I have played with paper dolls since I was a  little girl, but I thought, heck, why not?! Well, if you know me, or have followed our blog, you know that I have developed a passion for steampunk, so my dolls had to follow that theme.  Of course, I couldn't just make one to give away...I wanted one for myself! So, only one of these will be heading to the exchange.

I stamped her dress form body on Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper, as well as her gloves.  Her head (Paper Inspirations), arms, and her pet raven(Rubbermoon) were stamped separately. I got out my new distress markers to color her flesh and hair. Next I mounted everything on heavy cardstock, backed it with paper and cut the parts out, so that I could make her arms moveable. Finished her off with gears, pearls, locks, diamond glaze, tissue tape, etc. Voila - there you have Parisian SteamPunk Women!
