Bookmark 97 Art doll bookmark

 This started with a small deck of cards from Tim Holtz that I picked up the other day.  I actually have a very small deck of cards that I plan to use....just can't find at the moment.  So, I picked this "A" card from the deck and added my own "washi tape".  My daughter found some Curad tape that you normally use for bandaging, at the dollar store.  It was transparent tape and I just wrote in one of my favorite sayings:  Art and Life are One.
 I stamped some card stock with some script then I created the accordion arms, legs secured by eyelets.  I drew in the face on some of the stamped card stock to create the head and painted some shoes on her feet.
 
The photo below shows her back.  She has purchased washi tape and then I used more of the tape I made with the same quote as the front.
 
 
I used a product similar to Diamond glaze on her face and I am waiting for that to dry before attaching her to a staff-style bookmark.

I really like the idea of using playing cards.

I do too. I hope I am able to find my miniature deck. I have held on to it for so long with the intention of doing this and now can't find! lol
