Ladyboy Card

This card is A5 in size using a blank made from white linen effect card.
This has got to be one of the strangest cards I have ever made, but perfect for the gentleman it was for!  The brief was for a card for my sister-in-laws neighbour who travels to Thailand on business frequently and as a result is the butt of many jokes and if I could come up with a  ladyboy theme that would be brilliant,  no pressure then!

I wracked my brains and then, all of a sudden, remembered the paper dolls that used to be on the back of Bunty when I was a girl! So I did a bit of Googling and found this paper doll set,  bulls-eye!! The background picture is a street at night in Bangkok, perfect!
I’ve made simple decoupage layers for the lady and her dresses, adding micro glitter, small gems and a layered flower in her hair.  The old fashioned style Dymo tape just finishes the whole effect. I just love it when my mind goes off at a weird tangent!!
