Miss UK - ATC Doll


The first ATC-Doll I ever saw was made by Margaret about a year ago. This week I had the opportunity to make one using some old maps of all things! This week's challenge on MAMMA which incidentially is also run by Margaret is to make an ATC on the theme of 'Maps'. Well, I never was any good at geography, but I love dolls - so no contest! This ATC-Doll has the limbs and head attached with brads, and her clothes and hair are made from an old UK Motorist's Atlas. The limbs and head fold up making her (roughly) the size of an ATC. She is made of plain card which I coloured with ink and chalk. Her facial features are drawn in with a Sharpie pen and detailed with Sakura pens, Ranger's Stickles and some Anita's 3D Clear Gloss finish.
As she looked so lovely (!!!!) I thought she could become a beauty queen representing the UK and her sash is made from a scrap of ribbon. I don't know about her 'vital statistics' though - lol!
