Magical Paperdoll Birthday Card by Loonaki Magical Paperdoll Birthday Card by Loonaki
Okay, since I don't know how much time I'll have tomorrow (ew , university), and it's past midnight (here) anyways...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~AccidentalSketch !!! :hug:
Trishi, this baby is on her way to you for about a week already, so I hope she'll arrive soon (if the mail didn't lose her... :stare:).

Okay now... this was rather complicated. xD Her face and body are painted on the card together with the background. Her limbs, skirt, pigtails and bangs were painted on a seperate sheet of paper (while the limbs are made of 3 pieces each) and then cut out.
Arms, legs and pigtails are only attached to the card on one point, which makes them movable, like on a paperdoll. The bangs and skirt are also only glued on in some places, which makes the movable parts go underneath them, if needed (like the legs under the skirt, the skirt is just glued on at the belt).

This was made with: Canson Montval (200g/mē, cold pressed) watercolor paper, Ecoline liquid watercolors, Polychromos colored pencils, golden acrylic paint, some Copic Ciao markers, Copic Multiliners, white pastel chalk, Deleter white ink, Schmincke masking fluid, x-acto knifes, glue, thin wire (+hours, blood, sweat and tears... not really, but almost)

Close up photo (so you can see the golden paint):



Gif (so you can see that she can actually move around):
