Dancers and Queens

My husband gave me a few packages of ATCs (artist trading cards), so I decided to see what I can do with them this morning.
I started with a set of stamps I got from Stampington, Le Bon Genre. I was also influenced by an article by Colette Copland in the latest issue of SEW Somerset where she made beautiful dresses out of paper ephemera.
The stamps I used are body parts: heads, hands and legs.  But because I don't have the feel and sense to make a proportionate body, I decided to use a heart shape for the torso part.  And then I used fabric for the dress.

But ATCs are fairly small, so I quickly moved to a bigger format, 6x6.  Here are a few more in the 6x6 size.
